Tasting Notes Grown in the gravel and limestone soil surrounding Sainte-Victoire, this Quiot family wine has a tight, mineral character along with red-cherry and raspberry fruits. It is full and rich, and you can sense the alcohol in the peppery edge. However, the balance is maintained, with acidity and crisper red-currant flavors arriving at the end. - RV
