Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Domaine Font de Michelle 2016
Rich, elegant wine with soft blueberry notes and a touch of spice. Delicious, full in the mouth; leather and tobacco notes, very smooth and approachable with a mellow, rich feel. This wine ages well.

‘is possibly more powerful and richer, but equally complex and elegant on the finish. These are both wines to savour slowly, with fine rare red meats or big vegetable dishes, such as stuffed Mediterranean vegetables or tagines. And in both there is a real sense of the special places and ancient soils from which these wines derive.’
#Some savoury, clove-spiced depths with a top note of red berries. The oak here is subtle, so it works with turkey as well as with red meat and even cheese.
