Le Gras C'est La Vie, Famille de Boel IGP Méditerranée, 75cl
Le gras c’est la vie’ is a showstopper of a wine, with freshness and vivacity, as well as extraordinary value. Coming from a young plot of vines in the southern side of the Rhone Valley, this is a hand-harvested blend of Carignan, Grenache, and Caladoc (a cross between Malbec and Grenache). A delicate touch and a natural fermentation in stainless steel are the key factors that play into this wine’s bright approach, so that even after only a few months time in tank, the finished wine is ready for the bottle and immediate consumption. A bright and brambly nose lead to a palate that is exuberant with red and black fruits, full of spicy texture, and has just the right amount of meaty grip to play well with foods of many kinds or to simply invite the next sip.
