Smooth and luscious from Chateau Neuf du Pape:
I walked into this tiny vineyard by chance a few years ago. We found ourselves in a gravelled back area, greeted by a barking dog. It seemed deserted. A tall, sleepy guy appeared with a half smile. Almost reluctantly, he gave us a brief "tour" of the modest place not at all "done" f or tourists and half heartedly led us to a little tasting room.
This unenthusiastic prelude did not exactly make us have any hopes for the wine. Then with a little pour of the red and quick swirl, he handed over a glass. We were not prepared for the lush delight we tasted. Needless to say a case immediately was placed in the back of the car before we left. I recently found a bottle from that trip and it is still a really nice glass of red.
