Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Speciale Clos St Michel 2015, full bodied, juicy Chateauneuf, organic conversion, traditional style wine with depth and grip. The wine is a chewy Châteauneuf with 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!
