Food Pairings for Domaine de Cristia Collection Cairanne
Cork closure, 15%abv Was a bit concerned on opening of the bottle as there seemed to be a sweaty smell coming from the bottle......Then I realized the dog was sitting next to me. Colour- Clear Medium red with a brick or tawny hue Nose- (with the dog outside) clean light/medium, developing Still quite fruit forward Mild beautiful candied violets with plum/raspberry and pencil shavings, some white pepper. Palate- dry medium + acidity medium tannin medium- body Good fruit follow through, some acid with a good length. Conclusion- very good quality especially for the price, drink now as it seems to be at a fantastic point in it's life or keep it but I don't think any more than 2 extra years ( given I am tasting this at the end of 2013). This is a cracker of a wine that I'd happily purchase again, given the chance. I think for me this is a wine to have with a cheese board, a goulash or any big hearty meaty dish.
