Available for:
Powerful and well-constituted wine, a strong ruby colour with a purple tinge. It gives a complex nose of cinnamon, cooked fruits and morello cherry. After a rich and firm attack, the mouth expresses vanilla and pepery aromas which persist to the final. It's a supple and rich wine with a very good length in mouth. The dominant grenache assure the « typicité CHATEAUNEUF DU PAPE ». Pair with filets of red mullet in basil with baby vegetables sautéed in olive oil, Noisettes of lamb in parsley spelt with dried fruit and thyme sauce, Salmis of duck…..

The 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape Roc-Epine is a sappy, juicy, vibrant effort that has a terrific floral character in its red and black fruits, ground pepper, and sappy garrigue-like aromas and flavors. With medium to full body, polished tannins, no hard edges, and flawless balance, it's a beautiful 2017 that makes the most of the vintage. It's well worth seeking out. The blend is 80% Grenache and 10% each of Mourvèdre and Syrah, brought up in 10% new oak.
