Calce, a remarkably tiny French village of 190 inhabitants, perches on a promontory in a valley of the Pyrénées Mountains just north of the Spanish border. The terroir: schist hills, covered in green oak, thyme, heather, juniper (and a good deal of other Mediterranean shrubbery, all commonly known as garrigue, believed to impart aromas and flavors to wine). Tiny parcels of vines cascade their way from terrace to narrow slopes, only to rejoin a little lower, planted to Grenache Noir, Carignan and Syrah. The 40/45/15 blend gains body and complexity, developing aromas of leather and cooked fruits finely spiced, with nuances of prunes. Velvet in texture, the subtle spices and hints of licorice evolve, and it finishes agreeably, long and warm. All of which makes it a perfect companion for red meat and cheeses, beefsteaks, BBQ, grilled Margret de Canard, lamb chops or venison, tournedos with mushrooms. This is an incredible price for this wine.
