Mounir Saouma is one of the more interesting and perhaps controversial characters in modern French wine. He is the owner of two domaines, cult negociant label Lucien Le Moine in Beaune, where he produces highly-sought-after Premier and Grand Cru Burgundies, and Clos Saouma where pursues his love for Chateauneuf-du-Pape with his own vineyards on some of the most prized terroir in the region. This is a gorgeous Grenache-based blend that shows both the red fruit and density of the region with the silkiness and fragrance one might expect from a producer who has Burgundy in his bones. It's an elite example of Cote de Rhone from a top-tier modern producer.
