La Mitre is a Chateauneuf that is only released in the top vintages and the 2011 vintage of this wine is my highest rated vintage yet. While this CDP is uniformly well made, this is more suave, elegant and well finessed than previous vintages. Proprietor Jean Charles Boisset and his winemaking team did a beautiful job on this delicious wine, which has a compelling quality price ratio. A consumer friendly, smooth taste profile that has round tannins with long term aging potential. It is a blend of all the traditional CDP varietals including Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault and Mourvedre. A dark ruby red hue with purple highlights. Nicely nuanced aromas of fresh black cherries, with touches of blueberries, kirsch and red flowers. A particularly silky palate of cherry liqueur, kirsch, vanilla oak and red currants, with chocolate, blueberry, and boysenberry cream. Enjoy with baby lamb chops with mint jelly, roasted and barbequed meats, sirloin steaks, elk and other game meats.
 
 
La Mitre Du Pape Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2011
The vineyard of Châteauneuf du Pape is constituted by different terroirs, which have a direct influence on the wine profile. To obtain the structure and the strength our oenologists selected parcels situated on sandy red clay high terraces with “Galets Roulés”, whose presence is justified by the existence of a former glacier in the Rhone Valley. To have freshness, aromatic complexity and spicy notes, they chose areas on chalky clayey soil.
 
Grape Varieties
Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah (A little part in French oak barrels during 10 months) and Mourvèdre.
 
Tasting
This elegant Châteauneuf-du-Pape wine reveals a purplish deep red in colour and features a generous, complex nose with notes of prune, tame, peppery spice and liquorice. Rich yet lively on the palate with pleasing flavours of black fruit and pepper. The finish is long with lovely flavours of cocoa. It is a perfect match for grilled meats, French “Civets” and all strong cheeses.
 
Ageing
Already enjoyable today but will reach its full aromatic potential after 3 years. It could be kept for 7 to 8 years.
 
Serving Temperature
Room temperature, at 16°/17°
