Elisabeth Chambellan Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes 2007
The Châteauneuf-du-Pape Elisabeth Chambellan is an elegant and full-bodied wine, with a beautiful ruby colour. It is the product of a selection of old vines, of which certain are one hundred years old, giving a wine of great quality. The ageing in large oak barrels (which can last for more than 18 months), gives it a perfect balance between the body and the structured and concentrated tannins, with hints of redcurrants and strawberries and liquorice on the finish, the ensemble being a wine which is both fine, silky and powerful. This cuvée is the product of our oldest vines. The wines are powerful and therefore need to be aged in large oak barrels for longer than our traditional cuvée. The wines require several years ageing in bottle in order to open out and give the best of themselves.
RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
