Description

Chateauneuf du Pape translates to ‘The Pope’s new castle’, so we are talking the home of nobility. Considered the top appellation of the Southern Rhône, where typically the wines are very rich, concentrated and brooding and for the long haul. The vineyards consist of large stones which heat up in the day and radiate that warmth back up into the vines at night, increasing ripening, resulting in an almost baked fruit component in their wines... in the uber hot vintages it can be overpowering. In Cellier des Dauphins 2017 (magnificent vintage in Southern Rhône) this important element is precisely balanced... with a contrasting vibrancy on the finish. It’s a superb example of Chateauneuf du Pape at a very friendly price... from a region where you can pay a serious premium for wines of this calibre.

No rush to drink and in fact would benefit from 7-10 years in quality cellar... but give it a 30-minute decant and it is very approachable in its youth. Go to the trouble of preparing a nice food experience to get the utmost out of this beautiful red.

Smells... Heady aromas of baked blueberries, black plums, roasted fennel and roasted strawberries with a dash of balsamic vinegar, heavenly.
Tastes... Roasted fruit flavours greet the senses initially but quickly move into red and black liquorice, a wild berry compote, with hints of black pepper and almost the crunch of cranberries. An exciting array of flavours that will satisfy those who love big and bold as well as those who like freshness at the same time. It’s an alluring combination. Made for stews or roasted red meats and roast vegetables.
