AOC châteauneuf-du-pape

Pierre Troupel


A garnet-red Châteauneuf-du-Pape, delicious, mineral with a beautiful vivacity.


Aromas of red forest fruits such as blackberries, raspberries and even black cherries. There are spices and a nice freshness on the palate.  Ideal with traditional dishes, grilled meats and cheeses.  Enjoy at 15 C°

Homage to Pierre Troupel

This cuvée and its label pay homage to the grandfather of the owner, Sophie Kessler-Matière, who had piercing blue eyes and was an affineur of Bleu d’Auvergne cheese in the Cantal region. Today we offer gîtes and family catering at Chez Mimi – Raulhac
