Food Pairings for Châteauneuf du Pape
Chateauneuf du Pape, 2008, Appellation Chateauneuf du Pape Controlee, France Price $15 per bottle The wine was good, but I was expecting more. The color and clarity were great. The wine had a nice aroma, smooth taste with some hints of cherry. There was a little acid that when well to the spaghetti we had for dinner. After drinking the wine, I did some research and found the 2008 was not the best year for this wine, I should have bought a 2007. Maybe next time.
I'd have to say the best I've tasted to date. I enjoyed it, really enjoyed it.
wonderful wine, full body, well balanced, great finish. Never disappoints. Exceptional at twice the price.
Excellent red from France, I have it last night dinner whit a delicious duck, and red cabbage. Currently I am in France and I was lucky and find a last 14 bottles in a small family ecofarm shop in Menge. match perfectly for me whit any red meat and game.
A full body wine with a nice and clear notes of black currant. I tried it with a mushroom risotto and I wasn't impressed but I think it could be a perfect match with a stew or chilean cacerole (specially from the south of Chile)
External Reviews for Châteauneuf du Pape
There were no problems with the opaque ruby/purple-tinged 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape, which had just been bottled. This exotic red boasts notes of black truffles, roasted meats, charcuterie, incense, blackberries and black cherry liqueur intermixed with hints of roasted herbs and licorice. Full-bodied, dense and as concentrated as the estate’s extraordinary 2007, the spectacular 2010 needs 2–4 years of cellaring, and will age gracefully over the following two decades.
Bright ruby-red. Sexy, spice-accented aromas of red berry preserves and potpourri, with a hint of spicecake in the background. Lively and precise on the palate, offering sweet red berry flavors that become richer and deeper with air. Silky tannins add shape to the very long, focused, floral-dominated finish. Shows a lot of sex appeal now but this densely packed, balanced wine is built to age.
A candidate for wine of the vintage, the 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape (a tank-aged blend of 90% Grenache and the rest Mourvedre, Syrah and Cinsault from 80+ year old vines) is a naked expression of Chateauneuf du Pape that is pure fruit and complexity. Its dense purple color is followed by aromas of melted licorice, charcuterie, Provencal herbs, black currants, roasted meat, plum sauce, seaweed and licorice. It is incredibly complex in both the aromatics and on the palate, full-bodied and super-rich with sweet tannin and low acidity. Enjoy it over the next 15+ years.
Bright ruby. A floral-accented, complex bouquet displays candied raspberry, cherry compote and spice cake, with a hint of anise in the background. Fleshy and sweet, offering deep red fruit flavors that gain power with air. A smoky note comes up on the spicy, gently sweet very long finish.
Schönes Ziegelrot. Bezaubert mit Noten von roten Früchten und Lakritzen, Leder und Gewürzen. Im Gaumen feines Tannin, wiederum vielschichtige Aromatik, angenehm kräftig mit schönem Abgang.
Dunkles Rubinrot; rote und schwarze Früchte, würzig; imposant geformt, geschmeidiger, ausgewogener Mittelteil mit einem frischen Kern und eleganten Tanninen.
A Proprietary Blend wine from Rhone in France. 2004 Clos Saint-Jean Chateauneuf du Pape 750ml
