Excellent vintage, southern Rhône red from an award winning Châteauneuf winemaker. Indeed, the cellar is in this famous appellation, and the vineyards for this red are just next door. Super ripe and luscious Grenache, it’s all juicy fruit and spice.
"Medium bodied, fruity and fresh - a tasty, easy going red with lots of ripe blackberry appeal"
Jehan Sacaze Buyer for the Rhône
With Gold medals galore, Thierry Ferlay has made wine all over the world but remains fondest of the warm, ripe reds of the southern Rhône. He also adores their chief grape, Grenache, the most important grape in Châteauneuf du Pape. In fact he’s in charge of winemaking at this renowned appellation’s only co-operative winery, where all the growers are part-owners of the enterprise. Naturally, maximising quality is at the forefront of their minds, which explains this wine’s exceptional flavour and value. Made purely from Grenache, it has irresistible raspberry fruit, hints of spice and a peppery edge. Enjoy with ratatouille, lamb chops and homemade burgers. And because it’s so smooth and not too heavy, it’s ideal sipping on its own, too.
