2013 Jean-Louis Denois "Les Garrigues" Vin d'Pays D'Oc
Review Date: 12-31-2015
Every wine that I have had from Denois has been very good. The 2013 continues this line up of hits. Besides being reasonably priced, it is delicious and will go well with food or will be enjoyable alone. There are interesting and inviting aromas of red fruits with subtle savory undertones. In the mouth, this theme continues with red fruit flavors and some savory notes. The Denois Les Garrigues is a little rustic but well worth a try.
