2020 Cotes-du-Rhone-Villages Cairanne Rouge "Vieilles Vignes" (Vitalis, Domaine La)

Domaine La Vitalis, Cotes-du-Rhone-Villages Cairanne Rouge "Vieilles Vignes," Southern Rhone, France 2020

{organic} 60% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 10% Carignan, 5% Mourvedre, 5% Cinsault


Cairanne is one of the brightest points in the Southern Rhone and, despite its increasingly lofty reputation, somehow continues to remain a source for some of the valley's best values. Forged predominantly from 100 year old Grenache vines and Syrah planted more than half a century ago, this offering from Patrice Jubian makes a superb ambassador for this corner of Mediterranean France, layering the concentrated black and purple fruit associated with these varietals and the coveted garrigue-ish aromatics of the "méridional" countryside.

Serving Suggestion: Indian-inspired burrito of spicy minced goat w/ curried lentils, onions, & tomato sauce wrapped in roti bread w/ cilantro & avocado. Juicy sausage w/ paprika, fennel, & garlic w/ black rice & field peas.
