Château Saint Estéve - Côtes du Rhône Tradition 2016
Côtes du Rhône Tradition is a deep ruby coloured wine with intense aromas and flavours of ripe dark berries, black pepper, leather, undergrowth and liquorice as well as a hint of violet and mint. The wine comes from Château Saint Estève d’Uchaux, located in the Rhône Valley in southern France and is a beautiful example of the classic Rhône blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mouvèdre grapes, that 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 wine has a warm and vigorous profile, with pronounced, fine tannins, and goes well with a variety of dishes such as lamb, red meat, charcuterie, savoury vegetarian dishes or poultry with red wine sauce and herbs. We recommend an hour of decanting before serving the wine to open up the wine and release the delicious flavours. The wine can easily be kept for 5 years or more. Côtes du Rhône Tradition has a more powerful and full-bodied style compared to Côtes du Rhône Rouge from the same chateau, which is juicier and has a lighter style.
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.
