Vignobles David Les Masques Rouge 2012
Intense color with purple reflections, concentrated nose combines black fruit, cherry and spice. Fresh mouth with tension. Full term with tannins that arise in the mouth. Very long, spicy, dense finish. Superb. A condition of the open long before the meal.
Besides being an excellent wine, it Châteauneuf du Pape is primarily the work of Frederic David, an independent winemaker and the only one to produce kosher wines in the Rhone as independent. His field, The David Vineyards is a family property of 53 hectares planted with vines and olive trees and operated according to the principles of sustainable agriculture. We are here in the south of the Rhone valley, not far from Avignon, Uzes and Nimes.
