Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
A perfectly clean nose with an explosion of aromas: black fruit, exotic spices, roasted coffee and hints of cocoa. One can also distinguish some liquorice and violet flower that combine perfectly well. The wine is very generous. The tannins are there, silky and ample, ready for the palate but also promising a great future.
Vineyard Notes
In its current state, Chateau de la Gardine dates only back to 1947. However, the property has a much longer history in Chateauneuf du Pape dating all the way back to at least the early 1700’s. When the estate was purchased by the well-known Brunel family in 1947, the vineyards were in poor shape after years of neglect and World War 2. At the time, the property included 10 hectares of vines.
Production Notes
60% Grenache , 20% Mourvedre , 15% Syrah , and 5% Muscardin . The wine is aged in a combination of vats and barrels, on average this works out to 60% in vats, and 40% in barrel for close to 12 months.
Food Pairing Notes
Pairs perfectly with duck confit, quince & chestnuts mini pies.
