    Description

    Toen Johannes 22 in Avignon de pausenresidentie optrok waarvan hij bisschop was geweest, ontwikkelde hij in 1317 ook het wijndomein van Châteauneuf-du-Pape, dat tot dan toe Calcernier heette. Calcernier, dat gedomineerd werd door het Castel-papal, het pauselijke zomerverblijf, werd omgedoopt tot Chateauneuf-Calcernier. In 1317 liet Johannes 22 de eerste wijngaarden aanleggen door enkele streekgenoten uit Cahors, de stad waaruit hij afkomstig was. Wat later Châteauneuf-du-Pape zou heten, werd toen dus het eerste pauselijke wijndomein. De wijnbouwers uit Cahors plantten er de eerste percelen op de terreinen die achtergelaten waren door de Tempeliers. Deze laatste waren verjaagd door koning Filips de Schone. In 1325 strekte het pontificale wijndomein zich uit over 8 hectaren. Urbanus 5 droeg bij aan de ontwikkeling van het productiegebied door er muskaatdruiven op te laten planten. Vanaf 1383 werd Châteauneuf de lievelingsresidentie van paus Clemens 7 die erheen ging op de rug van een muilezelin, vandaar de beroemde legende “de muilezelin van de paus”, verteld door Alphonse Daudet. Later, in de 18e eeuw, werden de wijngaarden verder ontwikkeld door de lokale aristocratie en door de burgerij van kooplieden. Aan het einde van de 19e eeuw werd de naam van de gemeente Châteauneuf-Calcernier veranderd in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, op initiatief van haar burgemeester Joseph Ducos. Toen in 1893 de wijngaarden verwoest werden door de druifluisziekte, ondernam diezelfde Joseph Ducos, eigenaar van Château la Nerthe, de nodige stappen om ze te restaureren. Hij plantte er verscheidene druivenrassen, of “cépages” in het Frans, waaronder Grenache, Mourvèdre en Syrah, de 3 voornaamste variëteiten, die aan deze wijn de kracht, volle en zachte smaak, kleur en kwaliteit van bewaarwijnen zullen geven. Daarna zullen ongewone tonen toegevoegd worden en met de komst van de andere druivenrassen zullen nieuwe harmonieën ontstaan. De assemblage of het blenden van druivenrassen is een vernuftige onderneming die leidt tot het creëren van deze complexe en prachtig uitgebalanceerde rode en witte wijnen. Deze bodems, die vroeger onder de Middellandse Zee lagen en later onder de Rhône, hebben nog steeds diezelfde minerale structuur bestaande uit stenen en keien die ’s nachts de warmte afgeven die ze overdag opgeslagen hebben, wat de opmerkelijke bijzonderheid is van de streek van Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Het droge en warme mediterrane klimaat in de zomer speelt samen met de mistral een bondgenotenrol door bij te dragen aan tot de gezonde staat van de wijngaard. De wijnbouw speelt op een directe en indirecte manier een heel grote rol in de lokale economie. Vandaag de dag telt de bevolking meer dan 2000 inwoners.

      Description

      Shortly after having established the Popes’ residency in Avignon, where he had previously been Bishop, John XXII started to dlop the Chateauneuf-du-Pape vineyard, formerly known as Calcernier. Calcernier, dominated by the Pope Castle, became Chateauneuf-Calcernier. In 1317, John XXII had the first vines planted by winemakers from Cahors, his home town. What will later be known as Châteauneuf-du-Pape became the first Pontifical vineyard. The winemakers from Cahors planted the first plots on ground abandoned by the Templars, chased by King Philippe le Bel. By 1325, the Pontifical vineyard covered 8 hectares. Pope Urbain V further dloped the production area by planting Muscat grapes. From 1833 onwards, Chateauneuf become Pope Clement VII’s favourite residence. He would come riding on a mule, hence the famous legend ‘The Pope’s mule’ written by Alphonse Daudet. Later, in the 18th Century, the vineyard was dloped by the local aristocracy and the commercial bourgeoisie. At the end of the 19th Century, under the leadership of Joseph Ducos, mayor of Chateauneuf-Calcernier, the town was renamed Chateauneuf-du-Pape. In 1893, after the vines had been devastated by phylloxera, the same Joseph Ducos, owner of the Nerthe Castle, undertook the vineyard’s reconstruction. He planted sral grape varieties, among which the 3 major ones, grenache, mourvedre and syrah would bring strength, mellow, and rich colour, essential characteristics of great wines. The other varieties then bring unusual notes and new combinations become possible. The blending of grape varieties is a subtle task, giving birth to complex and beautifully balanced red or white wines. One of the key characteristics of the Chateauneuf-du-Pape terroir is the mineral signature of land previously covered by the Mediterranean sea and then the Rhone river. The ground is still covered with stones and pebbles, restoring at night the heat accumulated during the day. The hot and dry Mediterranean climate as well as the Mistral play an essential role in the good health of the vineyard. Vine culativation and wine making play a very important part, whether direcly or indirectly, in the local economy. Today, the population is over 2000 inhabitants.
