Counoise is one of the 13 sanctioned varieties used in Châteauneuf-du-Pape and is most commonly used as a blending grape to add complexity and focus. We at Alexandria Nicole Cellars feel that this grape thrives on its own when able to reach peak ripeness.  This is precisely what our estate vineyard provides. Bright ruby in color, this wine shows lively aromatics of cherry, strawberry, cranberry and rose petal with a touch of spice. Juicy notes of strawberry, cherry, and light plum on the palate, are backed with medium acidity and a lush tannin profile, bringing this dazzling fruit-forward wine together in an elegant finish. Pair this wine with grilled or roasted meats, or try pairing with tuna nicoise.
