Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Château de Vaudieu, Tradition red 2015, 2016, 2017
A red wine representing the classic characteristics of this wine estate
Grape variety: Black Grenache 81%, Syrah 19%
Sandy and red sandstone
After waiting for the optimum ripeness, the grapes were harvested manually between September 13th and September 28th, 2016
The grapes are de-stemmed and crushed and put into stainless steel tanks for alcoholic fermentation at a constant temperature of 25°C. The maceration process takes approximately 30 days.
Syrah and part of the Grenache are aged for 12 months in old oak barrels.
A robust ruby colour. The nose reveals a subtle blend of strawberry jam and cocoa bean, notes of white pepper follow. In the mouth the attack is fresh thanks to a fine concentration of menthol tannins, which evolves towards graphite.
Perfect with leg of lamb and creamy potatoes or roasted suckling pig
To be drunk straight away or over the next 20 years at 16°C
