“This is Châteauneuf at its most seductive.”
– Robert Parker on the Boisson family’s wines

We’re thrilled to bring you the latest vintage of this rich, spicy (and hugely acclaimed) southern Rhône superstar from a historic family estate.

The story begins in 1777, when Jean-Louis Boisson married into the Chambellan family, and Domaine du Père Caboche was born. It’s one of the oldest, continuously family-run estates in the region, and makes what Parker calls “enormously delicious” wines. And no wonder he’s so smitten…

“The most famous terroir is the plateau of La Crau.” – Hugh Johnson, The World Atlas of Wine

The Boisson family proudly own vines on that legendary Châteauneuf plateau, next to icons like Vieux Télégraphe and Bonneau, while their other vines have prestigious neighbors such as Saint Préfert and Clos des Papes—very good company indeed. For years, longtime Châteauneuf mayor Jean-Pierre Boisson ran the estate, and now, his daughter Emilie continues the tradition, making what Rhône expert Jeb Dunnuck calls “beautiful wines.”

Thanks to our close friendship with Emilie, you have exclusive access to her signature release. Showcasing the glorious 2020 vintage, the latest release arrives with 91 points and a gold medal from Gilbert & Gaillard plus a 94-point rating from critic Andreas Larsson. He wrote:

“Fragrant nose offering violet, wild raspberry, cherry, clove, ginger and fine oak notes underneath. Polished palate with supple tannin...delicate red fruit, fine spiciness and a long suave finish.”

Only a few hundred cases made—get in soon.
