Luscious, warm fruit Châteauneuf crafted by hot shot winemaker Thierry Ferlay. Le Prince de Courthézon's velvety texture and power have earned it numerous awards ' a brilliant example of the Rhône's revered red at its most full bodied and elegant.
Châteauneuf du Pape is the greatest of southern Rhône reds and Le Prince de Courthézon is a sublime example. It'smade at Châteauneuf'sonly co-operative winery by Thierry Ferlay , an experienced winemaker who learned his craft working in the Rhône and Down Under. All the grape growers are part owners, so maximising quality is their sole focus and explains the Prince'sfabulous medal winning success. With fruit sourced from ancient, low yielding vines across all sectors of the region, you not only get lovely intensity but rich and complex flavours. It'smostly Grenache, the Rhône'sfruitiest variety, with Syrah and Mourvèdre adding colour, peppery black fruit and structure. Serve with game casserole, especially venison, or roast lamb.
