The unbelievable, delicious values streaming out of the South of France right now seem to be endless. Dark, juicy, ripe Grenache and Syrah driven wines that cost under $20 and drink as if they are $40. This region is bursting at the seams with talent, quality, and value. This week’s WOW comes from a small village, Tautavel, located in Roussillon. The estate ideally sits between the Pyrenees and the Mediterranean. Looking for something for winter roasts and stews? Look no further! We have found your December house wine. Cheers!

91 Points, The Wine Enthusiast: “This is an immediately attractive and approachable wine, with direct and intense aromas and flavors of black cherry, plum and boysenberry accented by notes of sweet smoke, mocha and pepper. Firm yet approachable, this is well-balanced with structured tannins and ample acidity. Drink from 2015-2018.” Editor’s Pick!
