Production

The southern Rhône Valley is swathed in warm, sunny vineyards and peppered with hilltop, stone-hewn villages on its rocky outcrops. Outside of the delimited areas of the famous village appellations, the wine the local vignerons make and enjoy with their friends in the village cafés and bistros is Pays de Vaucluse. Cuvée Jean Paul Rouge is made predominantly from a blend of Grenache and Syrah from the Vin de Pays de Vaucluse. Traditional Rhône-based viticulture is used, with part manual/part machine harvest. Classic vinification with temperature controlled fermentation (to gain immediate fruit flavours) and maceration between 5 to 10 days before pneumatic pressing.

Tasting notes

A classic southern Rhône red with ample rich fruit and an appealing herbal freshness. The palate is lusciously textured with plum, strawberry and a touch of spice. Uncomplicated and deliciously drinkable yet serious enough to accompany food.

Food match

Drink with hearty food such as grilled meats and casseroles. Also great with BLTs, pizzas and mature, hard cheeses.
