What the Critics say
Le Pied de Baud Chateauneuf-du-Pape comes from one single hectare of vines surrounded by forest in the North of the appellation. Grenache, Mourvèdre and Cinsault thrive here in the shade of old oaks and deeply rooted in alluvial soils of river gravel and clay, once deposited by the prehistoric Rhône river. The wine spends 18 months in large foudres and terracotta jars before bottling.
