Red 2016
Superb dark ruby red colour with garnet highlights.
First nose, first impression: we are certainly in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, and nowhere else. Still young, the fruit of the grape vine is present, although tertiary aromas quickly reveal themselves; hints of truffle, garrigue, smoked meats on a background of vanilla, and with a mentholated finish.
The wine is very racy; the Grenache tends to evoke Pinot noir deftly adding elegance to power. The tannins are supple and velvety. Although young, it delivers true pleasure; use wide-mouthed glasses for maximum aeration, which will give the wine even greater volume.

Accompaniment
Grilled duck, dishes served with sauces, well-matured cheeses…serving temperature 18-19 °C
