About the producer...
"I first discovered these fabulous wines at the village bistro in Cairanne about 8 years ago – I asked the plump and red faced Chef what he drank himself and we shared a bottle of Les Trois Soeurs. That afternoon he introduced me to Mireille and Marc Besnardeau at Domaine Les Grand Bois, and we have been buying their wines ever since.
Domaine Les Grand Bois are what the Southern Rhône is all about – wines from a small artisan family business of the highest quality and at more than reasonable prices, Bordeaux and Burgundy can't match them in terms of quality and value. Les Trois Sours is as good a Côtes Du Rhône as you will find anywhere. Their Cairanne is the best from that appellation I have ever tasted – and their Viognier could come from Condrieu!"
