Château Maucoil’s vineyards are located in the northwest of the Châteauneuf-du-Pape area (on the left bank of the River Rhône) on the appellation’s four soil types: pebbles, clay-sandstone, Urgonian limestone and, more unusually, sand. Unlike the famous pebbles of the area, sand doesn’t retain and transfer heat during the night, resulting in slower ripening and more finesse. The youngest vines average 40 years old, so roots run deep to sustain the vines during the hot summer months. For the Tradition Rouge, four main grape varieties are selected solely from sandy soils - Grenache Noir, Syrah, Mourvèdre and Cinsault.

Made from organically-grown grapes, this very deeply-coloured red offers aromas of blackberries, dried fruit and dark roast coffee on the nose. Typically lifted and fresh despite its full body and intense colour, the palate has plush berry fruit, subtle savoury spice, and smooth, ripe tannins with a very long finish.
