2007 CHÂTEAUNEUF-DU-PAPE, Château de Vaudieu. Rhône

Bin:  700

Alcohol percentage:  15%

Area:

The most famous village in the southern Rhône, named after a new palace built for Pope John XXII in the 14th century. In 1923 it became the first region to adopt a system of regulations to ensure quality – this became the basis for the Appellation Contrôlée system for the rest of France. Its broad, ripe, spicy style (and its easily pronounceable name) has made it a favourite in both the UK and the US

Grape variety:

60% Grenache and 15% Mourvedre (both aged in tank) with 25% Syrah, aged in smaller (225 litre) oak, half new and half one year old, for 14 months

Producer:

Laurent Brechet has 70 hectares, next to the famous Rayas estate

Vintage:

Great year in the south of France

Maturity potential:

2012-2017

Food match:

All Châteauneuf is broad and spicy and great with winter casseroles, soups and roasts. A wine like this one has the softness and freshness to work with a baked potato and salad, with a piece of cheese, or even just by the fireside on its own
