Château Maucoil

The History of Maucoil dates back to Roman times: the well that still today supplies the château back then allowed establishing a Roman legion!

The source of the Castle Maucoil and the closeness of her Via Agrippa are at the origin of this Roman presence. In 2009, Bénédicte and Charles Bonnet took up the challenge of reviving that ancient Châteauneuf-du-Pape vineyard.

The vines of Maucoil are between 20 and 120 years old, stretching across three different terroirs found in the region. Every year, their quality is endorsed by the finest wine tasters.

The Castle Maucoil is located in the Southern valley of the Rhône. Wines are produced there: Châteauneuf-du-Pape, A.O.C. Côtes du Rhône and a local wine of Vaucluse. The exploitation is constituted by 30 hectares of A.O.C. Châteauneuf-du-Pape, 5 hectares of A.O.C. Côtes du Rhône and 8 hectares of local wine of Vaucluse.

All Château Maucoil’s wines are made by the traditional way, with fermentation in vats for three weeks, which allows the musts to acquire the tannin that makes for good ageing and to extract as many aromas as possible.
