L’imprevu translates to “the unexpected,” reflecting the untraditional origins of this wine. After winemaker Laurent suffered a tough vintage in 2016, he was left with a batch, made from a blend of Syrah, Grenache, and Mourvèdre, that had failed to finish fermenting. Rather than trying to restart the fermentation with chemicals, Laurent decided to wait and see what would happen if he left the cuvee alone. After four years, the fermentation finished, resulting in a balanced, medium-bodied wine rich with ripe dark fruit, baking spice, and subtle tannins. Drink with smokey, Texas-style brisket or a hearty mushroom and coconut milk stew.
