What a fine experience it was to have a vertical tasting of Sablet wines all the way back to 1990 here. And great to meet Jean Autran from Domaine de Piaugier. Outstanding wines of Syrah, Grenache, and Mourvedre. Rustic yet elegant, rich, yet sometimes delicate.  Sensuous flavours in the glass.

Sablet is a commune in the Vaucluse department in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region in southeastern France. It is a fortified Provençal village founded in the 800’s and rich in history.

Great little drive back to our Bed and Breakfast in Cairrane through misty blackness punctuated by little galaxies of light, each a village nestled in the Alpine foothills here in the Southern Rhone.
