A stunning wine this vintage from this world-renowned producer. Cuvée “Les Racines” showcases the vineyard parcels surrounding the winery—the origin of the domaine with the oldest vines—with the emphasis on freshness and extravagant cornucopian fruit.
This wine is absolutely ideal for more fatty cuts that are cooked longer and because more mature reds with softer tannins are best. Prime Rib for example has plenty of fat but it is not charred as steak so you need to look for big reds that are not too heavy on oak, otherwise the spice will mask the juicy flavours of meat.
Choose between a mature Bordeaux, Tempranillo from Ribera del Duero or a Southern Rhône blend like Châteauneuf du Pâpe or Gigondas. DOMAINE LES PALLIERES Gigondas 'Les Racines' would be a great choice with its dense, brooding style and hints of liquorice and herbs.
