LES VINS SKALLI, Châteauneuf-du-Pape Rouge BOUACHON Dédication 2006

LES VINS SKALLI, Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Dédication 2006

Trough Dedication,  Maison Bouachon pays tribute to the splendour of this unique and renowned terroir, the « Châteauneuf du Pape”. An exceptional vintage to mark a special tribute to our roots, to our ancestors, to our past, to this know-how passed on from generation to generation, to that love and those high standards that have become part and parcel of family values.  We are dedicating this vintage to the rigorous work of men who nurture with such extreme care what our land is best able to provide.  DEDICATION by the “Maison Bouachon”: for a precious wine, rare and unique, with a name denoting a grand vintage for safekeeping within the respect of its origins.  An elixir providing us with pleasure to savour today and letting us imagine its great potential of tomorrow (characteristic of a vintage wine).

Style of the wine : This vintage expresses the quintessence of the “Maison Bouachon”: subtle with an intensely rich bouquet, combining traditional grape varieties with the bouquet and flavours of fruit, typical to the Rhône Valley. In the pure Châteauneuf du Pape style with its grenache wine taste, it unveils a superb full-bodied texture with a tremendous personality.

TASTING NOTES

Deep garnet-red color with violet tints. Intense notes of cocoa and cherry aromas dominate the wine. This wine is layered with nuances of vanilla, white pepper, and fresh berry. On the palate, the wine is full and robust with silky tannins.
Plum and black cherry combine with warm spices to create a remarkable finish to this rich and multifaceted wine. Ever-present cocoa notes, with a mineral touch, mingle with mint aromas to give a great freshness to this wine. Its delicate complexity and lusciousness is balanced by a fruity roundness. A very ample wine with an aromatic strength for the second vintage of this micro-cuvée.
