Châteauneuf-du-Pape Saint-Georges 2016 - Domaine Galèvan
The Châteauneuf-du-Pape Saint-Georges is a superior version of the regular Châteauneuf-du-Pape, which is already so delicious. The difference is that this one is made of 100% organic Grenache Noir from vines that are almost 100 years old. The chalky clay with cobblestones give a small yield but the taste is deeply concentrated. The grapes are removed from their stems and fermented in concrete cuves. The Châteauneuf-du-Pape Saint-Georges matures for 24 months in new oak 500 liter barrels and is then bottled unfiltered. Beautiful ruby glass with a delicate nose with delicious ripe red fruit and some balsamic vinegar. In the mouth a super powerful wine with strawberry, raspberry, toast, a hint of menthol and cedar. Fantastic long aftertaste and therefore very nice to drink like this at 16-18 degrees. Delicious with venison, a truffle omelet, pâté with prunes, risotto with mushrooms or something with very dark chocolate.
