2011 Domaine du Deffends Champ du Sesterce Blanc, Vin de Pays de la Sainte Baume $29.99
Domaine du Deffends is situated in the foothills of Monts Auréliens running along the ancient Roman road of the same name. Dry –farmed vineyards from chalky, clay soil with southeast exposures in Saint-Maximin la Saint Baume. A blend of 80% Vermentino and 20% Viognier. Old vines, handpicked and Ecocert Certified Organic. This white is crisp with a lush mid-palate filled with pears, apricots, and a minerally, clean finish.
2012 Chateau La Galiniere Cotes de Provence Rose “Cuvee le Cengle” Vielles Vignes $12.99
One of our first Rose wines to arrive. This is a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault. It has a classic delicate, pale salmon color. It exudes the warmth and aromas of the Provence region with spontaneous, crisp, fresh, balanced citrus flavors with a hint of berries and brioche. The syrah and grenache grapes endow the wine with an elegant, aromatic balance.
2011 Equis (by Maime Graillot) Equinoxe Crozes-Hermitage $17.99
“Dark as a moonless night, with saturated purple and garnet reflections on the rim. The violet flower notes lead to blueberry and black cherry with hints of cigar box. On the palate, black plum skin and boysenberry notes are tied in with tobacco, caramel and coconut framed by a broad consistency with good acidity and plump, well-rounded tannins.”- Importers Notes
2011 Domaine du Coulet Petite Ours Brun Cotes Du Rhone $18.99
Domaine du Coulet was founded by Matthieu’s grandfather after WWII, and over the years has supplied grapes to some of the best known producers in the Northern Rhône, including Chapoutier and Delas. While his father eschewed the agrarian lifestyle, opting instead for a career in international business, Matthieu knew early on that he wanted to be a vigneron. In 1998 at the age of only 23, he took over the family’s 25 acres of well-situated vines on the terraced hillsides of Cornas. And now he makes this delicious Cotes du Rhone that is 100% syrah. A “baby” Cornas at a great price!
2007 Redortier Côtes-du-Rhône Beaumes-de-Venise $21.99
The twin sisters Sabine and Isabelle de Menthon beam when they talk about their 50+ acres of vines in the appellation of Beaumes-de-Venise. They are a great source of pride to the sisters who hold them quite dear. Fifty-year old plantings of Grenache, Syrah and Counoise from 1574 foot elevations. A must try Rhone red wine gem that drinks like a Chateauneuf du Pape, some may argue it is even better at half the price. A perfect BBQ wine. Also try their 2009 Gigondas at $33.99, which is truly delicious as well.
2010 Domaine du Deffends Champs de la Truffière Côteaux-Varois-en Provence $24.99
Equal parts Syrah and Cabernet Sauvingnon planted in 1978. Ecocert Certified Organic as well. These guys were the first to recognize the significance of Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon in Provence. Champs de la Truffière is considered “one of the best reds in Provence” and Champs de la Truffière literally means “field of truffles” which is actually the case; truffles can be found right next to where the vines grow. This wine has lush black currant and black cherry fruit with hints of leather and violets. A must try.
2010 Jean-Louis Tribouley Les Bacs Vieilles Vignes, Languedoc Roussillon $25.99
“Slightly richer and fuller, the 2010 Les Bacs comes from 70-to-80-year-old Grenache vines (65%) with the balance old vine Carignan and other red field blends. Also bottled unfined and unfiltered, it offers an elegant bouquet of sweet cherries, dusty, loamy soil undertones, forest floor, pepper and Christmas fruitcake. This medium-bodied, complex red is drinking exceptionally well at the moment, and should continue to age nicely for several more years.” Robert Parker
2010 Jean Louis Tribouley Orchis, Languedoc Roussillon $28.99
“The 2010 Orchis comes from 100+-year-old vines, mostly Grenache and the rest unidentified co-mingled field blend. Yields were an absurdly low 8 hectoliters per hectare, and the wine was aged in old 500-liter demi-muids before being bottled unfiltered. This whopper of a wine boasts intense notes of kirsch liqueur, lavender, licorice, raspberries and earth. Full-bodied, dense, opulent and rich, this stunning Cotes Catalanes can be drunk over the next 5-7 years.” Robert Parker 91 Points
2011 Domaine Auguste Cotes du Rhone $34.99
“Two other offerings consumers should keep an eye out for include the 2011 Cotes du Rhone. Made from 100% Syrah grown on the other side of R.N. 7 on flat land, facing the appellation of Cornas, it exhibits an inky/purple color. Not totally dissimilar from their magnificent wines of Cornas, it reveals plenty of cassis, blackberry, camphor, pepper and beefy characteristics, medium to full body and a delicious personality. It is meant to be consumed in its first 5-6 years of life.” Robert Parker 90 Points
Also try Clape’s 2011 Le Vin des Amis Vin de Table de France at $26.99 (100% syrah as well).
