Why Buy Me
A historic Château in the Southern Rhône, located just to the south of Orange and owned by the Bernard family, Château Beauchêne farm 80 hectares of vines split between Châteauneuf du Pape, Côtes du Rhône Villages and Côtes du Rhône. Michel & Dominique Bernard run the Château with the help of their daughter Amandine and a team of six others in the winery and vineyards.
The wine is aged both in foudres (large old oak barrels) and newer, smaller oak barriques for around a year before bottling. This early bottle date for Châteauneuf du Pape tends to capture a dynamically powerful young wine and consequently, "Hommage Odette Bernard" is highly ageable.
