Chateauneuf-du-Pape

Pronounced: Shat-o-nerf derr papp

A region in the south of the Rhone Valley, France. This region allows 13 grape varieties to be blended. Grenache is the major grape used (to provide structure), usually blended with considerable amounts of Mourvedre and/or Syrah. The other grape varieties permitted are Cinsault, Counoise, Vaccarese, Picpoul Noir, Terret Noir, Grenache Blanc, Clairette, Bourboulenc, Roussanne, Picardan.

It is rare that a wine contains all 13 grape varieties, although Chateau de Beaucastel and Clos des Papes do.
