Châteauneuf-du-Pape Saint-Georges 2016 - Domaine Galèvan
The Châteauneuf-du-Pape Saint-Georges is a superlative of the regular Châteauneuf-du-Pape and it is already so delicious. The difference is that this one is made from 100% organic Grenache Noir from vines that are close to 100 years old. The chalky clay with rolling stones gives a small yield but it is then deeply concentrated in flavour. The grapes are stripped of all stalks and ferment in concrete cuves. The Châteauneuf-du-Pape Saint-Georges matures for 24 months in new oak 500-litre barrels and is then bottled unfiltered. Fine ruby red glass with a delicate nose with nice ripe red fruit and some balsamic. On the palate, a super powerful wine with strawberry, raspberry, toast, a hint of menthol and cedar. Fantastically long finish and so very nice to drink like this at 16-18 degrees. Delicious with venison meat, a truffle omelette, pâté with prunes, risotto with mushrooms or something with very dark chocolate.
