Christophe De Courten's
mother Aline Courten run for a
number of years her property Domaine
Le Vieux Calcernier. In 2014 she decided
to let her two sons Christophe and William split the 10 ha of Chateauneuf du
Pape belonging to her domain.
(The word "Comte" is not a name, but
a nickname according to Swiss
tradition for the eldest son.)
Christophe's father descended from an
Italian family, who in the late Middle
Ages was the Pope's envoy in
Christophe, makes his wines in the renovated cellars at 13, Chemin
du Bois de la Ville, where his mother's
wines were made. First vintage was 2015.
