La Chapelle du Marin Cotes du Rhone
La Chapelle du Marin, Cotes du Rhone - A show-stopping benchmark Cotes du Rhone. Deeply coloured, intense classic 'cold tar' nose, the palate is classically moulded from blackberried fruit with smoky depth.
The vineyards of this fourth generation Domaine are very close to (but not in) Châteauneuf du Pape and share similar soil characteristics - limestone sand and the characteristic round pebbles (galets roulés) which absorb heat during the day and keep the 18 year old Syrah vines at a more even temperature during the night.
