Delas Freres Châteauneuf-du-Pape “Haute-Pierre” 2017
The colour is a deep garnet red.
To the nose, the “Haute Pierre” cuvée is characterised by strong spicy aromas, which show a rich, powerful body wrapped around with a more delicate yet tightly knit tannic framework.
Rich and unctuous on the palate, the finish reveals some intense, liquorice like flavours.
Food and Wine affinities:
Ideal with the traditional French and “Provençale” cuisine-stews, stuffed and fine meats.
