|Medium - Full Bodied|
Only a select few vineyards use all 13 grape varieties permitted by this appellation, so we’re pleased to introduce this unique Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée 13 – a truly special wine.
Châteauneuf-du-Pape is often held as one of the finest and most famous appellations of the Rhone Valley region, and it commands a deep respect throughout the world of French wine. Typically graced with a full body, pleasant medium tannins and a low acidity, it features an intense and complex character that’ll leave you enchanted. With a Châteauneuf-du-Pape, you’ll enjoy flavours such as pepper, liquorice and leather, accented with red fruit – each of which bring personality to this deep and complex wine.
As with many full-bodied red wines, game and red meats are a match made in heaven. Rib eye steaks, seasoned simply and served with crispy potatoes, are sure to impress, and will complement the wine perfectly. Alternatively, duck makes a great partner for this wine – try it with plenty of seasonal vegetables and lashings of meat juice gravy.
For a vegetarian option, we recommend trying a stew that’s big on flavour and chock full of hearty ingredients. A vegetarian cassoulet or a tomato based bean casserole – possibly supported by mushrooms – would certainly go down a treat.
