Domaine de Cristia Côtes du Rhône 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

100% Grenache from 50 year old vines. Beautiful bright garnet red. Intense nose showing good complexity. Aromas of black fruits and wild herbs prevail. Good attack on the palate. A fine wine which is elegant and well structured. Good volume and length based on fruity and spicy aromas. Pair with: grilled lamb with thyme, côte de boeuf, cheeses of the south, tarte tatin with onions.

RED WINES The grapes are selected in the vineyard, then destemmed before being put into vats. Three weeks of fermentation and maceration in concrete vats follow, with the use of indigenous yeasts. Temperatures are kept low in order to produce aromatic wines. We do not insist on any massive extraction, but prefer the ‘matiere’ to express itself. (Due to the way we work in the vineyards, the grapes possess enough concentration). The pressed juice and free-run juice are blended together according to the vintage. Châteauneuf-du-Pape wines are aged in concrete vats and barrels for 18 months. Côtes-du-Rhône and Vin de Pays are aged only in concrete vats for 8 to 12 months. WHITE WINES The grapes are selected and pressed very quickly. They are fermented and aged for 8 months in a combination of barrels and stainless steel vats. Read less

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. It should continue to shine over the coming 8-10 years. Rhone Report The.
