Description

Our rock star GSM this month is  Grenache(88%), Syrah (10%), Mouvedre (2%) cuvée made from old vines located on the “Plateau de la Crau” which are among the best terroirs of Grenache.  Terrior of rolled-pebbles in vineyards dated from 1906. Hand harvested, strict sorting of the grapes takes place in the vineyard. Light crushing and destemming –  Ageing in oak casks (“foudre”) and French oak gives way to a  powerful (16% abv) and voluptuous wine. Deep ruby red color with dark purple highlights blessed  this CHÂTEAUNEUF-DU-PAPE  with velvety tannins and ripe black fruit with a silky finish.  This is a very age-worthy wine but can also be enjoyed now.   Fun Fact: This iconic embossed bottle symbolizes a papal tiara placed above the keys of St. Peter with the inscription “Châteauneuf-du-Pape contrôlé” written in Gothic letters around this emblem.  Pairs well with most red meats, and rich stews.
