Provence isn't all about rosé, as evidenced by this fine red. It begins with grapy, plummy aromas and then delivers a smooth package of plum and cherry fruit in the mouth. The tail end is dark, refined and handsome, with ample depth and power. And all the while vital acidity keeps it fresh and lively. Classy and eminently drinkable. Best Buy. —M.S.
