This small area, at the southern tip of the northern Rhone, produces meaty, power packed beasts of wines!
About & Food Matching
Still very traditional in style, there is nothing subtle here! Don’t look for elegance, these wines are big, powerful and need years to soften. They can be amazing, given time, as the intense tannins begin to soften. Think black fruits, mocha, leather and tar!
Style: big and powerful, strappingly full on, and need time to soften, but very traditional, rustic and intense
Good with: nothing subtle! Go for big flavours, hearty stews, venison, and full flavoured red meats.
