Deep salmon hued, this dry Côtes de Provence is a blend of Syrah, Grenache, Carignan and Cinsault. Grapes came from numerous clay and limestone studded plots in the heart of the Var, clustered within the communes of Cabasse sur Issole and Flassans sur Issole. Gently pressed, cool and in stainless (the typical Provencal formula), this is juicy, bright cherry, pomegranate, raspberry and orange on a crunchy frame. The attack is a bit punchy and the finish short, though is a worthy, refreshing pour this summer. Try with lightly spiced curry or aioli dipped seafood.
