When thinking of wines from France’s Provence, rosé comes to mind. Dry crisp rosés to sip on warm sunny summer days. Red wines are produced in small numbers and they can be fantastic.
Chateau Pradeaux, Bandol, France, 2006 shows a wilder side of Provençal wines. Made of 100% mourvèdre, Chateau Pradeaux is dark ruby red in the glass. It has flavors of red raspberry, blackberry, cut grass and earth. The palate is tart cherry and strawberry up front with plenty of earth and acidity. Mouth drying strong tannins lead to a long finish. The Chateau Pradeaux is a wine that needs to be decanted and swirled plenty of times once in your glass.
Enjoy the Chateau Pradeaux with a roast leg of lamb with roasted root vegetables.
