“Argile” is clay – which with the gravel here, the old vines and the location (right by Beaucastel’s Coudoulet and just outside the Northern Chateauneuf boundary) makes this an unusually rich and even profound Cotes-du-Rhone. Indeed, as so many critics have said, this easily competes – is in fact indistinguishable from – a lot of very good Chateauneufs, especially from this Northern sector of the appellation.

Here’s what Vinography says:

Medium garnet in color, this wine smells of garrigue, wet stones, and brilliant fresh strawberry and cherry fruit. In the mouth, a gorgeous combination of green herbs, strawberry, and cherry fruit mix under a blanket of muscular but powdery tannins. Fabulous acidity. A deeper, earthier minerality lingers through a long finish along with just a hint of meatiness. Quite delicious. A blend of 25% each of Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre, and old Carignan. Score: between 9 and 9.5.

They rate it equal to the $50 Janasse Chateauneuf.

So here’s what you get: real Chateauneuf quality and style (and even packaging) for only $15.
