Created in 1952 by Charles Brotte, the characteristic shape of a bottle of Fiole du Pape Rouge has inspired many legends. Some explain its origins as a large fire that distorted an already classic Châteauneuf-du-Pape. For others, it is a traditional way of working with glass that forms its unforgettable silhouette and gives it a peculiar look.
But in reality it is the result of a competition between local potters whose subject was "The wild movement of the vine under the Mistral". The bottle imitates a Grenache vine that grows under the pressure of the strong Provencal wind, helping to create a consistent wine, made with up to 40% reserve wines, that can be consumed immediately and also kept for many years.
Elegant and balanced taste; powerful and powerful; notes of blueberry and strawberry jam, pepper, cloves.This red wine is original, elegant and reminiscent of the wines of yesteryear.
