Bargain hunters should seek out this Provençal beauty, which is fresh, snappy and modest in terms of power and mouthfeel. The flavor profile is entirely ripe and clean, with mounds of red fruit and just the right touches of toasty oak. That same toastiness comes up on the finish, which is graced by light tannins. What an easy wine to drink; a sure-fire winner by the glass. Best Buy. —M.S.
