For Sommelier Lauren Hayes, this wine is all about an easy drinking, approachable style that goes with just about everything. Fresh cherry and strawberry fruit on the nose continue on the palate, with juicy acidity and a slightly spicy edge. In France, this is what’s known as “glou-glou,” or “glug-glug” wine—stuff that should be purely pleasurable. Drink it on its own, or enjoy it alongside Mediterranean-inspired dishes, like spiced lamb or roasted mushrooms.
