Michel Chapoutier is one of the Rhone’s top high-end producers, but he’s also fond of crafting delicious wines from neighbouring regions at delicious prices. His “˜Marius’ delivers pepperiness from the Syrah grape, and delicious flavours and vitality of Grenache. My favourite yummy/lively combination in red wine. Perfect with any nourishing food, and company. What a bargain trip to the south of France.
