Chateauneuf du Pape Closerie de Vaudieu 2016
Châteauneuf du Pâpe is the go-to wine for people looking for flavour, body, alcohol – and in this case style. Deep ruby red in colour, lively berry fruits on the nose, with a touch of liquorice and a hint of black pepper. On the palate, it is full-bodied and the ripe tannins gently support the cherry, cassis and herb character on the finish. Grenache is the main grape used in the blend, with a smaller proportion of Syrah and Mourvèdre.
Any meaty, or rich tomato-ey dish goes well with this wine, and a hunk of high quality Cheddar such as Montgomery (from Teddington Cheese).
The name Vaudieu originated from ‘Vallée de Dieu’ (Valley of God), a reference to the beauty of the area. The Château is a splendid 18th century property, once owned by the négociant Gabriel Meffre, and now run by his grandson, Laurent Bréchet who has transformed the estate through substantial investment and an obsession with quality.
