Got to try this in the office. This an awesome wine for the price. Chapoutier is a bit of a rock star.

This is an excellent value wine that shows some nice spicy, warm elements that are typical of this region. Although not as good as the "Occultum Lapidem" (reserve) bottling, it still has a full flavour and good finish.
