The true nature of this wine is expressed by its greatest virtue: simplicity. This is a richly flavored and well balanced wine.
Decant into a carafe when planning to drink it young with grilled breast of duck, roast beef or roast goose. After a few years of aging, this wine will be a delicious accompaniment to venison, leg oflamb and all varietals of cheese.
"The 2010 Cuvee du Vatican Chateauneuf du Pape, a sleeper of the vintage, offers delicious black currant and black cherry fruit intermixed with tobacco leaf, licorice, lavender and spice box characteristics. This is a forward, attractive, full-bodied, richly fruity, seductive 2010."
