A few years ago we introduced you to a young female winemaker in the Rhone. Hers was the first wine folks called back on, saying "Give us more!!"

Your wish is our command.

I can't understand why Audrey Latard isn't more well known. She has a 'Cru' level address, is one of the most nice and affable young vigneronnes in the business, and her wines are thoroughly delicious and enjoyable. 

When I first visited I took note of lots of construction materials lining the driveway--shingles, cement blocks, pipes--that sort of stuff. She was building/renovating a house on the property so she could finally live near the winery rather than commute from Vaison every day. I asked if she would install a sign for the winery along the road (I had trouble finding her) and she shrugged indifferently. It's just me, she said. I put up a sign, I only work in the tasting room. What happens to the vineyard?

But guess what she went and did? Installed a tasting room underneath the newly renovated house!

I love this sort of matter-of-fact-ness. The gleam in her eye as I asked this question seemed to say, hey dummy, YOU found me--so can others (with an appointment)!

This was about as easy an afternoon of wine tasting as I've ever had. Audrey's wines are delicious, if not judiciously made. With only 4 hectares of vines and about 2000 cases to go around, we have here a true small-farm economic model folks. 

Audrey's "Creation", as she playfully calls it, is rich, full-throated Rhone red of mostly Grenache. I would call it a wonderful summer barbecue but that might short sell it. You can decide for yourself.
