2022 Clos des Papes | Rhône En Primeur

Our 2022 Rhone EP campaign will take place in early 2024 but, to get us in the spirit, we are delighted to offer the 2022 Clos des Papes at £366.00 per 6 bottles IB.

Clos des Papes is gold standard Châteauneuf and rightly revered as one of the greatest in the appellation. The wines are famously restrained and elegant, with a Burgundy-like finesse thanks to winemaker Vincent Avril's magic touch and historic terroir.

After the tiny 2021 crop, 2022 sadly follows suit with yields down 50% due to hail. However, as is often the case with wine, low quantity correlated to very high quality and Avril is delighted with 2022: "It's the kind of vintage I like. Elegant, powerful but not too much”
