Chateauneuf du pape Les Trois Couronnees
This supple yet mouthfilling wine boasts intense notes of garrigue–that Provençal blend of wild thyme, bay leaf and lavender–layered over hints of pepper and a base of cherry fruit. A hint of cocoa emerges on the short but pleasant finish. Drink it now and over the next couple of years.
Always a favourite this was on the cheaper side, but always good none the less. Full bodied, great with most red meat dishes.
