Elite de St. Pierre Chateauneuf du Pape 2012

VARIETAL: Rhone Blend
VINTAGE: 2012
GRAPE: Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre, Cinsault

POINTS: 93 
This is a wine with a winning personality that is thoroughly enjoyable from start to finish. It is certainly a superior vintage to 2011 and sylistically the 2012s I have sampled are similar to the pretty 2010 vintage. 2012 had a solid growing season and this wine like many other well made CDPs are approachable early and have long term aging potential. This is indeed a beautiful and elegant Chateauneuf that is tasting quite delicious now and profoundly food friendly. This wine captures the terroir of the southern Rhone. Known as Le Mistral, the legendary wind that blows in this famed region, helps keep the vines free from disease and insures the perfect ripening during the summer heat. This fall I attended the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art’s Bacchanal event which honored proprietor Jean Charles Boisset. The talented and creative Boisset has put together a stunning portfolio of top wineries from the Rhone Valley, and Burgundy; as well as DeLoach and Buena Vista in Sonoma Valley and Raymond Winery, in Napa Valley. The Elite de Saint Pierre represents a screaming value with its pretty taste profile that exudes elegance and yet has the backbone and sumptuous taste profile with an inner core of juicy fruit. While CDP can legally be a blend of up to 13 regional grapes this is comprised of the classic varietals of Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault and Mourvedre. It is mainly dark red fruit but has a cornucopia of multi-faceted flavors, including berries, red flowers, cinnamon spice, kirsch, black cherries, tobacco, currants and vanilla oak. Pair with Filet Mignon in a balsalmic glaze, venison in a wine reduction with spaetzle, lamb shank, veal roast and even Bouillabaisse.

Chateauneuf du Pape 2012
 
Terroir
Several kilometers to the north of Avignon, on the rocky, sun-scorched hills and terraces swept by the Mistral, is the famous vineyard of Châteauneuf du Pape. Plots which are harvested for Elite de Saint Pierre are followed up all over the year by our technicians and oenologist, respecting the special schedule of conditions. The soil is made with clay and limestone mixed and covered up with quartz round stones. The Alpine diluvium (quartz stones) have a heat-regulating effect: they store up the heat of the day and return it during the night, creating a well-known furnace effect.     
 
Technical Details
Grape varieties: Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault and Mourvèdre 8% of the blending is in French oak barrels for 10 months.
Ageing: Already enjoyable today but will reach its full aromatic potential after 3 years. It could be kept for 7 to 8 years.  
Recommended serving temperature: Room temperature, at 16°/17°            
 
Wine Characteristics
Tasting: Colour: a purple colour with intense highlights.  
Nose: The bouquet is fine and delicate with notes of cherry and plum.  
Mouth: Powerful and smooth, this vintage is delightful for its richness and complexity, with notes of kernel fruits, sweet spices, leather and cocoa. The fresh, complex finish is exceptional.   
It is a perfect match for grilled meats, French “Civets” and all strong cheeses.
