Châteauneuf du Pape 2006 - Château de Vaudieu

 

93/100 Parker

Maturity: You can taste it now.

By Jeb Dunnuck in 2016: "The 2006 Châteauneuf du Pape de Vaudieu is another great wine from this estate. Composed of 80% Grenache, 16% Syrah and 4% Mourvèdre, it has been entirely destemmed and aged in vats and new barrels, giving it plenty of aromas of black olives, liquorice, grilled herbs and a meaty background on the nose. Medium to full-bodied, rich, nicely concentrated and voluptuously stylish on the palate."

 

- This classic wine represents the main characteristic of the estate's style.

- Blend : GRENACHE BLANC 52% - ROUSSANNE 21% - CLAIRETTE 27%.

- Vinification: Château de Vaudieu is made from a very precise plot orientation, which allows us to pick the white grapes at their optimum maturity, in the south-west of the estate. The grapes are picked by hand, early in the morning to keep them fresh, and sorted and put in boxes to limit crushing. The bunches are gently pressed in a pneumatic press. The musts are selected and then sent to the stainless steel vat room, which is thermo-regulated. After cold settling, the Roussannes and part of the Grenaches are put into barrels to carry out the alcoholic fermentation.

- Ageing : Aged for 8 months in 228l barrels for the Roussannes and part of the Grenaches. (35% of the total volume in barrels).

- Tasting : Pale gold colour with silvery reflections. A nose opening on notes of white flowers and sweet spices, then lightly toasted brioche. The attack is lively and frank, then the roundness brought by the ageing process envelops the taste buds. The finish is long and confirms the impression of minerality felt on the attack. To be enjoyed now and for 10 years.

- Sommelier's advice : To be served at 11-12°C, as an aperitif, then follow with a carpaccio of scallops with citrus fruit sauce, a grilled sea bass, or a nice truffle brouillade.
