Chateauneuf-du-Pape wines tend to be wonderfully expansive reds from the southern Rhône valley region of France that can make traditional Cabernet Sauvignons seem small in comparison.
Dense and powerful, with plenty of spices on the nose and a rich, mouth full of red fruit, they are wonderful wines to pair food. They are especially ideal when matched with grilled meats, charcuterie, or cheese.
Terres de Galets Côtes du Rhône takes its name from the smooth white pebbles called “galets” which are found throughout the vineyards. They reflect the heat and light of the sun to help ripen the grapes and create a rich, concentrated wine.
This excellent Chateauneuf-du-Pape sports a deep color with tastes of rustic, meaty plum, and black cherry fruit flavors, complemented with herbal elements of sage and thyme and an appropriate appearance of white pepper spice. The finish adds a surprising fresh subtle bit of spearmint.
This is a big wine that would be exceptional with beef short ribs, lamb stew, or veal chops.
