Le Nez des Papes
Wine cellar and wine tasting at Châteauneuf-du-Pape


Our cellar is located in the heart of Châteauneuf du Pape, famous for its wines, and close to the (Roman) Church of the village.

Located at 2, rue de l'Eglise, we welcome you in our cellar where we sell and offer tasting of wines.

We will allow you to discover our selection of wines of wine growers who love their work and their soils. We focus on these winemakers, on these craftsmen who over the years have made the reputation of the wines of the AOC Châteauneuf du Pape.

The wine is the fruit of this meeting between the sky, the earth and men. It is the work of the latter that fascinates us and that we wish to put forward by being their ambassadors. We focus on these men and women who for generations have worked to improve the quality of the wines of their domains and of the AOC. These are the small stories that make up the great history of Châteauneuf du Pape that we will share with you.

Marlène CAZET


I was born in Avignon, the capital of Côtes du Rhône region, which is also famous for the Pope’s Palace. I was lucky enough to grow up near the beautiful vineyards of Chateauneuf du Pape, which are world known for the quality of their wines. When I was a student, I used to do the harvest every year. I worked for famous domains such as Le domaine du Vieux Télégraphe, Le domaine du Vieux Donjon, and Le domaine Saint Benoit. It was at this time that I fell under the spell of the Castel Papal vineyards. Since then, my passion for wine continue growing. After completing a Masters in Political Science, I spent 2 years working in Finance in Ireland and 4 years as Finance Director in an NGO in Paris. After that, I decided to take the plunge and embark on a career in the wine industry in order to pursue profession I was passionate about. My taste for travelling led me to choose an international school, the WSET (Wine Spirit Education and Trust), a school recognized worldwide for the quality of its wine training. I passed the levels 1 and 2 in 2013.

Afterwards, I worked for a famous estate in the "Luberon" (Chateau Val Joanis) as a manager of the cellar and wine tourism activities. In 2014 I created my own company "Le NEZ DES PAPES" (Provence and Wine) which organizes events around wine, including wine tours. To further perfect my knowledge, I also passed the WSET level 3 in 2016. In 2019, I expanded my business and set up a tasting space in an old historical cellar in the village of Châteauneuf du Pape, where tasting workshops and wine sales are offered. I have the pleasure and privilege to welcome clients from all over the world wanting to discover the famous vineyards of Châteauneuf du Pape, and with whom I can share my knowledge and passion for wine.

In 2023, I successfully passed the level 4 of the famous WSET School (Wine Spririt Education and Trust). I now hold the most expert level graduation, the "Diploma" (WSET4).

Where does your passion for wine come from?

I come from a family of "bon vivants", eating and drinking well are part of my DNA. In our house, no good meal was served without wine and I learned to taste it, discover it and appreciate it. For me, wine represents moments of conviviality and shared happiness. I find the wine business fascinating and artistic. I can't tell you how many times I've lingered in a wine shop while buying a bottle of wine because the discussions were so rich and interesting. Going into the wine business was a dream for a long time until I decided to go for it.

What is your background?

I have a degree in international trade and then I went into the hotel business for about ten years. I like jobs where I can be in contact with people. It took me a while to make my conversion, but in 2022 I decided to attend the Franck Thomas School to obtain a sommelier diploma. My experience in the hotel industry allowed me to meet wine professionals and these meetings supported my decision. I wanted to pursue profession driven by passion, pleasure and exchange of knowledge and know-how. What is exciting and stimulating about wine is that you learn every day.

Tell us about the wines of CDP

It's magical to discover the wines of Châteauneuf du Pape. The different types of soil give the terroir its incredible richness. The various methods of maturation and vinification, the choice of blending or mono-varietal offer wines of various styles, yet with a real identity. These are wines that can combine both power and elegance. And when you have the chance to meet and talk with the winemakers who produce them, you appreciate and understand their wines even more.

Tell us about your activities at the cellar ?

I met Romain when I was searching for an internship, and I was immediately excited about his project at the cellar. It is an appellation cellar, we are ambassadors of Châteauneuf du Pape. What he wanted to do was to allow people discover the wines of the appellation through playful workshops alowing to understand the wine and its terroir. And that's what I like! We don't limit ourselves to sales advice, we also do on-site tastings and wine tours.
