2011 Domaine de la Citadelle - Gouverneur St Auban
Domaine de la Citadelle
Rhone Valley / France
FOOD MATCHING NOTE:
Outstanding with rich red meat dishes, game or even hard cheese at the end of a meal.
This deep ruby/purple-tinged, full-bodied, somewhat internationally-styled effort reveals plenty of blackberry, pepper, tar, and lavender notes as well as a hint of Provencal tipycity with a subtle herbaceous character, chewy, fleshy flavours, a touch of oak, and a spicy, long finish.
