"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 where you pay less for the regional reputation and still receive much more from the wine. 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. Post arrival price will be: $23. TODAY'S 15% OFF PRE-DEPARTURE OFFER: $20 per bottle in any dozen($22 if less than 12 bottles ordered). This wine is very nearly sold out from the vineyard too, so make hay as re-ordering at a later date won't be possible.
