In a nutshell:
A full bodied, well structured and very approachable Châteauneuf.
The 2016 vintage is a blend of mainly Grenache with some Syrah and small amounts of the various other varieties permitted in this appellation. The Grenache backbone helps give a natural sweetness to the ripe blackcurrant and plum flavours and also brings out the silky tannins nicely. There's also a pleasant undertone of cinnamon and soft spices adding extar complexity.
When to drink:
It matches well with meaty, or feathered game dishes and tuna carpaccio works really well also.
