Maison Brotte - Chateauneuf du Pape, La Fiole du Pape

This wine is vinified from the best hand picked grapes. A blend of 80% Grenanche, 10% Mourvedre, 10% Syrah. Syrah gives the structure of the wine and good finishing. It has plenty of character and evokes a hint of spice.

This wine is sold in a misshapen bottle covered in phoeny dust. There are normally 3 or 4 vintages included in the blend and the current version includes the 2006 (about the best blend that Robert Parker said he had tasted of this cuuvee).

The wine reveals classic notes of garrigue, lavender, pepper, earth, sweet kirch, roasted mushroom and meat juices. Already drinking well, it should continue to proovide pleasure over the next 8 years.


  1. any idea where can we get this wine??? I tasted it at Brazil Churrasco but can't found it on the market.

  2. Where are you, it's an easy to find wine in Houston Texas.
