    The 2006 Les Baux de Provence combines 38% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Carignan, 20% Grenache, and 9% Syrah. Carignan has seldom, if ever, approached so large a percentage, but its old vines manage to withstand the ongoing local drought. Cassis, blackberry, Provencal herbs, and wood smoke in the nose lead to a correspondingly pungent, ripe and particularly bright palate and a penetrating finish redolent of resinous lavender and rosemary and faintly bitter black fruits. This impressively concentrated rendition of Gourgonnier - only 13% in alcohol, interestingly - is slightly rustic in its tannins but will prove exceptionally versatile at table. Typically, the wine is at its best for 2-4 years although it will often hold longer.

    This fresh, fruity red features plenty of backbone to the red plum, berry and currant flavors, with hints of tobacco on the finish. Drink now through 2011.

    This robust red blend is a crowd favorite that is drinking exceedingly well in its youth. Chock-full of dark berries with a touch of anise, this wine gets a little support from an approachable tannic structure.

    Winemaker's Notes:

    Luc and Lucienne’s wines combine the richness and intensity of a top Rhone or Bordeaux with a crystal-clear and unmistakable expression of Provençal soil.
