Power and longevity

Châteauneuf-du-Pape reds are intense purple in their early years, turning ruby in their prime, displaying admirable complexity. They reveal a broad aromatic palette: ripe fruits, blackcurrant, blackberries, spices, roasting, licorice, prunes, leather…
While they can be enjoyed in their youth – from around two years old – where they develop elegant fruit aromas, they also assert themselves over the long term, revealing a more substantial tannic structure, intense and deep bouquets, and notes of undergrowth. Each individual will appreciate Châteauneuf-du-Pape red wines at different degrees of maturity. They easily age over several decades.
They traditionally pair well with red meats, lamb, or traditional game. They also reveal their personality alongside Asian cuisines that emphasize spices.

Serving temperature: around 15°C for younger ones and 17°C for older vintages.
