Châteauneuf-du-Pape (France)

Châteauneuf-du-Pape is a very famous French red wine with a complex taste. It is a blend of many grape varieties, but the three dominant ones are Grenache (70%), Syrah, and Mourvèdre.

A French pope is a part of history of the wine. In 1308, Pope Clement V, former Archbishop of Bordeaux, relocated the papacy to the town of Avignon, and Châteauneuf-du-Pape means "The Pope's new castle".
