With their stately embossed bottles and long history of elegance, the wines of Chateauneuf-du-Pape have become synonymous with full-throttle intensity and unbridled power. But there are a few winemakers like Ann-Charlotte who are bucking this trend. Her vines grow in sandy soil on the cooler, North side of the hill, allowing her to create a more elegant style of wine. The Mistral wind plays a huge role in the vineyards keeping the vines dry and yields low by knocking off grapes, allowing them to become their most potent and flavorful. Perfumed aromas of raspberry preserves, thyme, and dried flowers lead to a juicy, medium-bodied palate with a silky texture and fine-grained tannins on the finish. 

Pairings: Mushroom Melt from Longleaf Swine
