Chateau de Marjolet, Cotes-Du-Rhone Villages "Laudun", Southern Rhone, France 2018

{organic} 70% Grenache, 30% Syrah

BLACK RASPBERRY & CASSIS, SPICE & WHITE PEPPER, SWEET EARTH

Like the best producers of the southern Rhone Valley, Chateau de Marjolet crafts wines which are deft performers of a balancing act, finding that middle ground between power and finesse. This red from the village of Laudun brings a restrained clarity of dark fruit together with hedonistic pepper, spice, and a satisfying earthy richness which is exotic, elegant, and unmistakably Mediterranean. The Pontaud family, champions of terroir-driven wines and environmentally sound viticulture, have here brought to life the perfect Chateauneuf-du-Pape understudy.

Serving Suggestion: Lamb or beef w/ prunes and olives braised slowly in red wine and served with mashed potatoes. Punjabi curry w/ puréed tomatoes, cinnamon, & black cardamom.
