Why the wines from this relatively new appellation (1986) haven't generated the press and prices they deserve remains a mystery, as they are a sun-drenched expression of the harmonious, generous nature of both the Languedoc and Rhone regions, where grapes grown on pebbly, mineral-laden alluvial soils are allowed to mature and develop beautiful aromatic notes and robust, berry-ripe, savory fruit. Even with a tapestry of delicious French rosés on our shelves, it is easy to see why this one has all but disappeared, flush with red berry fruits, dried apricots and delicate spice, held aloft by crisp acidity. Great with a plate of sizzling, hot-pepper prawns!
