A Best Buy
TASTING NOTE: Lovely, evolving, classic southern Rhône aromatics are on display in this sharp value from Montfaucon, while the palate delivers ripe, succulent, fleshy red and black fruit, black pepper, wild herbs and more in the regional idiom. It has class and finesse above the generic appellation and moderate price. I love the supple but succulent texture and fine length, too.
