I haven't done a wine review in a month.

La Grange de Piaugier Côtes du Rhône 2007

It's a traditional french wine.  No web site, no extra info on the label.  In the US, we're used to seeing the grape variatal instead of the region.  Some research has led me to believe that the grape in this wine is granache.  I like my granache to be a bit more lighter than this wine.

That's fascinating, what does it taste like?  A little bit of berry, not too much tannin.  Kind of earthy.  The sophisticated palate appreciates a glass of dirt.  This is better known as terroir.

Cost: $12.99
Grade: C+
