"The Grand Veneur 2011 Cotes du Rhone Les Champauvins is a blend of 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% Mourvedre from a vineyard just across the border of Chateauneuf du Pape. Its dense ruby hue is followed by aromas of lavender, black cherries, black currants, loamy soil and spice box. This medium to full-bodied, silky textured, elegant effort is hedonistic as well as satisfying. Enjoy it over the next several years."
