Food Pairings for Domaine Richaud Côtes du Rhône Villages Cairanne
Richaud might be situated closer to the Languedoc than Burgundy, but stylistically he sees himself as having more in common with the Cote d’Or and is dismissive of what he describes as the over extracted styles of the south. The key, he says, is balance, and this begins in the vineyard. He has also finished his new winery, with a succession of smaller tanks, which gives him greater flexibility for blending smaller parcels of wine. Tasting at the domaine takes twice as long but the experience is greatly rewarding, as Richaud demonstrates the rich palate that his meticulous vineyards yield him. Intense deep red in colour, the Cairanne has a powerful perfume, with notes of freshly cooked cherries, blackberries and red summer fruits. On the palate, it is robust but maintains an elegant backbone of tannins and well-tempered acidity. Full-bodied, with ripe blackberries and plum flavours, it has a long, fruity finish.
