Réserve Benoit XII Châteauneuf du Pape


Named for Benoit (Benedict) XII, the tireless reformer and third pope of Avignon, Réserve Benoit XII is nurtured in the same Southern Rhône Valley vineyards that surround Châteauneuf-du-Pape and its four neighboring villages. The vineyards feature large siliceous pebble terraces with sandy red clay that will reward cellaring for 5-7 Jahre. Réserve Benoit XII will be best served at temperature 60-65°F if opened one hour before serving with red meat, Spiel, casseroles and cheeses.
