Tasting notes on the wine: 

Its low tannins and slight hint of salt and effervescence (paired with notes of cherries, raspberries, and a whisper of herbs) allow this wine to be enjoyed on its own. But if you lean into the literal meaning of ‘Gourmandise’ (French for gluttony, naturally) and open it up alongside duck breast, your night is better than 99% of the rest of the world’s at that moment. — Max & Cody

About the winemaker: 

Berries and peppercorns! A bright blend of syrah and grenache, 'Gourmandise' from the brothers Ozil in the Ardèche region within the Northern Rhône is everything a red bistro wine should be. The Ozils are part of the dynamic, thrilling new breed of winemakers in the Ardèche, and Gourmandise is our favorite cuvée from them so far.  — Max & Cody
