PRODUCT OVERVIEW/REVIEW:
Vignobles Mayard is a fifth-generation family-owned and operated estate nestled in the heart of the village of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. It is currently managed by Françoise, Béatrice, and Didier Mayard, who tend their 43 hectares of vineyards planted to varietals indigenous to the southern Rhône. Their deep love for and knowledge of the land is reflected in each and every one of their stunning cuvées.

Vignoble Mayard is the same producer behind the very limited "Clos du Calvaire" 500ml bottles that were shipped stateside accidentally last year and we sold back in November. Today's offer is actually the same wine, but it is packaged under a different name and label for the American market. If you were lucky enough to score that wine, you already know that today's offer is a real treat.

Today's wine is a blend of 70% Grenache from 40-year-old vines, 20% Syrah, and 10% Cinsault, both from 25-year-old vines. It is aged for 18 months in cement tanks before bottling, and the absence of oak allows the nuanced fruit-and-terroir-driven characters to shine. 

92 points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
This "is an open, flattering effort that boasts impressive complexity. Peppery spices mark the nose, alongside notes of mixed berries, leather, and garrigue, while the full-bodied palate is expansive and velvety. Hints of leather join star anise and black cherries on the finish. It’s a strong effort, which should drink well for at least 6-7 years.” (10/30/20)
