Châteauneuf-du-Pape is one of France’s classic reds, and the jewel in the southern Rhône’s crown – famed for its rich flavors and age-worthiness. Domaine les Escondudes (a ‘hidden’ estate) lies right next door to famed Vieux Télégraphe. But there was no hiding this gem from huge acclaim.

It has several gold medal wins to its name – including two for this 2015 and a 90-92 point rating from Josh Raynolds at “Lively and sharply delineated, offering intense raspberry and spicecake flavors … Shows very good clarity and thrust on the chewy finish, which is firmed by dusty tannins that fade slowly into the sweet, juicy fruit.”

Domaine les Escondudes comes courtesy of our long-time partner (and local star) Thierry Ferlay. He makes this dark, brooding, berry-laden beauty using premium fruit and flavor-enhancing galets roulés (round stones that absorb the sun's heat and gently release it to the vines throughout the night). The result is an elegantly structured wine with ripe, black fruit aromas and flavors. Full and rounded on the palate, it is the perfect match for casseroles, roasted meats, game and full-flavored cheeses.

With top Burgundy and Bordeaux costing well over $100 a bottle, Châteauneuf-du-Pape is one of France’s true fine wine bargains. And while a bottle of Vieux Télégraphe costs $65-plus, this exclusive discovery is yours for under $35, making it one of the best values in this value-rich region. A special opportunity – order today.
