Meet the CoolVines Wine Geek! He’ll guide you toward – or away from! – wines that have a unique flavor profile: intentionally oxidized wines, earthy, stinky wines, wines with a bit of fritz on the tongue. Look for him throughout our web site, and on the shelves in our stores, to point the way toward these geeky wines.
Clos des Papes is regarded among the elite domaines of the Chateauneuf-du-Pape appellation, renown for its elegance, power, complexity, and precision. One of the original Chateau's that stated the Chateauneuf appellation, Paul Avril notably led the Estate in its recent history until 2009. The 2008 is medium bodied and finesse driven, with excellent balance and long finish.
