From: Southern Rhone, France
Varietals: Grenache, Syrah
Taste: Freshly crushed red and black fruits, sweet spices, and lavender floral notes greet the nose. On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied and fresh with silky smooth tannins. Black cherry liqueur, ripe black plum and black raspberry flavors linger in this wine that exhibits considerable elegance and finesse. Made from a blend of Syrah and old Grenache vines, this charmingly chic Cotes du Rhone rouge is a fantastically versatile red for everyone in the family who loves wine.
Pairing: Extremely food-friendly, this red pairs well with everything from grilled vegetables, stews, roasts, braised meats, heartier fish like tuna or salmon (just avoid a bunch of citrus in the sauce and lean into more savory preparations), and curries that aren’t too spicy. Today, we’re sharing a recipe for Bo Kho (Vietnamese Braised Beef Stew) by David Tanis. It’s delicious any time of the year & will highlight all those lovely fruit and spice notes in this wine.
About. Font du Loup has been in the Melia family since 1942 and is now run by the extremely charming Anne Charlotte Melia-Bachas with her husband Laurent and the help of consultant Philippe Cambie. Font du Loup has roughly 20 hectares (organically farmed), including holdings in the La Crau and Font du Loup vineyards, and is planted on mostly sandy soil with vines that reach 100 years old. It is located in one of the coolest appellation places with slow ripening of the grapes. The wines are made in an elegant, pure, pretty style and are as warm and inviting as the good Anne-Charlotte and Laurent.
