Robert Parker listed Clos des Papes as one of the Top 155 Producers in the World.

Alexandre farms organically, and by the end of 2023, the entire estate will be certified organic. “The vines are grown with the idea that nothing is taken for granted,” he says, “and that each new season is a challenge. Follow the rules dictated by nature, which is never its clone from one year to the next, but also by the desire to find methods that will make the vine evolve in an ever more complete environment.” True to his philosophy, each year’s winemaking adapts to its unique vintage, as Alexandre commits himself to further research and learning. For this 2018 offer, there was no malolactic fermentation as it was a warmer vintage. Only one cuvée was produced in 2018: Sous les Trous.

Alexandre was just 25 when he produced his first vintage in 2014. He has received a great deal of recognition for his one hectare garden. Alexandre Grimée is a producer to watch.

2017 Clos des Papes • Chateauneuf du Pape

He blends grapes from his different plots to co-ferment in large vats, after which he then re-blends in to large 20-55 hectoliter wooden foudres (casks) to mature for 15 months. New or small barrels are never used, “I like the oak to make an indirect impact – I only want tannins from the grape skins not even the pips and certainly not the stalks” says Avril. And though it may not be widely known, this domaine has been buying corks from the same producer in Portugal ever since 1926!

The wines are no doubt enticing, garnering great praise from many publications and critics such as Wine Spectator who awarded their 2005 vintage as “Wine of the Year”, stating that “in the Southern Rhône's recent trio of great vintages starting with 2003, no other Châteauneuf-du-Pape domaine has produced better wines than Clos des Papes”. But the accolades don’t stop there, as Robert Parker followed on to pronounce the 2007 vintage “the greatest Chateauneuf du Pape made since 1978 and 1990”.

We at Ginsberg+Chan are extremely proud to be the exclusive distributors of Clos des Papes, and with good volumes of both red and white back vintages too, we can ensure you a wide range of drinking windows for your cellar.

Date Wednesday, 17 July
Time 7:00PM - 10:00PM
Venue Pang's Kitchen (25 Yik Yam St, Happy Valley)
Pax / 9
Ticket / HK$980 per person

Please join us on July 17th for what will be a fun and casual dining experience at Pang's Kitchen, well known for its Michelin-star status despite the tiny dining room and homely Cantonese cooking. We will pair the traditional Cantonese cuisine with an interesting wine lineup from Paolo Bea.


Many of you might not know about wine from Umbria, but for those who dare to explore, this will be a new surprise. Just a hundred kilometres from Tuscany, wine from Umbria showcases a totally different expression of flavors - bold and structured, with dark fruit-driven reds. Paolo Bea produces wine, olives, fruit, vegetables, and wheat on only five hectares of land. Paolo Bea, now in his 90s, is also an advocate of non-interventional winemaking, and the grapes are farmed organically, with vineyard biodiversity encouraged. These are some of the most intriguing wines you will find in Italy, or anywhere in the world for that matter!
There are only 9 spots available, so this will be an intimate evening led by our wine specialist, Jordan Wong. We can't wait to share these incredible wines with you and see how they pair with Cantonese dishes from Pang's Kitchen. Cheers!

Date / Wednesday, 5 June
Time / 7PM
Venue / Dolos (G/F, 60 Staunton St, Central)
Ticket / HK$1,480 per person 

Please join us on the 5th of June for what will be an unforgettable dining experience.  Dolos’s own Chef Sean Yuen, recently awarded “rising star of the year” by the SCMP, has created a seasonal seven-course menu paired with a range of young and older vintage Domaine Comte Abbatucci wines from Corsica. 

Many of you are familiar with these incredibly vibrant and complex Corsican wines but for those who have not tried them yet – you will be in for a treat.  Abbatucci is considered one of the finest wines on the island having revived ancient grape varietals that are so uniquely suited to the Mediterranean climate and terroirs of the island.  The wines are in such demand in Europe and the UK that they are very difficult to find outside of some of the best restaurants and wine bars.  They are real “gastro” wines that complement food so well. 

There are only 18 spots available, so this will be an intimate evening led by our wine specialist, Jordan Wong. We can’t wait to share these incredible wines with you and see how they pair with Chef Yuen’s seasonal seven-course menu. Cheers!
