Tasting notes on the wine: 

"A blend of 30 percent grenache with a 10-day, whole-cluster maceration of syrah, ‘Gourmandise’ is silken and saline, with notes of licorice and iris perceptible amid the purple fruit. It’s perfectly normal for a young red wine to have a mild effervescence on the mid-palate. If that effervescence isn’t for you, swirl the glass for a minute or so and it should disappear.” — Aaron Ayscough

About the winemaker: 

"France’s Ardèche region is a family destination for hiking, rafting, and other activities just north of the Southern Rhone. It’s also the source of some of the greatest values in French natural wine. Thomas and Jean-Daniel Ozil are among the latest generation of Ardéchois vignerons to embrace radical natural winemaking." — Aaron Ayscough
