Le Prince de Courthézon Côtes du Rhône 2016
As close as you get to genuine Châteauneuf power – Gold medal pedigree too!
Le Prince is from the only co-operative cellar in Châteauneuf du Pape, the top appellation of the southern Rhône, and is owned and run by local growers. The grapes are from vineyards that abut the famous name appellation and share the same stone strewn soil that promotes superb ripeness and richness of fruit. The vines are old and gnarled, producing few grapes but with rare concentration of flavour.
Well-travelled winemaker Thierry Ferlay brings a modern perspective to his work, and we think his Côtes du Rhône is exceptionally good. The 2016 vintage is stunning – just the ticket with herby lamb, a robust cassoulet, roast pork, duck, slow cooked casseroles or soft, creamy cheeses.
