Château Saint Nabor Côtes du Rhône 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Intense garnet-red color with bright ruby tints. Ripe red fruits, plums and blackberries dominate the aromas and flavors. In the elegant and delicate taste we discover red fruit aromas with a spicy nuance that is typically created by the Syrah. The moderate alcohol creates a smooth, well-structured wine.

Established in the Southern Rhone Valley, the Chateau Saint Nabor is a family winery run for five generations by the Castor family. The vineyard has been developed since the early seventies, and is now 137 hectares (340 acres). Engaged in a philosophy of environmental respect, we reduce the amount of chemical treatments and use the best methods to increase their efficiency (quality material, right dosage, decisions based on weather and aspect of the vines). We use to say “A good wine is made from good grapes; a fabulous wine is made from fabulous grapes”. Composed of 65% red grape varieties with a majority of Grenache and Syrah, and 35% white grape varieties with a majority of Chardonnay, the vineyard is full of diversity; soils, exposition, age and training of the vine. Here the notion of “Terroir” becomes real. This notion “Terroir” is complete in the cellar with the hands and the taste of the winemaker. We focus on the best quality and to reach this we use the best materials; high quality machine harvester that is well-adapted on each vineyard, membrane press, tanks fully temperature controlled … In addition, each grape is specifically vinified with selected yeast. Every day the wines are tasted by the winemaker to ensure the finest process of the vinification. Our production is about one million bottles a year (around 83 000 cases), 50% are red wines, 35% roses and 15% whites; regarding that, half of them are classified in the AOC (Appellation d’Origine Controlee – Controlled Appellation). Our ranges of wines are diverse, you can find light and fresh “Summer Rose”, well balanced Chardonnay with tropical aromas, medium bodied and fruity Cotes du Rhone red to well developed oak barrel aged Cotes du Rhone Villages red, etc… In the respect of our tradition, we offer you fine and unique Chateau wines that you can discover and enjoy with us in the 11th century chapel tasting room.

Great wine for very low price! Dressed in intense ruby red robe with deep purple nuances, this wine offers aromas of black fruits with a range of spicy notes, kirsch liqueur and resiny pine forest notes are present in this elegant, mellow wine. The attack is soft with a dominance of black currant, liquorices and black pepper with dense tannins which gives the wine a great evolution. The finish is long and full bodied.
