Châteauneuf de Pape, Domaine Font Michelle, Southern Rhône, 2016
75% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre mautured in large oak barrels.
From a excellent vintage in the Rhône. Dark and savoury fruit flavours dominate the palate, so typical of the syrah-based wines of the northern Rhône. There is warmth, black pepper and some subtle sweet spice too. Rich, blackcurrant overtones and a firm, but warming finish. Delicious with red meats and game.
