Cotes du Roussillon Villages. 13%
Sold in a rather pointless wooden box I bought this wine in a French supermarket for about $15. The box being supposed to signal quality but I think it actually puts most people off buying it.
70% Syrah 20% Carignan 10% Grenache.
It is a warm soft wine. A bit lacking in character. Worth looking out for future vintages if the pricing stays low.
