Châteauneuf-du-Pape is known for it amazing soil of large rolled stones which laid on the bed of the Rhône river in ancient times. These stones hold the heat of the day’s sun and warm the vines in the brisk evening air. Chapoutier’s La Bernardine is quite unique in that it is made up of only one to three grape varieties when 13 are allowed by AOC law. At such low yields, Michel produces a rich, flavorful wine with moderate tannins.
