A blend of 90% Grenache and 10% Syrah that s aged all in tank the 2009 Domaine de Cristia Chbteauneuf-du-Pape is an outstanding wine that has an upfront round fleshy profile as well as plenty of southern Rhtne typicity. Showing loads of concentrated ripe blackberry spice herbs de Provence and subtle tar and chocolate aromas and flavors this medium to full-bodied wine possesses a supple feel good freshness and plenty of length on the finish.
