Châteauneuf-du-Pape Rouge "Les Cèdres" 2011 - Paul Jaboulet Aîné


Though Paul Jaboulet is a Nortern Rhône specialist, the house knows how to make a brilliant Châteauneuf-du-Pape! The fine blend of the usual grapes creates a beautiful nose of black cherry with a hint of liquorice. On the palate, the wine already shows a certain degree of evolution, which is why we have picked it - it is just ready to drink now and we loved it!

Available in very limited quantity!

Wine-Spectator.jpg

90/100 "The solid, tarry, grippy edge of the finish holds together the core of steeped currant, bitter plum and black cherry fruit, while singed tobacco leaf and a cedar edge blossom through the finish, imparting a frankly rustic character." (previous vintage)
