My pick for best value in Languedoc-Roussillon. Hands down. The blend is 50% Grenache, 30% Syrah, 20% Cinsault, and 10% Carignan. It's built with a little more Grenache than the Bleu Velours, but absolutely outperforms its price point. The nose is full of smoky and gamy notes. The palate is all black cherry, with really sumptuous fruit and charming rustic tannins. Totally unique and one of the wines I recommend most for those looking to explore the Languedoc.
