The AOC area for red wines, rosé wines and white wines is located in the southern section of the Rhône. It is classified as a cru (top appellation). As early as 1924, attempts were made to establish a separate designation of origin. At that time, the wine was still referred to somewhat disparagingly as "Châteauneuf-du-Pape des pauvres" (Châteauneuf-du-Pape of the poor people). It is ready to drink a little earlier than its "big brother", but also counts among the great French red wines. The vineyards cover a total of 2,750 hectares, of which about 1,250 hectares are planted with vines. These are located exclusively in the municipality of Gigondas at the foot of the Dentelles de Montmirail mountain range in the Vaucluse département.
