Vin de pays du var
The var departement is located inland in the centre of Provence and is surrounded by mountain ranges which give the area a unique climate.
Anna and I sauntered up to a little restaurant in the Parc du mercantour village of saorge after a nice walk along the GR52a.
We ordered a demi pichet of vin du pays du var rouge to go with the menu du jour Saorgien.
Dark deep red in colour with a very aromatic nose and a gamay like bubblegum fruityness.
Full bodied with a high amount of acid on the palate but suprisingly good red to drink in hot weather.
Available in Nicolas
