It is a perfect example of what an inexpensive wine from the Southern Rhone valley should taste like. If you like Châteauneuf-du-Pape on special occasions you will like this as an everyday wine.
Bright, black cherry and subtle earth notes on the nose with spice emerging with a little aeration. Some green leafy aromas often found in rustic, inexpensive wines. Light to medium weight on the palate, the barest hint of oak and a very dry, slightly sour finish.
A blend of Grenache, Syrah, Carignan, and Cinsault, it lacks concentration and length but is very easy to drink and the ample acidity will make this a good partner for a variety of foods.
Rustic charm and very affordable, this wine is made by the Perrin family who make the highly-regarded Chateau Beaucastel.
