This fragrant, supple red shows just how food-friendly the Grenache-based blends of France’s southern Rhône Valley can be.
What You Need To Know
In France’s southern Rhône Valley, winemakers long ago figured out that Grenache and Syrah make fantastic blending partners: Lush, fruity Grenache softens Syrah’s muscular tannins, while Syrah adds peppery spice and structure. This example comes from Domaine la Millière, a smallish estate in the prestigious Rhône subzone of Châteauneuf-du-Pape that’s owned by the Arnaud family. Fifth-generation winemaker Michel Arnaud is known for the elegance of his wines: While it’s easy to make ripe, hedonistic reds in the Rhône’s sunny climate, Arnaud prefers fresh, food-friendly wines with minimal (or no) oak. Arnaud’s Côtes du Rhône comes from grapes from old vines (vieilles vignes), whose intense flavors give the wine its depth.
