2014 Gilles Azzoni Fable rhône valley, france
$35

Pretty good name combo.
First bit French, second bit Italian. Gilles has been on the natural scene forever - he's from Paris and studied winemaking in the late 70s. After working all over the place, he settled in the Ardeche, part of the Rhône Valley. The Fable is a blend of Grenache, Shiraz and Merlot. For a completely no adds wine it is surprisingly refined. Drinks like a clean, cool climate Shiraz. Would definitely give the Northern Rhone a run for its money.
