Food Pairings for Chapelle St. Theodoric Chateauneuf du Pape le Grand Pin
This is a Chateauneuf with some excellent acidity and spirited fruit. It was a great pairing with tonight's diner of loin lamb chops, potatoes, and cucumber salad. The dominant theme is cherry. It will bring elegance to a fine dinner with roasted meat or chicken. It's a great bottle!
95 points Jeb Dunnuck (Wine Advocate): Even more impressive and showing considerably better from bottle than barrel, the 2011 Chateauneuf-du-Pape Le Grand Pin is a thrilling blend of 100% Grenache, from sandy soils located next to Rayas, which spent 19 months in neutral, 600-liter demi-muids. More perfumed and elegant than the La Guigasse, with beautiful kirsch liqueur, blackberry, spice-box, sappy underbrush and flowers, this medium to full-bodied beauty has gorgeous fruit, solid mid-palate depth, and an elegant, ethereal texture that flows through the lengthy finish. A candidate for the wine of the vintage (along with the La Guigasse), this awesome Chateauneuf will be better in another year or two, and drink nicely through 2023. Drink 2015-2023. (Oct 2013)
