More about this wine from Vaucluse, France
Cuvée Jean-Paul Vaucluse is produced in the beautiful Pay de Vaucluse region in France’s southern Rhone Valley. Blends of Syrah and Grenache are typical to the Southern Rhone and make up the most of the wine coming from the area. But these wines are just produced and exported, the locals live and breathe the wines of Pay de Vaucluse, and you can enjoy them too. Live like a local and enjoy this red with some hearty rich foods.

This bottle hits the perfect balance of light and heavy. It has the heavy quality of the tannin, but the small bit of acidity really brightens it up making it pleasant to drink. Savory with dark fruit and lots of spice. Cinnamon, pepper, and bright red cherries. This wine also has an earthiness to it that smells like walking down the side of stables lined with bushes of ripe blackberries. The balance of heavier tannins with a decent acidity make this wine great for spring and in between weather.
