Counoise is one of the 13 sanctioned varieties used in Chateauneuf du Pape and is typically blended with other varietals to add complexity. Here at Alexandria Nicole Cellars we feel that this grape thrives on its own when it reaches the peak ripeness that our estate vineyard can achieve. This is one of our smaller releases that goes entirely to our wine club members. The 2015 Counoise packs a punch aromatically with notes of black pepper, currants, plum, and a touch of anise. The light use of French oak barrels creates a harmonious layer of tannins to help temper the heavy spice on the front palate at first sip. Medium in body, the bright acidity keeps the balance of bold aromatics match up to dramatic and long lasting finish allowing this Counoise to drink well now or through 2020.
