A consistently brilliant wine and a great value from importer Eric Solomon, working with the brilliant oenologist of the Rhône Valley, Philippe Cambie and the Bernard family, who own the large Domaine La Garrigue. This is one of their least expensive, but impressive wines.

-Domaine La Garrigue is set in the heart of the Vacqueyras appellation area (Southern Côtes du Rhône), in the Vaucluse department of France. The estate buildings are just 2.5 km from the main village, on a plateau called Les Garrigues. The estate was created in 1850, and has always been worked by the same family, spanning 6 generations. The Bernard family has always worked in respect of tradition, crafting authentic natural wines that are typical of the terroirs they came from.
