Why do we love it?
When the most ancient and enchanting Chateaux of the Rhone, Saint Cosme, decides to buy a small winery in Vinsobres, there must be a very important reason, and you are looking at it right now, it’s the Chateau de Rouanne Vinsobres. The 91 points of the Wine Spectator are justifying their choice.

Saint Cosme was established in southern Rhone, outside Gigondas, in 1490. We are talking about a family business since Louis Barruol is at the helm of the winery and he is the 14th generation. They emphasize the salience of terroir and old vines, with ancient know-how and organic farming. Louis Barruol believes that there are many fantastic vineyards in the region, with unique soil and terroir, that require effort and time but the resulting wines totally worth it. One of those is the Chateau Rouanne. Its vines are about 50 years old and were planted with the Massal Selection method. This means that they selected the best old vines and from them, they took cuttings for replanting the new vineyards, in order for the final wines to have an impressive complexity and better expression of the terroir. Chateau Rouanne Vinsobres incorporates all of the above into a blend of Grenache Rouge (50%), Syrah (40%), and Mourvedre (10%). The varieties are co-fermented in concrete tanks with indigenous yeasts and mature there for 18 months. It is bottled unfiltered and ready to impress you.

Chateau Rouanne Vinsobres is one of the wines that if you try them once you will ask for them forever.

VINSOBRES 2018 - CHATEAU DE ROUANNE

PAIR IT

with slow roasted lamb with Provencal herbs, duck fillet with red fruit sauce, beef in wine sauce and papardelle with wild boar ragout.

Wild boar casserole with tagliatelle pasta

  • 1 kilogram of wild boar
  • 1 carrot coarsely chopped
  • 1 celery coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 bunch of fresh onions finely chopped
  • 1/2 bunch of parsley finely chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 3 tbsps. of mustard
  • 3 tbsps. of lemon juice
  • 5 allspice berries
  • 1 bay leaf
  • Salt and pepper
  • 200 g olive oil
  • 250 ml red wine (preferably xinomavro)
  • 500 g of tagliatelle

 

Cut the wild boar in portions. Put all the ingredients in a bowl, except olive oil and pasta. Marinate for at least 12 hours.

When we are ready for cooking, remove the boar from the marinade, drain it to leave the many liquids and sauté with the oil until it gets golden-brown. Add the marinade and lower the heat to simmer for 30 minutes.

Transfer them all to the casserole and put it in a preheated oven, at 150 ° C. Stir regularly to keep liquids from sticking. If more liquids are needed, add some vegetable broth.

Boil the pasta according to the instructions (preferably al dente).

Garnish with a little chopped parsley over the plate.
