Domaine de Cristia Châteauneuf-du-Pape

The Grangeon family owns Domaine de Cristia and farms just over 30 acres, spread through 4 different parcels; Le Cristia (which is broken into two parts, an upper and lower), Saint Georges and La Roquete. They have a number of old vines, and in a normal year they produce four Châteauneufs, a traditional red and white, and two special cuvees. Their Vieilles Vignes is 100% Grenache that comes all from sandy soils and is brought up all in old barrels. Their more modern styled cuvee is the cuvee Renaissance, and it’s roughly 60% Grenache, with the balance Mourvedre and Syrah, that’s aged all 25% new French oak. 

Most of the domaine's wines are located in the lieu-dit Cristia, which has mainly sandy soils well suited to Grenache. Baptiste Grangeon is also responsible for the winemaking of the exceptional Chapelle St. Theodoric wines​.​ These are all knock-out wines simply loaded with fruit, freshness and purity in the beautifully textured Cristia house style. There is excellent balance and finesse across the range with polished tannins to the fore.

​"As I have indicated over the last few years, this is one of the super newer producers in Chateauneuf-du-Pape. Their cellars are in the village of Courthezon, which is located adjacent to the very northeast sector of the appellation. This superb Chateauneuf-du-Pape producer also fashions tasty Cotes du Rhones meant to be consumed during their first few years of life."
