La Fiole Du Pape Nv Châteauneuf Du Pape, Rhône Valley
$34.95 at LCBO
Well, first of all, you have to wash a bottle! And your hands.
Not a bad wine for non vintage. Needs a good pairing. I had a coq au vin and gratin Dauphinoise. Creamy gratin and light chicken in wine sauce were great for this wine.
In the glass ruby red,bright.
On the nose sweet fruit, berries, spice.
On the palate dry, full bodied, ripe berries, vanilla, fresh acidity of raspberries.
Fruity finish with clove notes.
Nice but not the best.
