Châteauneuf du Pape is the most famous red of the southern Rhône, adored for its big spice and warm, raisiny fruit. Yields were seriously down, by 30%, in 2014, but the grapes that were harvested were very fruity and nicely concentrated. Le Prince de Courthézon is made at Châteauneuf's only co-operative winery by award winning winemaker Thierry Ferlay. All the grape growers are part-owners, so maximising quality is uppermost for them, which explains this wine's impressive, medal winning success. With grapes sourced from ancient, low yielding vines across the region, you not only get lovely intensity but complexity too. Mostly Grenache, with Syrah and Mourvèdre adding colour and aromatic nuances. Serve with a hearty casserole or roast lamb.
