Domaine Juliette Avril Chateauneuf du Pape 75cl
Superb dark ruby red colour with garnet highlights.
First impressions - 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 and smoked meats on a background of vanilla.
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.
This popular Rhone wine is made predominantly from grenache grapes, giving intense, robust spicy flavours and a long peppery finish.
FOOD MATCH: Grilled duck, dishes served with sauces, well-matured cheeses
