Bieler Père et Fils La Jassine Red Blend, 750 ml Bottle
Bieler Père et Fils La Jassine Red Blend has aromas of raspberry, black cherry, garrigue (rosemary, thyme), chocolate, and tobacco which builds and concentrates on the palate. The mouthfeel is rich without being heavy and maintains freshness thanks to the hilltop fruit and northern latitude. Tannins are soft, round and inviting. The 2020 vintage received 89 points from James Suckling for the September 2022 issue. Pair this French red wine with savory grilled meats and grilled vegetables. This red blend is made of 60% Grenache and 40% Syrah. 100% of the fruit is from vineyards owned and farmed by the Lavau family in the Village of Valréas in the Southern Rhône Valley. As such, the wine can be called Côtes du Rhône Villages, as opposed to simply Côtes du Rhône. This wine was fermented and a small percentage of the wine, about 3%, was aged in new French oak with the rest staying in concrete.
