Rigorous bud pruning, as well as green harvesting and leaf thinning, keep yields low. The picking is entirely by hand, with sorting in the vineyard and again in the cellar. Underripe stalks are removed. The wine stays on the skins for over 4 weeks; the Grenache is aged in old oak casks, the Mourvèdre and the Syrah are aged on their lees in 600L barrels used to age 1 to 3 previous vintages, and the Cinsault is aged in stainless steel tanks. Aging lasts approximately 18 months before the wine is bottled without filtration.

Wine AdvocateI'm not too proud to admit that I underrated the 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape Signature last year. It appears to have put on weight and fleshed out, and while it lacks the elegance and finesse of the 2016, it does offer ample concentration, tar and olive-tinged flavors of cherries and plums and a rich, velvety finish.
