Food Pairings for Xavier Flouret Red Rhone Blend Châteauneuf-du-Pape les Clés du Paradis
PRODUCER: R&D Vins WINEMAKER: Jean-François Ranvier HISTORY: Francois Dauvergne and Jean-François Ranvier are R&D Vins. As put by the famous French wine critics Mr. Bettane & Mr. Desseauve, they “belong to a new generation of young negociants highly involved in the production of their wines with strong ties and implication with the wine grower friends, eventually producing a wine that cannot be truer to the terroir”. VITICULTURE & VINIFICATION: The 45 year old vines produce a low yield of 30 Hl / hectare. Grapes are destemmed before undergoing a classic long and gentle fermentation. AGEING: In foudre for some of the blend. In concrete vats for the majority of it.
Eye: Elegant ruby color Nose: Fruit basket of complex cherry and black currant flavors intermingled with a touch of spices and licorice Palate: Cherry and blackcurrant flavors, powerful yet smooth tannins.
Notes: In foudre for some of the blend. In concrete vats for the majority of it.
