Commencing this month (May 2019), Victuals will select an outstanding fine wine from its cellars for customers to appreciate and enjoy with lunch or dinner.
This months’ choice is a beautiful example of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. The 2006 Domaine Saint Préfert Collection Charles Giraud.
This Châteauneuf-du-Pape is made from 60% Grenache and 40% Mourvèdre. To enjoy this wine at its best it should be decanted ahead of consumption. So please let us know on arrival if you wish to order it.
Price is £80 for a 750ml (standard) bottle.
“It’s full-bodied and dense but not heavy, has medium+ acidity and medium tannin. Excellent length. A fascinating, cooler Châteauneuf-du-Pape with impeccable balance.”
“a Grenache Mourvedre blend with full body but not too heavy, beautifully perfumed with nose of dark fruit and cherry, and notes of liquorice & spice plus a little barnyard”
