The Clos Saint Michel, Chateauneuf-du-Pape 'Cuvee Special' is full bodied, juicy Chateauneuf, organic conversion, traditional style wine with depth and grip. The wine ripe, chewy tannins and a smoky roasted meat character, black cherries and kirsch, pepper, herbs (bay leaf, rosemary) glycerine fruit. Rich, deep and generous, with a compelling sweetness of fruit and a lush, pliant texture. Finishes with firm but sweet tannins and a note of dark chocolate. Gosh it sounds good, get your steaks out! Or pheasant, grouse, venison...
Olivier and Franck Mousset represent the fourth generation of wine makers. They re-established the profound taste and close union between the vineyards and winery in the Chateauneuf du Pape area. Their spirit, energy and care accompanies every plant, tank and barrel during their daily transformation. The estate marries modern, sustainable farming methods with a desire to produce concentrated, deep traditional wines. Although not an organic estate, the approach is one of care and attention in the vineyard and cellar whilst respecting nature and the local environment.
