Château de Vaudieu Châteauneuf-du-Pape Val de Dieu 2016

148.00 SGD

Sommelier's Notes

Brilliant ruby. Sexy, intensely perfumed raspberry, boysenberry and rose pastille scents are complemented by hints of cola, rhubarb and peppery spices. Palate-staining red and blue fruit flavors show impressive power as well as vivacity thanks to a spine of juicy acidity. The floral quality comes back emphatically on a very long, sappy finish shaped by smooth tannins. This wine’s urgency and power are superb, as is its balance.


Culinary Recommendation: To serve 16 C - 18 C. Good match with Camargue bull stew, or a lamb.
