Domaine Rimbert Cousin Oscar Cinsault 2019
|Region||France, Languedoc-Roussillon, Saint-Chinian|
Pale, transparent purple. Dry red. Juicy, immediate, and irresistable like Jean-Marie's famed cousin, Oscar. Oscar was apparently quite the charmer - everyone wanted a piece of him and could never get enough. Hence the charm and frustration of such a delicious and small production cuvée. Rarely is there enough to go around, especially in recent vintages when yields have been particularly challenging. Grab Oscar when you can and when he's not available, savor the memory and pray to Mother Nature for a re-appearance. Pair with fowl with prunes, lamb with rosemary, canard à l'orange.
