2001 Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Domaine la Roquette

Deep, intense purple-red, the aromas here exude bold berry fruit, spice and garrigue-like herbs. The palate is rich and layered; an expansive châteauneuf that is not shy of volume, yet despite its evident weight and depth avoids being overtly heady. The lush Grenache-dominant fruit, with freshness and succulence, comes through remarkably well, almost encouraging youthful consumption. Perfectly-balanced and a very fine example from this Brunier-owned property of growing repute.

About this region

Southern Rhône

Whilst the vineyards of the north cling to the river, the South is a much more spread out affair. The head of this broad church is undoubtedly the legendary Châteauneuf-du-Pape, but with exploration comes excitement from names such as Gigondas, Vacqueyras, and the Ventoux. The South is also home to the majority of ‘Côtes du Rhône’ wines, a vast category where picking the right producer is the key to discovering some of the most user-friendly, versatile and best value wines out there.
