Serving Chateau Sacré-Coeur with Wine, Food, Pairing Tips:
Chateau Sacre Coeur is best served at 15.5 degrees Celsius, 60 degrees Fahrenheit. The cool, almost cellar temperature gives the wine more freshness and lift. Chateau Sacre Coeur is best paired with all types of classic meat dishes, veal, pork, beef, lamb, duck, game, roast chicken, roasted, braised and grilled dishes.
Chateau Sacre Coeur is also good when matched with Asian dishes, hearty fish courses like tuna, mushrooms and pasta.
“The nose is fruity and offers a fine tension. It reveals notes of crushed Boysen berry, pulpy cassis, small notes of pulpy strawberry associated with touches of small blue fruits, cornflower, liquorice as well as touches of sweet spices, lilas and vanilla pod. The palate s fruity, gourmand, well-balanced and offers an acidulous frame, juiciness and tension. On the palate this wine expresses notes of juicy cassis, juicy blackberry, small notes of cornflower, lily associated with touches of pulpy raspberry, small red berries as well as fine hints of rose, zan and nutmeg/spices. Good length.”
“Sweet spices on the nose, cinnamon, fig, pomegranate and dried fruit. Succulent and juicy, this is fun, slightly playful with a focus on the bright red fruits – energetic. Tannins support the fruit, they are clearly present but this is lighter framed with strawberries and cream on the mid palate. Lots to like.” – G. Hindle (January 2022)
