Penya Cotes Catalanes Rouge 2015 Product #30931 (In Stock)
Penya Cotes Catalanes Rouge 2015 Penya Cotes Catalanes Rouge 2015

As soon as we tasted the 2015 Penya, we knew:  this is going to be a “no-brainer” favorite value red of the year! It’s loaded with generous red and blue fruit – think raspberry, blueberry, blackberry – plus a nice whiff of sweet berry blossom and violet.  There’s enough heft and tannin here to give the wine a satisfying texture and make it a great companion for any summer food. Or give it a light chill and you’ll love it’s thirst-quenching joy as you twist-off the top and pour it on the deck while the grill heats up and the sun goes down.

“The vibrant purple-colored 2015 IGP Cotes Catalanes was bottled in January and raised all in concrete tanks. Made from 52% Grenache, 36% Carignan and 12% Syrah, it offers jammy, forward notes of blackberries, raspberries and flowers in a medium-bodied, nicely balanced, fruity personality. It’s a terrific value and geared for near-term drinking.”Wine Advocate 89 points

Beau Chene Pinot Noir Vdp 2015 Product #31405 (In Stock)
Beau Chene Pinot Noir Vdp 2015 Beau Chene Pinot Noir Vdp 2015

Pinot Noir from the South of France has gotten a bit of a bad name (even when it is, in fact, Pinot Noir!), but when done well it can be delicious and stunning value.  And that's what we have here.  Nice and fleshy with plenty of ripe plum, cherry and red berry fruit aromas and flavors with hints of spice and earth. Finishes with friendly tannins and lingering flavors of spice, red fruit and earth.  A surprising amount of complexity and flesh here for the money in a fine, honest, tasty Pinot you'll enjoy with salmon, poultry, or just hanging out with friends.  Excellent value.

Chapoutier Bila Haut Cotes Du Roussillon Villages 2014 Product #31066 (In Stock)
Chapoutier Bila Haut Cotes Du Roussillon Villages 2014 Chapoutier Bila Haut Cotes Du Roussillon Villages 2014

These guys just never miss! No oak, big flavors, great value.

"A terrific value that’s close to an even split of Grenache and Syrah (there’s 10% Carignan), from a mix of terroirs in the Agly Valley, the 2014 Haut Cotes du Roussillon Villages les Vignes de Bila Haut was completely destemmed and spent eight months in a mix of concrete tanks and stainless steel prior to bottling. A fabulous value that will be hard to beat as a mid-week drinker, it offers lots of juicy berry fruit, violets, peppery herbs and damp earth characteristics in a medium-bodied, bright, fresh and elegant package. It’s ideal for drinking over the coming 2-4 years."Wine Advocate 90 points

Ch de St Louis Corbieres Prestige 2014 Product #30930 (In Stock)
Ch de St Louis Corbieres Prestige 2014 Ch de St Louis Corbieres Prestige 2014

Corbieres, in the heart of the Languedoc, is famous for turning rich, herb-scented, wines with plenty of heft and fruit - if sometimes a bit too much earthiness and chew.  Here, the team from Ch St Martin de la Garrigue crafts a juicy red that offers up all the good parts of Corbieres with none of the flaws.  It's a blend of Grenache (40%), Syrah (35%) and Cargignan (25%) picked nice and ripe - but not overripe! - and made carefully in tank.

You'll find plenty of the scents and flavors that make Corbieres so much fun - dark raspberry, ripe blueberry, and a big handful of fresh pine and herb - along with a satisfying smoky/meaty depth.  Carignan's bright blueberry fruit keeps things fresh and adds a nice touch of minerality to the fruit and herb-laced finish.  Fine, easy-drinking, fun at your next cookout or casual meal.

Mas De Daumas Pont De Gassac Blanc 2015 Product #31129 (In Stock)
Mas De Daumas Pont De Gassac Blanc 2015 Mas De Daumas Pont De Gassac Blanc 2015

From the estate often called the "Lafite of the Languedoc" comes this zesty, rich, blend of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Grenache Blanc made all in tank. There's a strong Earl Grey note to the floral and stone fruit aromas, and the bergamot carries on through the rich and complex flavors of citrus, peach, and tea.  Dry and dusty on the finish, the wine keeps changing and fascinating from first sip to last.

Mas Des Volques Volcae X 2010 Product #30385 (In Stock)
Mas Des Volques Volcae X 2010 Mas Des Volques Volcae X 2010

Young Nicolas Souchon launched this tiny side-project while working as cellar master at Chateauneuf du Pape’s Clos St. Jean.  With advice from super-consultant Philippe Cambie, he crafted 400 cases of this powerful red from his family’s 11 hectares of vineyard in the Languedoc, about 45 miles west of Avignon.  It’s a traditional blend of more-or-less equal parts Syrah, Grenache, and Carignan, with the Syrah and Carignan aged in used barrel and the Grenache in tank.  Full, fleshy, and forward, you'll enjoy this for the rich black raspberry fruit and accents of bitter chocolate, herb, and black olive.  It's 100% ready to drink now - and wants drinking over the next 24 months - with lamb, pork, or earthy bean stews.  A steal, but limited.

“Bright violet. Sexy black and blue fruit aromas are complicated by floral and cola qualities. Supple cassis and blueberry flavors show very good energy, gaining sweetness and depth with air. Finishes with noteworthy power, a suave note of black raspberry and slow-building tannins.” Vinous (Reynolds) 90 points

“Mas des Volques 2010 Vin de Pays Volcae X, a 400-case sleeper of the vintage, is loaded with fruit. It offers sumptuous deep raspberry and black currant aromas and flavors, medium to full body, silky tannins and abundant hedonistic pleasure. Enjoy it over the next 3-4 years.”Wine Advocate 87-90 points

Ch St Martin de la Garrigue Picpoul De Pinet 2015 Product #30926 (In Stock)
Ch St Martin de la Garrigue Picpoul De Pinet 2015 Ch St Martin de la Garrigue Picpoul De Pinet 2015

If you've only ever had mass-produced Picpoul de Pinet from a co-op winery - or if you are just craving something deliciously different in white wine refreshment - you owe it to yourself to try this.  As Andrew Jefford, British author of the landmark The New France has said, “Perhaps the best wine for me is an astonishing Picpoul de Pinet, picked very late from low-yielding vines: those who consider this an inarticulate if refreshing choice, the Muscadet of the Midi, should try this mint-and-verbena-scented, powerfully lemony wine.” 

The aromas feature fresh mint and verbena scents to go with aromas of lemon pulp, green melon, and more.  Flavors of lemon peel, tangy pineapple, green apple and fresh, salty, sea breeze swirl across your tongue in a wine that coats your palate with agreeable richness and finishes salty, lemony, minty, and very fresh.  You've never had Picpoul like this before, and once you try it (especially with shrimp, oysters, or clams), you'll struggle to go back.

Ch Camplazens La Garrigue La Clape 2012 Product #29306 (In Stock)
Ch Camplazens La Garrigue La Clape 2012 Ch Camplazens La Garrigue La Clape 2012

Possibly the sunniest vineyard in France, La Clape sits right on the Mediterranean coast in deepest Languedoc.  You'll smell and taste the region's sun-baked stones and scrubby herb and pine here but also oodles of earthy strawberry and cherry red fruit.  A floral note weaves in and out even as the wine gets meatier and more savory with air. Finishes firm and earthy with plenty of garrigue.  Fun!

Ch Coupe Roses Minervois Blanc Champ Du Roy 2015 Ch Coupe Roses Minervois Blanc Champ Du Roy 2015

You won't find a more enjoyable warm weather refresher than this fruit-filled white from the stony hills of France's Minervois region.  It's a blend of 70% Grenache Blanc and 30% Muscat, fermented cool and aged in tank.  Fun aromas of orange blossom and lime zest-dusted peach lead to a rich mouthful of orange, peach and tangerine fruit.  Dashes of citrus zest and stony mineral add freshness and help this fruit filled beauty finish clean and dry.

This sweet wine from Southwestern France is made with hand-picked Tannat grapes allowed to semi-dry on the vine.

Dom Cros Cuvee Tradition Minervois 1998 Product #8127 (In Stock)
Dom Cros Cuvee Tradition Minervois 1998 Dom Cros Cuvee Tradition Minervois 1998

Not many "plain" Minervois (or even luxury cuvees!) would still be pumping out the pleasure at 18 years of age, but this blend of old-vine Carignan plus Grenache and Syrah sure does.  Dark berrries, dried plum and raisin aromas and flavors with accents of tar, damp earth, and smoke.  It's mellowed, but still is powerful and structured. For big flavored foods - decant it for air and sediment.
