The story! We tasted this with one of our favorite boutique importers not long ago, who said, "You have to try the wines of Fabienne Barnaud." Fabienne and her husband only make a few cuvées in limited quantities. Upon sampling Latitude 44, we struggled to contain our excitement. A southern Rhône red blend, suitable for any occasion, that's full of character? Yes, please.

In your mouth: I am a proud, unapologetic Côtes-du-Rhône. I'm not one of those "designer" wines made to specification. I am what the terroir of my vineyard made me. Ample juicy red fruits, with savory hints of wild herbs. Incredibly easy to like without much fuss, I always invite you to enjoy a second glass.
