2015 Julie Brosselin Rue de la Peste
Rue de la Peste is a blend of Carignan and Syrah which at 12.5% is a fresh wine that captures the spirit of the Mediterranean so much better than the heavier, high alcohol wines for which the Languedoc is better known. Montpeyroux, where Julie lives is quite close to Saint Chinian which is the "spiritual" home of the Carignan grape variety. It is in the rugged terrain around this area where the grape variety thrives. The Syrah gives it strength on the finish to ensure that this is a well-rounded wine which has been cleverly blended to bring out the best qualities of each of the varieties.
