Chateauneuf-Dupape Remy Ferbas 2006

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought two bottles of this wine for £27 from the website www.bidforwine.co.uk/auctions/show/128961.Chateauneuf-du-Pape was one of the first appellations founded when that system was first set up in the early 1930's.It is for red and white wines [though 95% are red] from four communes around the village of that name in the Avignon/Orange area of the southern Rhone valley where it is the most prestigious appellation.Chateauneuf-du-Pape roughly translates as 'the Pope's new palace' because in the 14th century Pope John 22nd built himself a new home,now derelict but a tourist attraction,and also took a great interest in the viticulture of the area.My bottle is from a small negociant house and consists of 70% grenache,20%syrah and 10% mourverde.I started the first bottle last night with my supper of meat pie.There is some cherry and bramble style fruit but the overiding impresion is how dry and austere it is.I have had better southern Rhone wines than this and for less money although it did go well with the pie. However it did get a gold medal at the 2007 Foire aux vins d'Orange wine competition
