A celebration of the poet Anselme Mathieu, who was a 19th century Provençal patriot, this wine is labeled both in the Provençal language as well as French. All this stuff surrounding the wine doesn't detract from its fine quality, its range of plums, black currants and bitter cherries and its intense ripe structure. The dryness at the back promises long aging. Imported by Rhône Valley Importing.
