ADD

A Syrah-based blend from rugged, windswept slopes of limestone and marl, Causse du Bousquet is the perfect introduction to Saint-Chinian. Isabelle and Matthieu Champart have called these Languedoc hills home since 1976, when they moved to Isabelle’s family’s farm and began tending the vines that surround the property. In addition to being a skilled vigneron, Isabelle is a fantastic cook, and the wines truly shine alongside simple Mediterranean dishes from fresh ingredients—just as she would serve guests on her terrace, overlooking the vineyards. This full-bodied red shows off the house style and can even age for several years, if you desire. Rustic yet remarkably polished, Causse du Bousquet is inky dark with notes of blackberry and a whole lotta soul. –Anthony Lynch
