Chateau De La Gardine Chateauneuf Du Pape Cuvee Tradition RougeRegular price £48.00
Chateau De La Gardine Chateauneuf Du Pape Cuvee Tradition Rouge is a wine that symbolises concentration. Its deep purple colour invites you into the nose of vivid dark fruits, exotic spices and cocoa aromas. There is a marriage of the power of liquorice to the delicacy of violets. There are plenty of silky tannins on the palate, giving structure to the meaty, dark fruit and indicating a bright future.

Château De La Gardine's Cuvée Tradition red Châteauneuf Du Pape is grown in vineyards with four different soil types, each providing the wine with distinctive characters. Soils with many large, round, flat pebbles, known as "galets" give wines with body and structure; Urgonian limestone supplies balancing minerality; and brown soils and sandy soils produce wines of finesse and elegance. Portions of the wine are aged in stainless steel and old oak barriques for anywhere from nine to fourteen months.
