ADD

Very old vines, an unbelievably rocky terroir, and extreme precision in farming and winemaking make Mille Vignes the source of some delightfully finessed, highly drinkable reds from the Languedoc’s Fitou appellation. Winemaker Valérie Guérin prefers to let the vines and the vineyard site do the talking, so she eschews oak in the cellar and instead carries out all vinifications and aging in tiny fiberglass tanks. Her wines express a shocking purity of fruit: this Grenache is a tender cushion of soft wild cherries and brambly berries, accented by a hint of resinous garrigue herbs. It is intended for current consumption—no need to wait! –Anthony Lynch
