Food Pairings for Cellier des Princes Chateauneuf du Pape
I cannot pretend to be anything more than an enthusiastic amateur when it comes to tasting wine, but that often means I'm more critical when it comes to selecting favourites. I discovered this delicious, robust creation almost a year ago and it has remained my most enjoyed tipple ever since. It needs to be suitably warmed and aired (as all good reds should), but the wait is well worth it. The first hit is the explosion of blackberries, black cherries and dark chocolate, which is never followed by the bitter tannins; rather softening with the lingering sweetness of forest fruits. This wine certainly won't do to be quoffed-at 15% ABV, you would need to be more than able to hold your liquor! But as an accompaniment to venison, spicy Indian food or as a warming winter treat you would need to go a long way to find a better example of this classic red.
<p>This deep red full-bodied yet sweet French wine is complex, with aromas of black fruits with spicy overtones. Created in 1924, the Cellier des Princes is the only cooperative cellar on the Chateauneuf du Pape area.</p>
