Châteauneuf du Pape Rouge ‘Ancien Pontifs’

£21.99

Good Châteauneuf is always a treat, and this fine and aromatic example embraces much of why the appellation achieves so much praise and respect. While there’s a good amount of dark, jammy fruit such as fig, cassis, blackberry and dark plum, there’s also a core of earthy, tarry notes so remind us that this originates from a warmer climate. Essences of smoke, violet, dried herbs and crunchy black pepper are also apparent, so you’ve got quite a complex wine here, and it’s certainly one that works better with hearty food such as roast meats or vegetable casseroles.
