Mourat Vin de France Rouge "Rouquin du Jardin" 2019
Rouquin de Jardin, where our redheaded gnome (Rouquin means red-head in French) is standing in a moonlit garden, without his pointed gnome hat but still sporting his shades, this time with a glass of red wine.
The 2018 Rouquin de Jardin is also one of the sleeper surprise hits of our bottle program at Revel. 100% Pinot Noir, unoaked and high-toned with bright cherries and a mix of lovely fresh herbs—it’s so approachable and delicious, we often find ourselves selling a second bottle of this little, redheaded gnome wine to our guests. I love this wine with roast chicken, pork or an easy meal of pâté, cheese, and crunchy French bread.
