Clos Saint-Michel "Mathilde" Côtes-du-Rhone Rouge 2016
A juicy, full-bodied "Chateauneuf-du-Pape' style Cotes du Rhone from 4th generation winemakers, Franck and Olivier Mousset. This small estate of 15 hectares is located in the village of Sorgues, on the road to Chateauneuf du Pape, (where 3 hectares of their 16 hectares of vines are planted - the rest is classified as Côtes-du-Rhone).
A rich and intense wine, dark ruby in colour with juicy notes of ripe blackcurrant, moreish liquorice and warming spices. On the palate, a hint of black olive enveloped in dark, ripe fruit.
Grapes: 80% Grenache, 20% Syrah from 15-40 year old vines.
