Domaine Duseigneur Chateauneuf du Pape Catarina 2018
Grape: Grenache, Syrah
Tasting notes: The fruit, picked at early maturity, gave wines with high acidity and moderate alcohol levels. Surprisingly, a balance on the fruit is achieved, with fresh and elegant tannins.
About the winery: Hailing from a family of winemakers, settled in Saint Laurent des Arbres, on the other side of the Rhone, Bernard Duseigneur took charge of the Domaine in 2002. After an investment banker experience in the City, he reconnected with his Mediterranean roots by continuing his father's and brother's work, Jean and Frederic, before pitching his tent on the left bank of the Rhone in Chateauneuf-du-Pape. In a partnership since 2007 with Philippe Faure-Brac, elected the world's best sommelier in 1992, he has the privilege of working with one of the world's finest wine connoisseurs who also possesses a true passion for terroirs and winemakers.
