Love the peppery garrigue and dryness to this southern Rhone blend. Bay leaf and thyme are most dominant on the nose...

Hot stone, blackberry, cassis with hints of citrus. Dry and a bit austere.

Very typical southern French wine. Ripe (but not over ripe) fruit, black pepper, and herbs. Quite approachable but enough tannin to keep the wine from being flabby. Not overly complex, but well made and authentic. Reasonably priced. tasted June 2015.
