Operation Dragoon Cotes du Rhone 2016
70% Grenache, 30% Syrah. This wine by famed Rhone Vigneron Pierre Gaillard is in honor of the Allied invasion of Nazi-occupied Southern France in August 1944, which liberated the area from Marseille to Dijon in just 4 weeks. Get fresh wild strawberries and herbs de Provence with a hint of smoked meat and lavender on the finish. Fine tannins and bright acid. A very clean expression of the Rhone Valley.
