Description
Olivier and Franck Mousset are the fourth generation of their family to make wine on their plot of land on an old terrace of the Rhone river on the edge of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Olivier’s Châteauneuf expertise (Clos St Michel) and their organic farming methods together produce a rich full-bodied Côtes du Rhône of great intensity and class.

 

Tasting Notes

The dominant variety here is Grenache which makes for a warming, spicy, rich red with voluptuous soft tannins, and plenty of oomph. This is the kind of red that goes brilliantly with summer barbeques and winter stews alike, and it is soft and easy-going enough to sip on its own, or knock back a glass with pizza or a curry.
