CÔtes de Roussillon-Villages, France / $19-$20 Retail

Neslted on the Mediterranean coast between southern Rhône and Spain, Roussillon is one of France's most dynamic viticultural areas. This bottling from sub-appellation Latour de France is a blend of 70 percent Carignan, 20 percent Syrah and 10 percent Grenache. In the glass, aromas of ripe red and dark fruit mingle with hints of cocoa and licorice, leading into intense red and black berry fruit, spice and an attractive minerality. Decant an hour before serving. Drink it with cassoulet, roasted meats and game, hearty stews, barbecue and Mediterranean cuisine. Buy it at: Hopper's Wine and Spirits, Cork & Bottle and Martin Wine Cellar in Metairie. Drink it at: Stella!, Herbsaint and Restaurant August. — Brenda Maitland
