Chateaunef-du-Pape, Cuvée du Vatican, Chateau Sixtine
France – dry – Classic Cuvée Chateaunef-du-Pape from Grenache, Syrah, Maurveder and Cinsault varieties. The wine is rich, intense and structured with a deep purple colour. The aroma is dominated by elderflower, raspberry, spices and floral notes. On the palate it is medium-bodied, savoury and juicy with firm tannins and a light earthiness. The wine is fermented in stainless-steel tanks and then aged for up to 30 months in oak barrels. Full-bodied and high in tannins, this wine is an excellent match for red meats such as beef, lamb and game, but thanks to its Syrah content, it also pairs well with spicy foods.
