France — Rhône • $18.95 • 89/100

Bright pinky-red in colour — very much Tavel rather than Provence! The lively nose suggests strawberries, raspberries, red apples and cherries, with lemon zest and apple blossoms. Fully dry, there is a little more weight and alcohol in this style, although acidity is firm enough to balance it all. Fruit is rich and ripe on the palate, with a little more lemon than the nose suggests, and a whisper of tannins that adds interest. Pair with heavier summer foods, or save a bottle or two for winter feasts. Well-priced. • Tasted 2017-07-22 • LCBO id#701318 • Find it at your nearest LCBO • STEN O. KJELLBERG (Agent)
