Food Pairings for Mestre Châteauneuf-du-Pape 'Cuvee des Sommeliers'
Cue Ennio Morricone music: this is the domaine with no name. Consult the guidebooks and you will find a glorious blank. Old-fashioned Chateauneuf from a quirky grower who ages his wines in enormous oak foudres and releases them to order. The blend is reassuringly southern Rhone: 60% Grenache, 10% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre and 5% Cinsault and the remaining odds and curious sods making up a baker's dozen à la Chateau Beaucastel. This Chateauneuf has the usual animal aromas, game-and-gravy, plus olives, tamarinds, oranges and a mahogany smoothness derived from maturity, in other words, a right old roister-doisterer. With heart, mind and lots of body - a really pukka wine as a young TV chef might say. Buy some now - for now - and buy some now - for later - it's got legs to burn. A perfumed wine, it still marches to the drum of sun and the garrigue.
