Château Saint Roch
Châteauneuf-du-Pape - Red
Aromatic and full-bodied
A nose on aromas of red fruits. A very balanced palate with very gourmet nuances. Pleasure without further waiting!
Nose : Some delicious notes of black fruit, jammy, cherry, kirsch and liquorice, then spice and pepper dominate.
Palate : Ample and generous, with some dense and velvety tannins. Fruit-driven and supple, this wine is a very good start for those who are not familiar with Châteauneuf du Pape wines.
Advice from the sommelier : Best served at 17-18°C. To be paired with Provencal Beef stew (« Daube provençale ») !
Grape varieties : 40% Grenache 30% Syrah 30% Mourvèdre
Harvest : 100% hand harvest with thorough sorting upon arrival at the winery.
Terroir : Age of the vines: 40 years Yield: 28 hl/ha Deep stony soils consisting mainly of rolled quartz and sandy red clay.
Winemaking : Destemming of the grapes. Alcoholic fermentation in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats with regular “pigeage” (punching down). Malolactic fermentation. Ageing in vats and barrels during 12 months (no new oak).
Potential of ageing : Generous and easily approachable, ready to drink but can keep 8 to 10 years.
