Olivier Mousset Côtes du Rhône 2016
The dominant variety here is Grenache which makes for a warming, spicy, rich red with voluptuous soft tannins, and plenty of oomph. This is the kind of red that goes brilliantly with summer barbeques and winter stews alike, and it is soft and easy-going enough to sip on its own, or knock back a glass with pizza or a curry.
