I need a case of this stat! It's one thing to know that this is the love child of Hervé Souhaut and René-Jean Dard, it's another to know it tastes of one too. The gamay lightens and brightens the Syrah. Add a zippy tingle and some slightly chewy tannins and this is just pure fun to drink! Thanks to @Carla Hine for the recommendation! You know me too well!

Northern Rhône blend that was smoky and surprising. Sultry, too, with a tiny smack of tannin. Perfect with some chill for a summer lift red situation. Very dark in color, not really a light red at all, but drinks like it. Juicy cherry and currant and apple. Wonderful.
