            [Notes2] => A 40 hectare estate covering one commune, Sorgues, in the southern part of the appellation. The soils here are alluvial with large deposits of gravel, mixed with clay and iron oxide. The climate is Mediterranean with hot summers and mild winters and rainfall averages about 640mm annually. The vineyards are primarily planted with Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre and Cinsault, all of which are grown `gobelet` style apart from the Syrah which is trained on wires. The estate adopts a minumum intervention approach to its farming and harvesting is done by hand.

                                    [GrapeCharacteristics] => the Grenache is very versatile producing wines that vary in color from light rose to inky black and in sweetness levels from dry to dessert style. It can produce wines of surprising depth and flavors of spices, jammy black fruit.

Aromas and flavors  can range from black fruits and white pepper to any "earthy" descriptor like bacon, leather, game and especially, burnt rubber.

                    [Notes1] => This 40 hectare domaine, owned and run by the Geniest family for over one hundred years, has all its vineyard holdings in the commune of Sorgues. The gravelly/sandy soils in this southerly part of the appellation provide well drained, cooler soils than some of the heavier, clay rich parts of the region. After harvest, the heavily dominant Grenache wines are fully de-stemmed before being fermented in cement tank and aged for approximately two years in large casks. The style here is very distinct with a more Burgundian feel to the wines than commonly found.

                    [Notes3] => Châteauneuf-du Pape
                    [Notes4] =>  Discovering the wines of Mas St Louis 2015 was the culmination of fifteen year’s work. This
estate is our unicorn, our Atlantis. Up until 2015 it seemed that the only producer in
Châteauneuf du Pape who maintained the theory that the Grenache based wines of this
famous appellation have the potential to express Pinot Noir like aromas and texture was the
unattainable Château Rayas. Rayas, it was boasted, achieved its ethereal like qualities from
the grapes grown on cool, sandy soils slightly to the north east of the village of Châteauneuf du Pape itself. However many years ago
in conversation with the now deceased Paul Avril of Clos des Papes, he claimed that the commercial survival of the appellation after
the devastation of World War II was due in no small part to Burgundian negoçiants who visited the area after the war and fell in love
with the Pinot-like qualities of the wines. These wines were then bought in bulk, transported to Burgundy and then bottled,
supposedly to be sold to the all-important Parisian market and export. It is of course alleged that many of these wines were in fact
used to bolster some weaker Pinots from the Côte d’Or such were the aromatic similarities. Sadly by the early 1990’s this lighter
style had been shunned for more highly extracted, often overripe wines with the claim being that due to global warming and the
emergence of the so-called ‘super’ cuvées that it was no longer possible to produce a more elegant wine – apart from Rayas and its
apparently unique terroir. Mas St Louis proves this theory wrong and is a style of Châteauneuf du Pape that will have people staring
into their glasses in disbelief.
The domaine has been owned by the Geniest family for over a hundred years and apart from one small parcel of Syrah has all its
vineyard holdings in the commune of Sorgues, the southern part of the appellation of Châteauneuf du Pape. The soil type here is a
mixture of clay, gravel and sand with a scattering of galets roulets on the surface. 
                    [Notes5] =>  This soil combination provides heat during the day
but much cooler night time temperatures which help maintain higher levels of acidity in the grapes. At harvest time, the grapes are
de-stemmed and then crushed before being pumped into traditional concrete tanks. Both alcoholic and malolactic fermentation take
place in tank and the wines are then aged for 18+ months in large, oak casks in order to reduce the primary fruit characteristics in
favour of more spicy notes. The wine is a blend of 70% Grenache, 15% Syrah and 15% Cinsault, Mourvèdre and Picpoul Noir.
Prepare to be amazed.

                    [Notes1] => This 40 hectare domaine, owned and run by the Geniest family for over one hundred years, has all its vineyard holdings in the commune of Sorgues. The gravelly/sandy soils in this southerly part of the appellation provide well drained, cooler soils than some of the heavier, clay rich parts of the region. After harvest, the heavily dominant Grenache wines are fully de-stemmed before being fermented in cement tank and aged for approximately two years in large casks. The style here is very distinct with a more Burgundian feel to the wines than commonly found.

                    [Notes4] =>  Discovering the wines of Mas St Louis 2015 was the culmination of fifteen year’s work. This
estate is our unicorn, our Atlantis. Up until 2015 it seemed that the only producer in
Châteauneuf du Pape who maintained the theory that the Grenache based wines of this
famous appellation have the potential to express Pinot Noir like aromas and texture was the
unattainable Château Rayas. Rayas, it was boasted, achieved its ethereal like qualities from
the grapes grown on cool, sandy soils slightly to the north east of the village of Châteauneuf du Pape itself. However many years ago
in conversation with the now deceased Paul Avril of Clos des Papes, he claimed that the commercial survival of the appellation after
the devastation of World War II was due in no small part to Burgundian negoçiants who visited the area after the war and fell in love
with the Pinot-like qualities of the wines. These wines were then bought in bulk, transported to Burgundy and then bottled,
supposedly to be sold to the all-important Parisian market and export. It is of course alleged that many of these wines were in fact
used to bolster some weaker Pinots from the Côte d’Or such were the aromatic similarities. Sadly by the early 1990’s this lighter
style had been shunned for more highly extracted, often overripe wines with the claim being that due to global warming and the
emergence of the so-called ‘super’ cuvées that it was no longer possible to produce a more elegant wine – apart from Rayas and its
apparently unique terroir. Mas St Louis proves this theory wrong and is a style of Châteauneuf du Pape that will have people staring
into their glasses in disbelief.
The domaine has been owned by the Geniest family for over a hundred years and apart from one small parcel of Syrah has all its
vineyard holdings in the commune of Sorgues, the southern part of the appellation of Châteauneuf du Pape. The soil type here is a
mixture of clay, gravel and sand with a scattering of galets roulets on the surface. 
                    [Notes5] =>  This soil combination provides heat during the day
but much cooler night time temperatures which help maintain higher levels of acidity in the grapes. At harvest time, the grapes are
de-stemmed and then crushed before being pumped into traditional concrete tanks. Both alcoholic and malolactic fermentation take
place in tank and the wines are then aged for 18+ months in large, oak casks in order to reduce the primary fruit characteristics in
favour of more spicy notes. The wine is a blend of 70% Grenache, 15% Syrah and 15% Cinsault, Mourvèdre and Picpoul Noir.
Prepare to be amazed.

About this product +

Producer >

This 40 hectare domaine, owned and run by the Geniest family for over one hundred years, has all its vineyard holdings in the commune of Sorgues. The gravelly/sandy soils in this southerly part of the appellation provide well drained, cooler soils than some of the heavier, clay rich parts of the region. After harvest, the heavily dominant Grenache wines are fully de-stemmed before being fermented in cement tank and aged for approximately two years in large casks. The style here is very distinct with a more Burgundian feel to the wines than commonly found.

Viticulture >

A 40 hectare estate covering one commune, Sorgues, in the southern part of the appellation. The soils here are alluvial with large deposits of gravel, mixed with clay and iron oxide. The climate is Mediterranean with hot summers and mild winters and rainfall averages about 640mm annually. The vineyards are primarily planted with Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre and Cinsault, all of which are grown `gobelet` style apart from the Syrah which is trained on wires. The estate adopts a minumum intervention approach to its farming and harvesting is done by hand.
