Sablet. A sensuous Southern Rhone wine from one of the most romantic villages in France. 

What a wonderful experience it was to have a vertical tasting of Sablet wines all the way back to 1990 here. And great to meet Jean Autran from Domaine de Piaugier.
Outstanding wines of Syrah, Grenache, and Mourvedre varietals. Rustic yet elegant, rich, yet sometimes delicate. An orgy of flavour in your glass.

Sablet is a commune in the Vaucluse department in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region in southeastern France. It is a fortified Provençal village founded in the 800's and rich in history.

Great little drive back to our B&B through misty blackness punctuated by little galaxies of light, each a village nestled in the Alpine foothills here in the Southern Rhone.
