If you’ve read our newsletter much, you have probably heard us rave about Sylvain Fadat’s Montpeyroux—certainly among the best values in our portfolio, buy it by the case, etc. All of this holds true with the 2014 vintage, but what has changed is that Sylvain has coaxed newfound elegance out of the Mourvèdre, Carignan, Syrah, Grenache, and Cinsault grapes that make up this cuvée. A combination of vintage effect with gentler winemaking that seeks more freshness and less brute tannin, it has yielded this lively, crunchy, medium-bodied red reminiscent of violets, herbs, and dusty stone. Enjoy it over the next five or ten years. –Anthony Lynch
