Michel Arnaud of Domaine de Milliere is known to be a top quality Chateauneuf-du-Pape producer. His Merlot vineyards sit right at the foot of Mont Redon in the region. The soil is a clay base with sand. Perfume of plum, cassis, dark cherry with hints of cedar and pungent spice. This well-balanced wine has a clean palate with soft tannins. Very easy drinking.
Food Pairing: very versatile from pizza to BBQ to rustic bistro dishes, etc.
