This is a more unique style of Rhone wine. The Mistral winds are stronger in this part of the Rhone, which puts more strain on the vines and in turn makes the wine more complex. There is plenty of fruit on this wine, but the real drive is the drive of earth on the palate. This is a savory wine that really shows off the terroir of the vineyards.
