- Dom D'eole Cuvee Tradition 2012 Product #29610 (In Stock)
Dom d'Eole is back! And, these organically farmed vines in the heart of Provence are giving their best wines ever. The delicious 2012 Tradition is equal parts cement fermented and aged Grenache and Syrah with 20% Carignan for a gutsier texture and blue-black fruit. The aromas and flavors really build with air revealing dark black fruit - plum, berries - with hints of black olive and garrigue (lavender, rosemary & thyme). On the palate, there's wonderful purity and freshness to the dark fruit, olive, and garrigue flavors with hints of Earl Gray tea, lavender, and black raspberry pumping on across the long, juicy, finish. Delicious right now with lamb or North African foods, this will develop in cellar for a lot longer than you'll wait to drink it.
- Dom d'Eole Coteaux d'Aix En Provence Cuvee Lea 2003 Product #20380 (In Stock)
This blend of Grenache and Syrah is aged in small barrels and pushes the quality limit of wines from Provence to new heights. It combines the red fruit of Grenache, the Rhone-like spiciness of Syrah and the typical wild herb flavors of Provencal wines. Taste it blind and you’d think the 2003 Cuvee Lea was an excellent 2001 Chateauneuf or very strong 2006 Gigondas. It’s delicious right now – try it with roasted meats, rich cheeses, or stews of olive and lamb – and still has another 7+ years to go. Stunning value while it lasts.
"Richer and deeper than the 2004 version, this shows an abundance of black cherry fruit, but also layers of spicy, savory complexity. Dominated by old-vine Grenache, it could easily be mistaken for a Lirac or Châteauneuf-du-Pape."Wine Enthusiast 91 points
