Une Tranche Sudiste, Phillipe Jambon 2017 (Rhone, France)
This is 85% Grenache and 15% Syrah grown organically by Denis Tardieu in Vaucluse, southern Rhone, then made completely naturally by Phillipe Jambon in Beaujolais, bottled unfiltered with minimal sulfur added. This is a bottled hug with spiced dark fruit and velvety tannins. Make this your go-to Cotes du Rhone.. while you can. Phillipe's Tranche wines are one-off projects that he makes with like-minded friends in tiny quantities.
