Grape Varieties : grenache 80%, syrah 10%, mourvèdre 10%.
Chateauneuf du Pape Roc Epine is a sweetly fruited, elegant red that gives up notions of black raspberry, melted liquorice, sweet spice and hints of crushed flowers. Medium-bodied, supple and nicely textured, with fine tannin and excellent freshness and focus. Every sip makes you want to go back for more
The roots of this southern Rhône family estate date back to 1780, when their ancestor first planted vines in Tavel and pioneered wine production there. Fast forward to 1970 and grandfather of the youngest generation, Jean Pierre Lafond, built a cellar on the site they have today. He had a great love of horses, so named the domaine after a great racehorse, Roquepine, adding a more Provençal spelling. Based in Tavel, the family has over the years gained prized vineyards in many of the top appellations, including Lirac and Châteauneuf. Lirac is a quarter of the size of its more famous neighbour and only 10% of production is white.
With a family history going back centuries, this family owned producer remain committed to quality wine with very traditional qualities. They are also 100% organic.
