Massif d'Uchaux Grande Réserve is a premium red wine from Château Saint Estève d’Uchaux, located in the Rhône Valley in southern France. We have here a blend of 60% Grenache and 40% Syrah 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 Massif d'Uchaux Grande Réserve is ruby with a purple hue with complex aromas and flavours of ripe red and dark berries, black pepper, leather, truffle, undergrowth, and liquorice as well as a hint of violet and mint. A fruity freshness balances the powerful taste and the finish is incredibly long and pleasant. Velvety tannins and a round, smooth feeling on the palate, form a wine that is both easy to enjoy on its own, as well as together with a variety of dishes for instance lamb or steak with oven baked potatoes, root vegetables and savoury sauces. The wine is matured for 24 months in a combination of concrete vessels and French oak barrels, and is then bottled unfiltered. The celebrated vintage 2015 is very warm, resulting in a powerful wine that is ready to be enjoyed now, and can also be easily kept for at least 5 more years to develop the flavours and aromas even more. We recommend letting the wine breath in a decanter for an hour before serving.
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.
