About the wine

Frederic pulled out all the stops when making this seriously-special Châteauneuf-du-Pape
  • Secret family techniques bring structure and some serious punch to this rich and smooth little number.

  • It’s bursting at the seams with dark berries and delicate floral notes, and it’s excellent length means your enjoyment of this wine will go on. And on. And on.

  • Be warned though, there’s not a lot going around. It’s an increasingly popular appellation so pick up this treasure now because, as Frederic says, ‘‘later’ will be too late!’

Meet the winemaker - Frederic Maillet

  • His family have been making wine from their family estate in the heart of Châteauneuf-du-Pape for generations. 
  • He sees his work in the vineyards as a long term effort, he wants to use Angel funding to plant new vineyards for future generations to benefit from.
  • Frederic specialises in old grape varieties like Vaccarèse and Counoise as he believes they give great complexity to his wines. Having tasted them, we have to agree!
