Mas de Bouvau

Just around the corner from Vacqueyras and Gigondas, this is a wonderful bistro run by Madame Hertzog. There are also a few (6) rooms available. Although I have never stayed here, it appears to be a very comfortable and quiet venue. I tend to stop here between big tastings in both Gigondas and Vacqueyras, and I am never disappointed. I had delicious brandade de morue, and their perfumed Provençal leg of lamb. Since I was tasting, I only had a couple glasses of the 2000 Cairanne from Rabasse Charavin, one of my favorite producers in this appellation.
