La Font du Loup is both a famous lieu-dit, within the commune of Courthézon, and the name of the natural spring (the fountain of the wolf) in the center of the estate. Legend has it that wolves from Mount Ventoux would stop to drink here. Acquired by the Melia family in 1942, today the grand-daughter of the founder, Anne-Charlotte and her husband Laurent oversee the estate and the winemaking. In 1308, Pope Clement V moved his papacy to Avignon, north of Châteauneuf's vineyards. The literal translation of Châteauneuf-du-Pape is "the Pope's new castle."

Lychee, citrus blossom, fresh flowers and hints of mint all give way nicely to a medium-bodied profile that carries lots of acidity and solid overall freshness. Nice minerality too.
