2016 Chasseur de Cailloux Côtes du Rhône Rouge

Chasseur de Cailloux, or pebble hunter, was the name that came to mind when we discovered this vivid, juicy Rhône blend of 70% Syrah, 15% Grenache and 15% Carignan. The vineyards of the Southern Rhône Valley are covered with thousands of round pebbles that capture the warm sunshine of the day and radiate that warmth during the night, resulting in perfectly ripened grapes and wines with freshness and focus. Exhibiting flavors of red plum and blueberry, this delightful and food-friendly wine should be matched with spice-rubbed pork chops.
