I have a bottle of the famous Pegau from CDP in my cellar so when I saw this little brother- I had to try it. A blend of Grenache 60%, Syrah 20%, Mourvèdre 10%, Cinsault 10% it is opaque ruby. Nose is medium intense with raspberry, red plum, black pepper, game, black currant, vanilla and clove. The palate has medium (+) tannins, medium acidity and medium body. The fruit flavors are medium intensity and carry through to a decent length finish that is laced with grippy tannins. This is a young, delicious Rhone wine that can be drunk young or cellar till 2030. 91 points gets this $15 bottle 5 stars. Drink with rustic foods, stews or Venison. Salut….
