Domaine Treloar le Ciel Vide Shiraz Grenache 2017 from Roussillon
"Le Ciel Vide" 2017, 80% Shiraz and 20% Grenache. This is a ludicrously good "entry level" red and brings home the point that if you want the best value Rhône-style reds in France then you are far better off shopping in Roussillon. I've never seen a Côtes-du-Rhône that could compete with this: spicy aromatic intensity, controlled, complex, and savoury, while the palate is structured and satisfyingly long. This is a complete wine in every sense that will cellar nicely for up to ten years too.
