This wine comes from the very rocky Serres vineyard in Châteauneuf du Pape. The rocky soil produces wines of great depth and intensity. This wine is dense, peppery, and full of blackberry, licorice, and black cherry flavors. Ripe, supple, tannins balance the wine, making it ideal for grilled meats, and daube Provençale.
It offers a ripe, sexy style as well as complex notes of ripe red and black currants, graphite, melted licorice, and incense. With ripe tannins and a layered, elegant texture, it’s a terrific example of the style of the vintage and will keep for 10-15 years.
