This Chateauneuf-du-Pape is perfectly pitched between richness and freshness, robustness and femininity, velvet and minerality.
Food Pairing Suggestion: Liqueur-like berry flavors, bright, sweet and as clear as the sound of a bell. Underneath, there’s a vein of leather and oolong tea, evidence of the ten percent mourvèdre in the blend, grown in the sandy soils of Pignan. It’s Châteauneuf played at full volume, needing time in the cellar.
Food Pairing Suggestion: Steak, roasted leg of lamp
Grape Varieties: Grenache noir, Mourvèdre
