About Maison du Midi 2020 Chateauneuf du Pape
Here's a delicious Rhone red from the ripe 2020 vintage. Chateauneuf du Pape Maison du Midi is a wine made from carefully selected grapes from a single estate with vine averaging 15 years of age. Head pruned the vines are growing in classic Southern Rhone terroir of large pebble stones with sandy clay subsoils that balance ripening and keep the roots healthy and strong.
All manually harvested, the grapes are fully destemmed befor fermentation. Maceration lasted 3 weeks in temperature controlled tanks and the wine aged in 100 years old wooden cask and stainless steel vats to soften and maintain fruity aromas.
Tasting Panel Magazine scored this 93 points saying "This youthful red, a blend of 84% Grenache, 11% Syrah, and 5% Mourvedre, is plump, round, and ripe. Its noteworthy elegance employs indulgently fresh, delicious blue and red berries, spicy and fragrant. White pepper and cranberry perform a mid-palate performance, igniting a silky texture, while washing the tongue with chalky tannins. Red cherry adds a sweetness to the toasty finish."
This is a Chateauneuf with lots going at an incredible price. You won't want to miss it!!
