ABOUT THE WINE
In 2007 Marceau (Marc) Cellier decided to retire and hand over his vineyards to his three children (Ludovic, Julien and Benoit) and Nathalie (Ludovic’s wife). They are the 8th generation of the Cellier family to work the vine and to make top class Rhone wines. Domaine les 3 Cellier was thus born on August 1st, 2007, with the breakup of Domaine Saint Benoit. The Cellier family retained 13.4 hectares of wines, all within the Châteauneuf-du-Pape appellation.
Bright, pungent aromas of black cherry, plum, white pepper and a hint of cigar-box. Rich kirsch on the palate, framed by smooth tannins. Supremely drinkable.
Best with grilled pork or chicken; an excellent wine for a summer barbecue.
The Cellier family has been growing grapes in the Rhône Valley for 8 generations.
