Pierre Jaurant, Grenache Noir, IGP Pays d'Oc, Languedoc-Roussillion, France 2020
(at Tate Modern, London, 18 May 2021)
Drinking Window: 2021 - 2023
Grenache lovers will find much to like in this well-priced bottle. It mixes the ripe cherry fruit sweetness and violet florals the variety is known for, along with a pleasant earthy rusticity and grippy tannins on the supple palate. Easy drinking and perfect match slightly chilled with barbecued lamb chops and aubergine.
