Provence Red Wine
It could be the terroir or it could be just romantic association, but Provence wines are so, well, Provençale. Andrew Jefford says the wines tend to sell on the purchaser's memory of “love on a bed of pine needles rather than the lure of raw flavour”. The best examples, however, are sun-burnished and exude magical Mediterranean aromas and will coo to your coeur: the reds, particularly from Bandol, reveal dominant nosenotes
of pine-trees, sandstone, resin, terebinth and leather, and the Mourvèdre grapes, being from vines adjacent to the sea, give a salty-herby green-olive flavour to the palate.
