Domaine de Cristia
RED WINES The grapes are selected in the vineyard, then destemmed before being put into vats. Three weeks of fermentation and maceration in concrete vats follow, with the use of indigenous yeasts. Temperatures are kept low in order to produce aromatic wines. We do not insist on any massive extraction, but prefer the ‘matiere’ to express itself. (Due to the way we work in the vineyards, the grapes possess enough concentration). The pressed juice and free-run juice are blended together according to the vintage. Châteauneuf-du-Pape wines are aged in concrete vats and barrels for 18 months. Côtes-du-Rhône and Vin de Pays are aged only in concrete vats for 8 to 12 months. WHITE WINES The grapes are selected and pressed very quickly. They are fermented and aged for 8 months in a combination of barrels and stainless steel vats.– Description from hinaualan
Not an overly complex aroma but a highly attractive palate - upfront sweetness, rounded and smooth with a hint of tannin and a balancing acidity. Good herb, spice and hints enlivens a plumy richness of flavour. Smooth and drinkable enough to slurp with...

Posted on behalf of a user. c9dp isnt my specialist area, so thought I'd turn it over to the wiser and larger crowd:ThanksPJ~~~~~~Do you have any recommendations for a Chateauneuf-du-pape? We love fully structured, complex wines. This one sounds up my alley, but also one that most would probably feel strongly about...positively or negatively. I ... Read More

Not an overly complex aroma but a highly attractive palate - upfront sweetness, rounded and smooth with a hint of tannin and a balancing acidity. Good herb, spice and hints enlivens a plumy richness of flavour. Smooth and drinkable enough to slurp without food - it is that richness and sweetness helping it all along but there is enough weight to... Read More
Pleasant enough and again demonstrating the ranges' sweet-fruited drinkability but lacking a little 'zing' and complexity to make it stand out. Hints of ink, a smidge of ink and plenty of blackberry fruit give the palate weight and some interest. Perhaps a little yong still. http://www.spittoon.biz/domaine_cristia_from_naked_win.html Read More
Very similar in style to the Grenache - an inherent, smooth richness that makes for high 'drinkability'. More spice on the flavour but a little lighter in style with a longer lasting flavour. Spicy, leathery touches - another good sign of a perfect roast lamb match. Lovely flavours of red fruits mixed with blackberries, elderberry, a leatherines... Read More
