The Cotes du Rhone Villages Cuvee du Vatican has always been considered as the "younger brother" of the famous Chateauneuf du Pape. It is well worth questioning this assuption, however. This is a wine that has long since proved its credentials and which continues to astound us by its vitality. A true vintage wine, it reveals its attractions for the greatest pleasure of one and all. This endearing wine will always be present at table wherever good living and good humor are the rule.
Solid, with a nice gutsy feel to the dark currant and fig fruit, liberally laced with roasted espresso notes. Hefty, but still racy enough for balance.
