Just went to trade some of my Tesco ClubCard vouchers so that I could "double up" but they have now stopped that promo, absolutely gutted. :(

Storage instructions: This wine is ideal for drinking now but can be kept for up to 8 years.

You'd better find a special occasion soon then, or you'll be putting it on your chips!

They discounted a different Chateau-neuf last year. I'm no expert but I think it's had a couple of bad years. The discounted bottle from last year tasted like 4 quid bottle of plonk. I'd like to hear someone's opinion who's tasted this.

Not had this one (whatever year it is) but I think you're right. I normally stick around the £6 mark (proper £6 mind, not Hady's Crest reduced from a Tenner - mugs) but like to by CNDP for special occasions. 2005 was OK but not rated much since then TBH.

Only IMHO though so no flames please

Chateauneuf Du Pape is an area, not just one wine, and while usually at least Ok can often be nowt special. Needs some research on wine spcialist sites to check if this particular one is worth 8 quid a bottle - very few are worth the theoretical full price of 16! Drinkable ones were in Sainsers for about 6 quid 10 years ago.

Had to laugh at this bit:
Regional info: The mythical terroir of Châteauneuf-du-Pape

"Mythical" !!! I'm pretty sure that region really does exist!

It's a 2006 vintage, according to website. Below is a description of the 2006 vintage.

Chateauneuf du Pape 2006 vintage
This is the press release about the 2006 vintage from the Chateauneuf-du-Pape growers association. For more details about Beaucastel and the Perrin wines in 2006, please click here.

Even with a rainfall deficit, the maturation conditions were ideal. With this 2006 harvest, Châteauneuf-du-Pape winemakers sign the 8th very good year out of 9 vintages !

Meteorological datas

From the meteorological point of view, the first nine months of 2006 were marked by rainfalls under the normal season level and by an excellent shinning.

More precisely, the 2006 vintage is characterised by the thermal gap between the months of July and August, by well targeted but rather few rainfalls (368 mm of rain against 450 mm for a normal year, more especially rains of mid-July and mid-August), and finally by an excellent sunshine (2.378 hours of sunshine against 2.993 in average). It is known that temperature differences and cool nights, during the end of summer, are favourable factors for the synthesis of polyphenols and aromatic precursors, so essential for the elaboration of rich and balanced wines. The very few rainfalls of the summer (58 mm of rain against 99 for a normal year) have permitted the grapes to mature in excellent sanitary conditions.

Except for some few storms followed by strong winds (Mistral) during September, we can say that meteorological conditions were once again optimum, allowing Châteauneuf-du-Pape winemakers, to vinify a great vintage.

2006’s vintage characteristics

Even though some white and syrah grapes had to be harvest in early September, some late plots of Mourvèdre and Grenache had sometimes to wait until the beginning of October to reach their full phenolic maturity.

The maturity is a particularly important factor for the final quality of the wine, that Châteauneuf-du-Pape winemakers tend to master in order to optimise each vintage potential. Last devatting took place in late October, when the wine were nearly finished, even for the malolactic fermentation, easily started by a favourable cool after season. The finished wines have beautiful generosity, deep colour, fragrance of red and black fruits, good balance with mellow and elegant tannins. The good natural acidity of the grapes gives to the wine a certain freshness. It is without a doubt a very qualitative vintage, that some compare to 99, and that inscribes itself in the same line than its predecessors : 2003, 2004 and 2005.

I hated red wine. Then I went on a wine tasting course for work and is was a chateauneuf du pape that was not only the first red wine that i liked, but it also got me hooked on red wine. Would buya a bottle instore to try before buying shed loads tho. just to check.

Bottles from Chateau Neuf Du Pape were available for about £8 for a single 75cl bottle purchse from most supermarkets just before christmas and indeed posted on here for £6 per bottle:

http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/130225/chateauneuf-du-pape-cuvee-julienne-/

This used to be a very rare wine before some wine buff in USA praised it in print and it just caught on. Now demand outstrips the supply of grapes in the very small CNdP area and so they use a bit of sneakiness to bring in the materials to produce and bottle. So, there are some cheaper bottles not quite real (i.e. the rules about regional naming are bent a bit), if you can get a genuine grown and bottled CNdP it's an interestingly different taste. Some cheaper bottles are trading on the name a bit.

I like it. Normal price at Sainsburys seems to be about a tenner, with a Taste The Difference version for £12, and this is the one I pick up when I drink it.

Over in France I've seen it for 6 or 7 euros.

Edit: Checked Sainsburys this morning, they have an £11.99, a £13.49 (Argentiers) and a £19.99 one I haven't seen here before.

great deal, thanks, sizzling, heat added. Bit too heavy for my liking, can only drink a couple of bottles at a time, but very good wine :)
