VELVET SMOOTH. TREMENDOUS VALUE.
From a region long famed as being home to the best value wines in France, Chemin des Papes Cotes du Rhone is a perfect example of the soft, spicy wine in the plush style that makes the Côtes du Rhône wines so popular. Velvet smooth and supple, the 2019 is a blend of Grenache (60%), Syrah (30%), other Rhône grape varieties (10%). Those fleshy Grenache flavours bring those rich, dark choco-berry fruits to the fore while the Syrah and regional components add spice and tannin on the finish. This is an absolutely lovely glass of wine. Tremendous value.
Wonderfully fruited and instantly appealing, the bouquet shows dark plum, blackberry, cocoa, toasted almond and mixed spice aromas, leading to a succulent palate that is rounded and plush. The wine is fleshy and tasty, and delivers plenty of ripe fruit flavours, finishing long and smooth.
