AOC châteauneuf-du-pape

Pierre Troupel


A Châteauneuf-du-Pape white wine that is uninhibited, fresh and crisp.

Tasting & gastronomy

Fresh and floral nose, with aromas of white peaches. Freshness and liveliness on the palate. A delicious and very mineral wine. For a nice aperitif and perfect with shellfish and sushi! Enjoy at 10 – 12 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
