A great little value, the 2021 Vin De France Grenache is a juicy, pure Grenache offering wonderful raspberry and strawberry fruits as well as some peppery garrigue notes. Medium-bodied, balanced, charming, and just undeniably delicious, it’s about as good a bistro wine as there is. Drink it over the coming couple of years.
