Domaine Mucyn Vin de Pays

Domaine Mucyn Vin de Pays des Collines Rhodaniennes 2010
Rhone Valley, France

Review: This Vin de Pays (fancy French for Table Wine) is from Collines Rhodaninnes – hills in the Northern Rhone Valley. It’s a nontraditional blend of Syrah and Gamay. The Gamay is noticeable right from the start with tones of bright, tart raspberries, moving into fresh red currants and a touch of spice. Overall, the wine has a nice fruit, a light body, and light tannins. 

Food Pairing: I would pair with lighter fare – possibly grilled chicken or pork with a balsamic glaze.

Bottom Line: If you’re looking for something easy drinking and a little different, this is your wine.
