2016 Brunier Henri Le Pigeoulet Rouge
A blend of 80% Grenache, Syrah, Carignan, and Cinsault, The name "Le Pigeoulet" is derived from the foothills of the noble La Crau plateau. A quintessential Provençal quaffer from the Brunier brothers, from their plots of vines in both the Côtes du Ventoux and Côtes du Rhône. Plums, cherries, and herbs interplay with intense notes on the nose. The same dark fruits dominate the mouth. Fresh, soft and ripe, with good density and soft tannins, all leading up to a nice, long finish.
