France — Provence • $25.95 • 90/100

The wine is a blend of Grenache and Cinsault, with small amounts of Syrah and Mourvèdre. It is a lighter salmon colour, with pleasant aromas of cherries, raspberries, strawberries and perfumed red apples, graced by floral notes of roses and lavender. The wine is bone-dry, with firm acidity and a medium body. The palate is direct and linear, and the fruit component picks up a subtext of wild rosemary and thyme, and then finishes with a subtle apple skin bitterness. Very good, with the complexity and depth to justify the slightly premium price. • Tasted 2017-06-10 • LCBO id#491100 • Find it at your nearest LCBOTHE LIVING VINE INC. (Agent)
