CHÂTEAU DE LA GARDINE, Châteauneuf-du-Pape Rouge Cuvée Immortelle 2016

CHÂTEAU DE LA GARDINE, Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Cuvée Immortelle  2011 [copie]

CEPAGES

1/3 old vines Grenache, 1/3 Mourvèdre, 1/3 Syrah.

TERROIR

Soils:
- Alpine Diluvian large round stones (famously known as “galets roulés”)
- Urgonian limestones.
Age of the vines: 65+ years
Exposure: Mostly South-West Altitude: 40-100 meters

VINIFICATION

100% hand harvest into small baskets with thorough sorting of the grapes. The Syrah is harvested twice in order to obtain optimum ripeness, followed by Grenache and then Mourvèdre.
For this special cuvée, the grapes, of first choice, are vinified with the stems left on in a cone-shaped oak vat. Apart from manual pigeage, very little intervention takes place during vinification. The wne then ages 12 to 16 months in vats.

TASTING NOTES

Colour: Deep garnet with a violet rim.
Nose: Open and generous, bursting with red and black fruit (cherry, blackberry), exotic spice.
Palate: There are not enough superlatives to describe this wine: Intense, powerful, expressive and complex, with an extremely long and fresh finish. The tannins are pure silk.

SERVICE

Best served at 18°C.

GARDE

When drunk young, best decanted 4 hours before serving. With 10 years bottle ageing, best decanted 1 to 2 hours before serving. Above this, you should let the impetuosity and generosity still alive express themselves straight out of the cork.

ACCORDS

The finest and most delicate meat cuts: Wagyu beef, Châteaubriand, Angus Beef, saddle of lamb…
Game: Hare, pheasant, grouse, venison, guinea fowl, pigeon and more.
Dark chocolate.
