Deep ruby in colour, bordering on garnet at the edge. A fruit and spiced nose with hints of ripe berries, morello cherries, truffles, and cedar. The palate is elegant and well balanced, mature flavours of leather, spiced forest fruits, and roasted game. Persistent and powerful, the flavours ensure a wine of excellent length.
This wine, close to our hearts here at Maison Brotte, was created in 1952 by Charles Brotte with the co-operation of local provençale glass and ceramic craftsmen. The unique bottle shape represents the gnarled and twisted vines typical of the region due to their struggle of growing against the Mistral wind. The bottle is exclusive as we are the only winery permitted to use this shape. This wine is a masterful blend of multiple vintages of our best cuvées, aged according to the traditions and know-how of our esteemed Maison. The Fiole du Pape is the most sold bottle of Châteauneuf in the world today.
