Superstar winemaker Philippe Cambie helped fashion this blend from up-and-coming Rhône estate Domaine La Collière.
What You Need To Know
Some of the world’s greatest wines come from France’s Rhône Valley, and in a spectacular vintage like 2010, they can deliver amazing quality at relatively sane prices. This spicy, sultry red blend is a terrific example: It comes from the vineyards of Georges Perrot, located around the town of Rasteau. The Perrot family sold their grapes to a large, well-known négociant (wine merchant) for years before teaming up in 2002 with Philippe Cambie, one of the Rhône’s best-known winemaking consultants. Like most southern Rhône reds, it’s based on the Grenache grape, which gives the wine its plump body and deep berry flavors. A touch of Syrah lends peppery spice.
