WINE ADVOCATE – 86 pts – 31 OCT 2011 – #197

One of the finest values in inexpensive, quaffing/bistro-styled wines. A Vin de Pays from the Vaucluse area. Perhaps the best example of this cuvee the Brunier brothers have produced to date. The wine reveals a miduim ruby color along with copious raspberry and cherry notes intermixed with a hint of olive/tapenade, crisp acidity and a medium-bodied, zesty mouthfeel. Drink it over the next year.
