Mouthfilling, rich, ripe fruit. Fresh with fine tannins and warm spice
Fragrant, red berry fruit, spice with a mineral edge
Châteauneuf-du-Pape is the most famous red of the southern Rhône, adored for its big spice and warm, ripe, velvety fruit. That’s particularly true in 2019, the wines of which show a delicious plumpness, yet still with an edge of freshness. Le Prince de Courthézon is made at Châteauneuf’s only co-operative winery by award winning Thierry Ferlay. All the grape growers are part owners, so maximising quality is uppermost for them. They work with ancient, low yielding vines across the region to deliver not only a lovely intensity but complexity too. It explains this wine’s impressive, medal winning record. Mostly Grenache, with Syrah and Mourvèdre adding colour and aromatic nuances. Decant early and serve with a hearty casserole or roast lamb.
"So smooth. How can you describe the very best red there is?"
