Palais des Anciens Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2008

Member Review by duncan 906:

This bottle of wine was part of a three bottle lot I bought on www.bidforwine.co.uk/auctions/show/26664 for £31.Vignobles du Peloux is a well known negociant firm operating in the southern Rhone and their Chateauneuf-du-pape is made from grapes [65% grenache,25% syrah and 10% mourverde] from a single vineyard near the village of Courthezon which is between Orange and Avignon where the average vine is over 40 years old.I drank my bottle last weekend with a dinner of pork chops and I have to say it is a lovely wine.There is a lot of fruit [think plums,blackcurrants and cherries] and yet it has that structured and reserved taste one gets with Chateauneuf-du-pape.
