American grad Jennifer took a trip to France fifteen years ago, met a boy, and very much stayed. That boy's family tended vines, and after a bit of viticultural globetrotting, Jennifer and Didier settled down in his home town of Douzens, surrounded by the Corbières hills. ​Among the loveliest people on the planet, their nine small plots of organic vineyards include the oldest vineyard in the village, planted in the latter years of the 19th century. 
L'Oiseau is a traditional Corbières (though all their wines are bottled as Vin de France) blend of Grenache, Syrah and some very special 89-year-old Carignan. It's the spicier of their reds, both powerful and sleek with fragrance of dark rich fruit, violets and toasty, warming cinnamon. No oaking, just steel vats, ageing in those for 16 months before 36 months in bottle. Jennifer & Didier refuse to release their wines before they believe they're ready, so all the beneficial ageing has been done for you and it is very much good to go.
