Tasting Notes

"Full red robe; the nose accentuates ripe berry fruits, cooked plums, prunes, fruit gums with a hint of iodine, a note of clarity attached. It’s an elegant opening. The palate revolves around a bonny wave of aromatic red fruits, has a gourmand, tasty aspect with a thread of sweetness into its rounded finale, the tannins barely noticeable such is the velvet in them. This has the domaine’s signature of refinement, and its content is well shaped, continuous, the aftertaste perfumed. The hand made feel only adds to its appeal. Serve in a large glass to fully appreciate its aromatic qualities. 14.5°."

5 out of 5 Stars - Jonathan Livingstone-Learmonth, Cradle of the Rhone

"Plenty of bright red-berry fruit with wild-herb freshness that neatly complements that. Medium-bodied, in the context of this very warm vintage, with moderate tannins supporting the rather generous finish. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold"

92 Points - James Suckling, April 2022

"The classic 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape checks in as 80% Grenache, 15% Syrah, and 5% Mourvèdre that was partially destemmed and brought up in old barrels. It offers a big, exuberant bouquet of kirsch liqueur, peppery garrigue, licorice, and violets. This carries to a ripe, medium to full-bodied, sexy 2019 that has sweet tannins and loads of character. I’d happily drink bottles anytime over the coming 10-12 years."

90-92 Points - Jeb Dunnuck, October 2020

The Producer

Domaine Porte Rouge

Domaine Porte Rouge is one of the newer estates in the Southern Rhone Valley. In fact, it only dates back to 2001, when Bernard Friedmann created the estate.

However, the name of domaine has a history. The estate, located in the village of Chateauneuf du Pape took its name, which is translated into Red Gate, from the previous entrance that led to the village of Chateauneuf du Pape.

Prior to owning Domaine Porte Rouge, Bernard Friedmann knew about the wine trade, but on the retail end, not as a wine maker, as he worked for a negociant for years. The first bottling for Domaine Porte Rouge was produced from the very hot, 2003 vintage.

One of the first decisions the new owner, Bernard Friedmann did was to bring in the well-known consultant, Philippe Cambie. The vineyards of Domaine Porte Rouge are farmed completely organically. They were certified as Agriculture Biologique in 2014 by Ecocert.

Domaine Porte Rouge owns a tiny, 2.5 hectare parcel of vines in the Chateauneuf du Pape appellation. The vineyard is spread out among 6 different parcels. The vines are old, with an average age of close to 60 years. However, they have some old vines that are approaching 90 years of age, which is quite respectable. The vineyard is planted to 85% Grenache and 15% Syrah.
