Brilliant ruby violet Aromas of ripe plums, cherries and blackberries. Beautiful floral notes of violets, accompanied by spicy aromas and black olives. The barrique is barely noticeable, but supports the aromas. On the palate, the Cuvée Paul convinces with direct fruit and beautiful melting. It ends medium-bodied and persistent with elegance and a very fruity finish.
Goes particularly well with red meat, poultry, stews and cheese.
The Story behind the Wine:
Christophe Chapillon, is a Frenchman in Spain who takes care of the export of Spanish wines and has built his own projects - the Cuvée Harmonie and the Cuvée Paul - with great commitment and love for wine. Christoph's philosophy is extremely sympathetic: He attaches great importance to high quality and fair prices. You should be able to enjoy his wines every day without inhibition, without straining your wallet.
Cuvée Paul comes from the Calatayud region, south of Rioja. It is made from 100% Grenache grown in 70-year-old vines, the type of fruit that is only used in the most expensive Rhone wines and spends a year in oak before bottling. Rich and ripe and displaying tons of dried and black fruit, black pepper and cedar, James Suckling praised Cuvée Paul as a "rich and elegant red" with "excellent balance and a long, polished finish."
