Today, this plot makes up a splendid unit of 25 uninterrupted hectares of vines, around an ancient little hunting shelter lost in the
middle of trees, 4 km far from Chteauneuf-du-Pape Village. Since 1864, The Famille Quiot is the unique owner of this plot « les
Combes d’Arnevels » located in the north-west of the appellation. Last centaury, this place was a hunting shelter, that means a place
where men meet together to share their mind and to spend a good time with friends.

"Vintage 2011 - USA
moving to the reds, the 2011 Chateauneuf du Pape les Combes d'Arnevels is a mostly concrete tank-aged blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. offering up notions of black cherry, new leather, licorice and lots of earthiness, this mediumbodied, fresh effort has solid tannin and good overall focus. it is a solid, possibly outstanding red and should be consumed over the coming 5-6 years. drink now - 2019

"This is ready-to-drink Châteauneuf. A charming raspberry flavor mixes easily with a dried herb note, while the tannins are supple and the texture is creamy. Drink it over the next 5–6 years.
