Have you ever met someone or something that really rings your chimes? Sometimes there are people, places, or things that you have an immediate affinity for or attraction to. That’s the way I was with ... the wine Chateauneuf du Pape.
The first time I tasted it was in 1974 and I was hooked! Since then, I've learned a lot about CdP - the wine, the region, and even the village! The more I learned, the more I fell in love. So, what's all the fuss about?
It’s a really good wine. Ha! That’s an understatement. CdP is world renowned!!
First, you have those earthly, layered aromas. On the nose, it’s unique and rich. But then, there’s that first sip! When it touches your lips and moves onto your palate, you’ll experience its evolving, layered taste. It embodies all the good characteristics of a well-balanced red wine. It’s sophisticated yet down to earth, and extremely versatile.
One of the other things that I love about this wine is how it parallels life. It lives in the middle of the real but gives us a glimpse of the ideal. Let me show you what I mean. Check out this video:
