Description

Ravoire et FilsLa Poulardiere is made from the best cuvées of Roger and Olivier Ravoire who own several renowned estates throughout the Rhone Valley (Crozes Hermitage, Cote Rotie, Chateauneuf du Pape, Gigondas). This award winning Cotes du Rhone comes from their domaine located on the high garrigues of Sarrians, not far from Vacqueyras in the southern Rhone, near Chateauneuf du Pape. The vineyards lie on the steep foothills of the Vaucluse-Luberon chain of mountains. Mont Ventoux, the Giant of Provence, looms in the far distance.

La PoulardiereThe garrigue is home to wild lavender, thyme, juniper and rosemary which grow on the sunbleached limestone rock. These fragrant herbs are often reflected in the aromas of the Rhone wines. Grenache thrives here and is well suited to the windy conditions brought across the landscape by the Mistral. Syrah has long been a star of the red Rhone wines and lends structure to the blend.

La Poulardiere is really versatile with food and stands up to spices – it matches North African cusine well and is great with tagines. It’s fantastic with roast duck and perfect with game such as pheasant, pigeon, grouse and venison. Hearty dishes also suit this complex Cotes du Rhone so try it with cassoulet, marinaded meats and rich braised dishes.

    Heard about this on the grapevine so bought a couple of bottles to try. We really enjoyed it so we are recommending it here. [NB Originally posted 16.02.15]
