Luc Baudet Luxe Calme Et Volupté Rouge 2018
A Rhône Valley gem
A beautiful blend of distinctly delicious grapes, this full-bodied red wine from Rhône Valley is a true delight. It’s a wine that showcases the quality of its terroir, and the passion and care of its winegrowers.
TASTING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR
Made with Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Merlot, and Syrah grapes, the Luc Baudet Luxe, Calme et Volupte Rouge is a wonderful addition to your collection. Rich and intense, it has a deep red color with hints of purple.
On the nose, it gives aromas of chocolate and black currant, with notes of blueberry and oak. And on the palate, anise, oak, and cherry.
PREPARATION AND PAIRINGS
A good steak or lamb dish also pairs beautifully with this Clos des Centenaires classic. Try any from our Rangers Valley, and Roaring Forties line-up. A good roast chicken with some crispy potatoes is also a great contender.
A good fudgy brownie or a dark chocolate cake enjoyed with a glass of Luxe, Calme et Volupte is the perfect meal-ender.
BETWEEN LAND AND SEA
Between hundred-year-old olive trees and stately oak trees will you find Le Clos des Centenaires. With nature on their side—climate, deep soils, pebbles formed by the Rhône, sands, and clay, the vines that take root and grow are powerful and complex. They give grapes of magnificent quality, like delicate gifts as thanks for its careful and respectful cultivation.
These grapes are then meticulously chosen to create wines that reflect the splendor of its surroundings, and the passion of its makers.
Store unopened red wines in a cool, dry, and dark place safe from constant vibration. Keep your bottle horizontal in a wine rack or cellar to retain the moistness of the cork. The ideal temperature for storage is between 16 to 18°C. Once opened, a bottle will be good for 3 to 5 days standing upright in the refrigerator.
