Chateauneuf-du-Pape la Bernadine Michel Chapoutier 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

A deep colour with an immediately attractive nose of blackcurrant and plumfollowed by an encyclopaedic array of flavours which include coffee, cinnamon,licorice and morello cherry. En bouche the wine is rich and suitably complex,with classic Provencal herbs, black fruits and hints of mint all vying forattention. The tannins are beautifully integrated already and the wine willdrink nicely with most red meat and game." <br/>(Simon Field, MW, BBR Buyer)

M. Chapoutier:
The name CHAPOUTIER is present in the Rhône Valley since 1808. In 1879, the distant ancestor Polydor CHAPOUTIER was the first to begin to buy vines, thus moving from the status of wine-grower of an estate to that of a viticulturist, a wine producer and a businessman. The pioneering spirit was already present in the family.
