Coteaux des Travers Zou Zou

50% Grenache, 40% Syrah and 10% Mourvedre.

From the importer Charles Neal:

It was borne of the idea to create a new range to truly differentiate the family's Côtes du Rhônes from the Coteaux des Travers range of wines. The label drawing is an original and ZouZou (literally, "a jovial, dynamic person who is always fun to be around") is the nickname of Paul's best friend. In homage to him, they decided to craft a lighter and fruitier wine using carbonic maceration, and
fermented and aged in concrete vats. Minimal-to-no sulfur is added, and then it is bottled early in order to preserve its naturally fresh fruit. It is full of velvety blueberry fruit with spice and low tannin, an eminently drinkable red wine.
