France — Midi • $25.95 • 89/100

This blend of Syrah, Grenache and Carrignan is from Michel Chapoutier’s Bila-Haut property in the Côtes du Roussillon. The wine is rather deep red in colour, with ripe and slightly baked cherry and plum fruit, supplemented by notes of violets and dusty garrigue. The slightly elevated alcohol gives the palate a hint of warmth, balanced by robust acidity and complemented by fine tannins that persist into the pleasant finish. This is a crowd-pleasing full-bodied wine, with modest wood influence and plenty of warm, juicy fruit. • Tasted 2017-04-01 • LCBO id#643239 • Find it at your nearest LCBOPHILIPPE DANDURAND WINES LTD.
