Buy Mas de Guiot Grenache - Syrah
Wine Advocate 90 points - An inexpensive, seductive, sleeper of the vintage is the 2009 Mas de Guiot Vin de Pays Grenache/Syrah (40% of the former and 60% of the latter all aged in tank). This endearing red boasts a dense ruby/purple color in addition to loads of creme de cassis and blackberry fruit intermixed with hints of kirsch, lavender and spice. It is a fleshy, medium-bodied, silky smooth 2009 to enjoy over the next 2-3 years. (Oct 2010)

Wine maker notes
Francois is meticulous in his viticultural practices and a true believer in sustainable agriculture, using no synthetic herbicides, pesticides or fertilizers on any of his vineyards or crops. The rocky soil here is reminiscent of Chateauneuf-du-Pape, and the fruit is always picked late, ensuring very deep, profound wines, with amazingly soft tannins. Sylvia and the boys take over in the winery (the boys work a lot) where she ferments all fruit separately in stainless steel tanks - by varietal and vineyard site! The blend for this bottling is 40% Grenache and 60% Syrah, both grown at very low yields and hand-harvested. This is a very sexy wine with strong concentration. Bottled unfiltered. A great value!
