This is proper, traditional Châteauneuf-du-Pape made from a blend of 65% Grenache, 20% Mourvedre, 15% Syrah. Serious and brooding, it benefits from a little time to breathe and open up. The palate is complex with herby, tapenade flavours and ripe textured tannins balancing the significant 15% alcohol which is expertly managed and integrated. Try with traditional roast lamb, lentil and vegetable moussaka and any rich hot-pot that heavily features aromatic ‘herbes de Provence’.
