Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Rhone Valley
Grenache, Mourvedre, Syrah
Domaine Grand Veneur, Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Rhone Valley, France, 1500ml
This wine boasts an inky/purple colour in addition to a gorgeous perfume of crushed rocks, jammy black fruits, charcoal and graphite. The palate holds excellent fruit character and has a great kick. The tannins are round and the finish is long with mint and dark fruit notes. It is all very much together and harmonious, and has great ageing potential. An outstanding Chateauneuf du Pape expressing the quintessence of its terroir. Pairs well with venison, duck, braised lamb or strong cheese.
