Château Saint Estéve, Côtes du Rhône 2016
The elegant and well-composed Côtes du Rhône Rouge is a red blend of 80 % Grenache and 20 % Syrah grapes and comes from Château Saint Estève d’Uchaux, located in the Rhône Valley in southern France. The vines thrive at the foothills of the ridge Massif d'Uchaux with excellent terroir and soils rich in quartz-limestone. Most of the vines are old and produce low yields with highly concentrated grapes, resulting in wines with a complex bouquet, strength and elegance and finesse at the same time.
The ruby coloured wine has aromas and flavours reminiscent of black cherries, black pepper, herbs, undergrowth and liquorice. It is a medium bodied, juicy and fresh wine with fine tannins, a good structure and length. Serve slightly chilled at 14-16 ° C. The wine goes well with a variety of dishes such as grilled red meat, savoury vegetarian dishes and poultry in red wine sauce. The style of Côtes du Rhône Rouge is lighter and juicier compared to the wine Côtes du Rhône Tradition from the same chateau which is more powerful and full-bodied.
Château Saint Estève d’Uchaux is a big old castle situated in the small and quite unknown wine region Massif d'Uchaux next door to the more well-known areas Cairanne, Rasteau and Gigondas, north of the renowned Châteauneuf-du-Pape. The domain owns 230 hectares of land, but most of it is completely inaccessible nature and only 50 hectares are planted with vines. The castle has been in the same family since 1809. After Marc Français took over the estate after his father in 1973, he decided to switch to organic viticulture to protect and preserve the rich flora and fauna of the region. Today all the wines from Château St. Estève d'Uchaux are certified organic.
