Clos du Roi means that this is from the walled vineyard of the King. So is it the King's or the Pope's?

Hand-harvested to very low yields (22 hl/ha), from pebbled terraces and whole bunch, pressed with 12 months maturation in one-year-old oak barrels. Only 4,000 bottles of this wine are made each year.

This historic estate was taken over by the Callet family in 1996, who have modernized and renovated it into the Rh̫ne powerhouse that it is now. The Master Blender, ex-rugby player and fruity Grenache lover behind this wine, Philippe Cambie, won Robert Parker's 'Best Oenologist in the World' in 2010. Grapes from 40-year-old, organic, low yielding vines, grown on the famous galets roul̩s soils and battered by the Mistral.
