DOMAINE LAFOND CHATEAUNEUF DE PAPE

Posted on

$75.00

A powerful and full-bodied wine with a deep ruby red color with violet tints. The nose is complex: cinnamon, stewed fruit, and Morello cherry. After a firm and ample attack, on the palate we have vanilla and peppery notes which last to the finish. This is a rich and supple wine, long in the mouth. The dominating presence of the characteristic flavor of the Grenache grape in the mouth assures the benchmark of Chateauneuf-du-Pape wines.

Description

Southern Rhone’s landmark region, Chateauneuf du Pape, was the first region to gain AC status in France. That was the 1920s – it’s history goes much further back than that. As the name suggests, the wine region was named after the “new papal home,” referring to the period of time in the 1300’s when the pope resided in Avignon instead of Rome.
