VELVET SMOOTH. TREMENDOUS VALUE.
From a region long famed as being home to the best value wines in France, Chemin des Papes Côtes du Rhône 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, with aromas of red fruits and spice, this wine will pair beautifully with grilled meats, Mediterranean vegetables and cheeses. 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.
Sam Kim, Wine Orbit writes "Sweetly fruited with spicy nuances, the wine shows dark berry, clove, nutmeg, game and toasted nut aromas on the nose, followed by a generously flavoursome palate offering excellent fruit intensity well framed by fine grainy tannins with a lingering savoury finish."
The winery writes "This wine has a bright and intense ruby colour. The nose reveals aromas of red fruits, strawberries and blackcurrants, with spicy notes. It goes well with grilled meats, salads and Mediterranean dishes."
