L'Artisan 2019 Le Grenache Noir


There's a whole lot of juicy vinous pleasure to be found here for under $20. A new release from Languedoc value master Jean-Claude Mas, this has striking packaging to match what is in the bottle. This Pays d'Oc wine is made from quite young vines but speaks with a loud voice with plenty of youthful energy. It is all about the fruit with French and American oak very much in the background behind black fruit flavours and some dark pepper notes. Pair with a steak and kidney casserole or pie for maximum drinking gratification. You'll find it at Dan Murphy stores. $19.95.
