Georges Duboeuf Domaine de Pontheux Chiroubles 2015

Overview

This Cru Chiroubles presents itself in a shiny blueberry color. It has remarkable complexity, finesse and elegance, with floral aromas (primarily peony), cassis and kirsch. With concentrated, unctuous tannins, it has a tongue-coating finish that is reminiscent of light syrup.

Winemaker Notes
The grapes come from 17.3 acres of traditional Gobelet-trellised southwest-facing vineyards with vines more than 50 years old. Harvesting of this wine is conducted manually, in whole bunches, and the grapes are destemmed before pressing. Semi-carbonic maceration and malolactic fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks.


Interesting Facts
This wine pairs best with charcuterie, chicken, lasagna and soft cheeses.
