With apologies to Shakespeare: A rose by any other name improves your grilling game? This one definitely does. A big favorite at our last Pennywise Sale, so we bought a little extra to offer to those who missed out.
Corbieres, situated between Narbonne and Carcassone, has been a wine-making center since the Greeks and Romans, and many of the walled vineyards were, in fact, constructed by slave labor during the late Roman empire. The vineyards of L’Enclos des Roses are planted to century-plus old vines of Carignane, plus bush-trained Syrah and Grenache that are nearly as ancient. The wine is bold and rich, with black cherry, dried plum, Asian spices, and what the French call ‘garrigue’: the wild herbs of the south on a hot, windy summer day. Try it with anything off the grill, or some perfectly ripe cheese.
