Food Pairings for Ste. Chapelle Soft Red
Even though we had a late spring, 2009 still provided a long ripening season, allowing the grapes to reach their peak ripeness. The premium red grapes we use for Soft Red were fermented on their skins to extract color and flavor before fermentation to achieve a lower alcohol level with balanced residual sweetness.
The 2009 Soft Red shows notes of licorice, strawberry and plum. Although made up of mostly Bordeaux varieties it is hardly a traditional claret blend. It is finished sweet, but with enough acid to keep it in balance.
