Cor Hominis Laetificat Châteauneuf du Pape 2010
The Very Best of the Rhone wines, matured in XII century cellars near Roquefort in the Aveyron at an altitude of 700m. This epicurean wine associates strength, elegance, and subtlety.
Terroir : Châteauneuf du Pape – Bédarrides. A blend of the best terroirs of sand, gravel and clay.
Grape varieties : A lot of Grenache but also Syrah and Mourvèdre. All grapes coming from selected low-yield non-stressed vineyards. The union of these grape varieties with certain soils yields shows surprisingly pleasant aromas.
Vinification process : We carry out long macerations to bring the best out of the grapes, always striving towards harmony
Ageing : After malolactic fermentation, the various varieties are blended.
Ageing takes place in a XII century stone cellar at 700-meter high, close to the town of Roquefort (Aveyron).
New oak is avoided in order to preserve the delicacy of the Grenache variety.
Aspect : dense ruby red
Nose: complex and seductive. Exotic aromas of chocolate and vanilla alternate with local red berries such as redcurrant and raspberries, a joy for the heart as well as the nose.
Taste: massive attack. This wine has tonus. A symphony of fruits and spices uniting in an astonishing harmony of aromas. May the glass be full to the brim!
Service : Serve at 16° with Epicureans
