More about this wine from Rhône Valley, France
Pascal Maillet went to college to study Computer Science, but almost overnight he made a huge life course change. In 1993, Maillet and his wife, with little to zero wine experience, purchased an estate. Much to his family and friends' surprise, the couple has built a substantial wine business since the 1990s. Their vineyards are farmed sustainably and all the grapes are harvested by hand.

All you need to know when you see "Côtes du Rhône" is the wine is a blend of classic Rhône varietals that only come from vineyards in a very specific, legally designated portion of the Rhône Valley. So this bottle has a very specific sense of place! The juice is the right combo of fruity (not sweet) and savory. The fruitiness comes from Grenache, which is known for notes of cola and dark cherries, and Syrah is known for being olive-y and a little salty! Together they make the juice sing!

Eating...

This classic french red loves some beef and we're going with a fancy AF meatloaf sammy, but a burger will crush it with this vino too!
