Philippine de Saint-Cyrille, Chateauneuf du Pape 2011

Philippine de Saint-Cyrille, Chateauneuf du Pape Grande Reserve, 2011. Côtes du Rhone, France. Red.

The wine of the Pope!  Silky smooth and soft, full of crowd-pleasing and powerful Grenache-driven minty spice and juiciness of strawberries and black currants, but never jammy or cloying. This is a meat lover's wine, especially those which are grilled!

    Review

    Chateauneuf-du-Pape is an historic town in France's southern Rhone Valley, famous for its full-bodied, spicy red wines (although it does also produce a small quantity of weighty, flavorful white).

    The name Chateauneuf-du-Pape means 'new castle of the Pope' and refers to the fact that nearby Avignon was chosen as the new home for the Pope's court in the early 14th century. The pope in question (Clement V) also gave his name to the ancient and equally prestigious Chateau Pape Clement in Bordeaux's Graves district.
