ADD

There’s nothing quite like old-vine Mourvèdre grown in rugged, rocky limestone to illustrate the notoriously rich, colorful spirit of southern France. At the same time delightfully rustic and generous in its profound concentration of fruit, this Pic Saint Loup belts out a southern tune as soulful as the local “singing” accent. You’ll want to fire up the grill, snip some rosemary branches (the ones in our back parking lot fit the bill), and prepare a nice hunk of beast before you put away the pastis and sink your teeth into this deep, burly, blackberry-scented darkness of a wine. Mourvèdre of this breed is no stranger to aging, so put a few more bottles aside and see what happens. –Anthony Lynch
