Every vintage, this fine Châteauneuf wows judges and clocks up awards. It's a voluptuous red from an 18th-century family and 7th-generation winemaker, Emilie. Velvety with lush, ripe black fruit, a rich wrap of spice and a lingering herbal finish.

Création d’Emilie is crafted by the owner of Domaine du Père Caboche, Emilie, daughter of Jean-Pierre Boisson. Their family has been associated with Châteauneuf-du-Pape for centuries, with Jean-Pierre a former mayor of this premium appellation. Création d’Emilie combines the four main terroirs of the region. Le Crau, its most famous and finest cru, with pebbles on red clay that contribute to the fullness of the wine. Then Les Serres, with its pebbles and alluvium soil, great for Grenache. And finally, Les Plagnes (pebbly) and Le Parc (limestone), both excellent for Syrah. The 2021 has ripe, rounded tannins, dark fruits and herbal spice complexity. If drinking now, decant early and serve with roast game, lamb or ratatouille. Will cellar.

"Vibrant and spicy with notes of cherries, red plums, peppercorns and some cured meat. Medium body" James Suckling
