Domaine Duclaux Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2016

MXN $1850

Grape: Syrah, Cinsault, Mouverdre, Counoise, Grenache noir

Appellation: Châteauneuf-du-Pape AOC

Region: Rhône, France

You’ll taste/smell: Complex ,focused, electric!  This Grenache-based blend offers juicy red cherry and dried-strawberry flavors shaded by smoke, earth and dried leaves. It’s plush and creamy on the palate but lifted by a kick of red-currant acidity on midpalate. The moderately long finish lingers on fine, ripe tannins and a swirl of caramel. There is a fine, balanced structure. This is an elegant, not heavyweight style expressing Cinsault and Grenache in particular, with the emphasis on finesse rather than power.

Good to have it with: the producers famille quiot suggest a prime rib

The Winery: Domaine Duclaux

The Duclaux Family is one of the oldest in Châteauneuf-du-Pape. This family built up its domaine through the centuries and was one of the first founder members of the Appellation association in 1904. The Quiot and Duclaux families built up bonds and family connections over the years. The Domaine Duclaux, as a historic domain of the appellation, produces wines in the tradition of the traditional Châteauneuf-du-Pape: powerful, elegant and structured. In order to maximize the potential of our terroirs for our red Duclaux, we have chosen to age it in wood. What is typical of this wine is its high grape variety in Mourvèdre which gives it its spicy side.
