2001 Jerome Quiot Gigondas ($16) -- Red Rhone. I guess February is turning into French Wine Month here at the shop. Here is a candidate for one of the better poor man's Chateauneuf-du-Pape.

The vineyards are made up of 75% Grenache, 10% Syrah, 10% Mourvedre, 5% Clairette and Cinsault. On first opening not much nose, but has very pleasant soft fruit flavors that went well with my lunch of Chicken Parmesan and Garlic Bread. The finish was medium to long.
