Chateauneuf du Pape, La Bernardine, M. Chapoutier 2015
Châteauneuf du Pape, La Bernardine, M. Chapoutier 2015
Mainly Grenache, with a splash of Syrah and Mourvedre, mostly aged in concrete vats.
A deep purple colour. On the nose, it's complex and subtle with blackcurrant, plum notes followed by roasted coffee, cinnamon, cherry, Morello cherry and liquorice. On the Palate, you get spices and liquorice with black fruit flavours.
“A blend of 60% Grenache, 25% Syrah and 15% other varieties, the 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape la Bernardine is made in an approachable, charming style. Sandalwood and dried spices mark the nose, while the medium to full bodied palate features supple tannins and plenty of ripe black cherry fruit." 90/100 Joe Czerwinski, the wine advocate.
Why not try with Tuna fish Carpaccio? Or marinated beef, leg of lamb, braised short ribs or cheeses?
