We love the rustic country wines of southern France. And this is one of our favorites: Clos Fantine Faugeres ‘Cuvee Tradition’. Dark, herb- and smoke-laced cassis fruit, spicy and grippy tannins, and just enough earth funk to keep things interesting. This is one of the most character-driven wines we’ve had in a while.
$21.95 a bottle at all Elephants Delicatessen locations.
