Chateauneuf–du-Pape, Les Closiers, 2007

Wine Type: Chateauneuf–du-Pape
Country and Region: France, Rhone
Colour: Red
Category: Something Special

Appearance: Brilliant ruby red with a short rim indicating youth. Nose: Intense spicy aromas of cloves, pepper and vanilla with hints of red cherries and ripe strawberries. Palate: This wine is dry and full bodied. There are soft tannins that provide structure. It finishes off with a long a fiery aftertaste. Conclusion: This Chateauneuf, like most French wines, is essentially a wine to be drunk with food. As it is fairly high in acidity, it can go very well with dishes served with tomato based sauces.
