Chateau Husson

Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Southern Rhône, France

Jean-Pierre Hugues owned the estate until 2015

Château Husson is located on the eastern slope of the Châteauneuf-du-Pape appellation, in the town of Courthézon. The estate is fortunate to have old vines with deep root systems that can draw cool moisture during periods of hot, dry weather.

Grenache is the primary grape variety used in the red wines. Grenache contributes balance and structured, with heavenly aromas of liquorice and spices. Mourvèdre and Syrah contribute colour and acidity, and further aromatic notes of violet, small red fruit, leather and smoke.

Whites are also primarily made from Grenache Blanc which gives elegance, Clairette and Bourboulenc contribute freshness, minerality and slightly saline notes.
