A collaboration between the winemaker of Cellier des Princes, Thierry Ferlay, and acclaimed Grenache master winemaker, Philippe Cambie, will be one of the main attractions on this Rhône producer’s stand.
Former French rugby star Philippe Cambie, who was named ‘Winemaker of the Year’ by US wine critic, Robert Parker in 2010, is regarded as one of the most eminent wine consultants working in the southern Rhône.
He has worked with Cellier des Princes and Thierry Ferlay to create two new limited edition wines under the Hérédita label. The Hérédita is a blend of 70% Grenache and 30% Syrah from vineyards around Châteauneuf du Pape and is an elegant wine with notes of fresh red berries and liquorice, a velvety mouthfeel, with smooth tannins and spicy finish.
The Châteauneuf-du-Pape Hérédita comes from hillside parcels of old vine Grenache in Courthezon and is 95% Grenache and 5% Mourvèdre to produce an intense wine with notes of kirsch, black fruits and blueberries and a long finish.
Cellier des Princes is also launching a number of new brands at Vinexpo including two new rosés, La Princesse and A l’Ombre des Parosols, which are both a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault. It also has a wine from the promoted Cru of the Rhône valley, Le Mas des Falaises Cairanne and a new organic label, Autenti.
