2021 Vin de Pays de Vaucluse Rouge

Selected by Kermit Lynch
Discount Eligible $14.00
SOLD OUT

I love a cool, light-bodied red, but with the arrival of early sunsets and long winter nights, I want to cozy up to one thing: an inky-dark rouge from a rustic terroir. I’m craving wines I can sink my teeth into, ones that deliver all the warmth and character of the sunbaked, shrubby terroir from which they sprang. This Vaucluse rouge, featuring plummy black fruit and surprisingly silky texture, is great with any wintry dish. If you are looking for suggestions, though, try it with flank steak drizzled in chimichurri or a smoky, charred-eggplant ratatouille—perfect for when it’s a bit nippy outside.

Living wines have ups and downs just as people do, periods of glory and dog days, too. If wine did not remind me of real life, I would not care about it so much.
