Chateauneuf Du Pape La Sousto & Dark Truffles 135g
Pairing chocolate and red wine can be a challenge that most are not prepared to face, but it can also be one of the most extraordinary gastronomic experiences of your life. Dark chocolate due to its lower sweetness levels can enhance the fruit flavours of the wine and create a marvellous tension between the tannic finish of a full bodied red and the bitter finish of the chocolate. Whether you’re a full on wine lover or an adventurous foodie this is a pairing you just can’t say no to!
Chateauneuf Du Pape Domaine La Sousto 75cl is a blend of 80% Grenache, 10% Syrah, 8% Mourvèdre 1% Counties and 1% Vacacère. The aromas are intense and the cherries and the red berries are woven together with spices like pepper, minerals and garrique. The style is quintessentially Chateauneuf Du Pape, with a medium body that balances perfectly with the silky round texture through the finish with a lingering flavours of red plum and spices.Read more...
