Chateauneuf-du-Pape - delicious red wine, which is considered to be the king of French wines. The wine is made from a blend of traditional grape varieties Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre and Senso assembled from 50-year-old vines. Harvesting takes place by hand, with selective sorting of grapes. Traditional wort passes for a long period of fermentation mash (approximately 25-28 days) at a relatively high temperature for a better extraction of tannins and pigments. Extract of wine for 14-18 months is carried out in large oak casks (FUDR) and stainless steel vats.
Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2011 has wealth, complexity, super concentration, as well as a large storage capacity - more than 20 years. This wine deserves further aging in the cellar for a few years before drinking, but if you decide to open it now, decanting is recommended for a more complete disclosure of the bouquet.
