Les Vigneaux Chardonnay Pays D' Oc 2014 Product #29849 (In Stock)
Les Vigneaux Chardonnay Pays D' Oc 2014 Les Vigneaux Chardonnay Pays D' Oc 2014

This ripe and fresh no-oak Chardonnay comes from stony vineyards deep within the heart of France's Languedoc region, not far from the famed Mas de Daumass Gassac.  The vineyards lie in a valley northwest of Montpellier where warm sunshine promotes ripening and cool nighttime breezes from the Mediterranean help retain freshness and fruit flavors.

Fresh aromas of juicy pear, golden apple and a hints of peach and honeysuckle lead to a nice, generous, mouthful of fresh fruit, toasted nut, and honeysuckle.  The crisp, fruity, acids build from the middle to the back to give this a lip-smacking, mouthwatering, finish as pear, apple and floral notes linger nicely.  A fine all-around Chardonnay for fish, chicken, or simply sipping.

Moulin De Gassac Guilhem Rose 2015 Product #30530 (In Stock)
Moulin De Gassac Guilhem Rose 2015 Moulin De Gassac Guilhem Rose 2015

Our first 2015 rosé is a winner!  It’s equal parts Syrah and Carignan, grown and harvested fresh just for rosé.  After a few hours of fermentation, the juice is pressed off the black grape skins, giving it a just-right amount of color and structure while allowing the juice to retain all of its natural freshness and vibrancy.
 
As soon as you see this in your glass, you know you’re in for a treat.  It’s a beautifully transparent salmon pink that almost sparkles in sunshine.  Aromas of fresh picked strawberries and crushed red fruits – raspberries and cherries – get a lift from floral accents and a hint of citrus rind.  In the mouth, it’s bright and crisp with loads of berry fruit and just a touch of mineral, showcasing 2015’s extra dose of body and richness but still light and fresh.  The acids come up on the finish and make your mouth water, leaving you looking for a little bite to eat or another refreshing sip.  Drink this on its own anytime you like, or pair it with anything from smoked salmon to fruited chicken salad.  “Berry” delicious!

Dom Brunet Pinot Noir Pays d' Oc 2014 Product #30508 (In Stock)

A whole lot of Pinot Noir for the money here, marrying French elegance with New World ripeness.  Sweetly fruited with notes of baked cherry and dark raspberry plus added complexity from doses of earthy mineral and warm spice.  Spiced raspberry and black cherry flavors linger on the soft, supple, finish with just enough bite for shape and structure.  Fun stuff and great value!

Moulin De Gassac Guilhem Blanc 2014 Product #30528 (In Stock)
Moulin De Gassac Guilhem Blanc 2014 Moulin De Gassac Guilhem Blanc 2014

With its hot, sunny, days and near constant wind, France’s deep South Languedoc isn’t the first place you’d expect to find snappy, fresh, white wines.  But, the Guibert family have been at this winegrowing and making thing since the 1970s, and they’ve clearly mastered the trick!  About 40% Grenache Blanc provides the base for Guilhem Blanc.  While it doesn’t have a lot of flavor on its own, white Grenache provides body and richness to the blend and a hint of something nutty or waxy on the nose and palate, too.

Add in 30% Sauvignon Blanc, grown in cooler sites and harvested fairly early to give the wine a dose of fresh citrus fruit, aromas of fresh herb, and – in this warm climate – a touch of ripe peach and apricot.  Then – in part to help save old vines that would otherwise be ripped up – finish with a dose of 30% Terret Blanc.  One of the oldest grape varieties in Languedoc (and, until the 1960s, the most widely planted), Terret has the great virtue of retaining high acidity and lower alcohol even in the hot Sud sun.  Here it gives the wine a lift of freshness and lemony acidity plus a subtle note of fresh flowers.  The final blend is medium-bodied, mouthwatering, and full of peach, apricot, lemon, and floral aromas and flavors.  Delicious stuff and a great match for baked fish or soft cheese.

Moulin De Gassac Guilhem Rouge 2014 Product #30529 (In Stock)
Moulin De Gassac Guilhem Rouge 2014 Moulin De Gassac Guilhem Rouge 2014

While Mas de Daumas Gassac is most famous for its benchmark Languedoc estate-grown Bordeaux blends, we’ve always had a special fondness for their great value Guilhem wines. The family launched the Moulin de Gassac line-up, including Guilhem, to help preserve old-vine vineyards owned by neighbors who increasingly struggled to find buyers for their grapes and wines.  The Rouge is a blend of 40% Syrah, 30% Grenache, and 30% Carignan, all from 25-30 year-old dry-farmed vines the ripen beautifully in Languedoc’s warm, sunny, climate.

The 2014 does a wonderful job of marrying the rich, warm, ripeness and stony minerality you expect from Languedoc with remarkable freshness of fruit and fragrant berry blossom accents.  A mélange of blackberry, raspberry, cherry and strawberry fruit makes up the wine’s core, with surprisingly complex grace notes of fresh flowers, warm stones, and exotic sandalwood adding interest.  A burst of raspberry puree pushes through on the finish with crushed rock minerality, mouthwatering acids, and fine tannins giving support.  You’ll be happy enjoying this on its own at a party or while dinner cooks and love how it pairs with everything from lamb burgers to pizza.

Castelmaure Corbieres Vin Gris (Rose) 2015 Product #30756 (In Stock)
Castelmaure Corbieres Vin Gris (Rose) 2015 Castelmaure Corbieres Vin Gris (Rose) 2015

Don't let Provence get all the pink wine glory - the folks at Castelmaure in Languedoc's Corbieres make a zesty pale salmon wine that will delight any rosé fan - especially at this price!  It's a blend of 80% Grenache, 10% Carignan, 10% Cinsault, crushed and given a light soak before pressing to stainless steel.  Vibrant citrus zest, raspberry, and berry blossom aromas lead to a tangy mouthful of strawberry, cherry, watermelon and orange zest flavors.  Finishes crisp, clean, with a light citrus pith bitterness that pulls you back again for more.  A yummy pink value!

Cadastres Picpoul De Pinet 2014 Product #29734 (In Stock)
Cadastres Picpoul De Pinet 2014 Cadastres Picpoul De Pinet 2014

This 100% estate grown Picpoul de Pinet clearly demonstrates just how under-rated this variety is. You’ll find pretty aromas of white flowers, lemon/lime citrus, and anise/fennel notes to start.  Then a crisp, minerally, texture with tart granny smith apple, green melon, and lemon/lime flavors and a clean, dry, finish.  This is just a great all-around daily white, with enough flavor and body to shine by itself at a party and enough complexity and depth to pair well with freshwater fish and lighter poultry dishes.  Tremendous value!

Castelmaure Corbieres Col Des Vents 2014 Product #29927 (In Stock)
Castelmaure Corbieres Col Des Vents 2014 Castelmaure Corbieres Col Des Vents 2014

There’s nothing not to like and everything to love about this robust blend of 50% Carignan, 35% Grenache, and 15% Syrah from the barren hills of Laguedoc’s Corbieres region.  Generous aromas of crushed blackberry, black plum, cracked pepper, cocoa, warm stones and more jump from the glass.  Take a sip and you’ll love how the briary blackberry, blueberry and raspberry fruit coat your mouth and the accents of chocolate, stone, herb and pepper give extra complexity.  While the flavors are big and the texture rich, there’s a welcome dose of juicy acidity and fine-grained tannins that make this refreshing drunk solo and flexible at table, too.  

Col des Vents Corbieres isn’t just a delicious red for easy drinking and robust winter foods – it’s also a very, very, smart buy.  At just 13.5% alcohol, it’s a gutsy red you can have more than one glass of and still hold up your end of dinner conversation.  And, at these case prices – the lowest we can find in the world and a whopping $5 or 38% less than the big box store down the street charges – you’ll know you’re enjoying world class value too!

Laurent Miquel Syrah Grenache 2014 Product #30520 (In Stock)
Laurent Miquel Syrah Grenache 2014 Laurent Miquel Syrah Grenache 2014

Exactly the kind of fun, friendly, great value wine that France's  Languedoc region should pump out by the boatload - but somehow doesn't.  This is a great drink, blending 75% Syrah for richness with 25% Grenache for red fruit and lift.  Plenty of dark fruit - plum, blackberry, black raspberry - on the nose and palate with accents of creamy chocolate, warm earth, and spice.  Finishes big and rich with just a dusting of tannins for support.  A fine, delicious, value.

Dom Montmarin Viognier 2015 Dom Montmarin Viognier 2015

This Languedoc Viognier screams springtime.  Made without any oak to obscure its varietal character, this Viognier has plenty of fresh peach and tangerine flavors, and those signature floral aromas that make Viognier so enticing.  Despite all the ripe flavors, it has enough acidity to finish clean and make your mouth water.  Perfect for chicken salad or melon and prosciutto.

Dom De Viranel Trilogie Vdp Cessenon Rouge 2014 Product #30755 (In Stock)
Dom De Viranel Trilogie Vdp Cessenon Rouge 2014 Dom De Viranel Trilogie Vdp Cessenon Rouge 2014

The Viranel family has made wine on the stony soils of Saint-Chinian, in the very heart of the Languedoc's sunny, hot, dry vineyard, since 1551.  Today a new generation is making wines with traditional Languedoc warmth and richness and just a touch of modern innovation.  Here, brothers Amaud and Nicolas combine Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and the much maligned Alicante Bouschet to make a fresh, fun, south of France treat!

Cabernet and Syrah are found across Languedoc and rate as "improving" varieties, while Alicante thought of as the grape that needs improving!  It's a red-fleshed berry that gives lots of color and first became popular as a way to darken over-cropped Grenache/Carignan blends.  But from old vines (these were planted in 1939) and at low yields, it adds a burst of tobacco-like complexity to the big, lush, red and black fruit aromas and flavors here.  Juicy and a touch decadent (in a good way!), this no-oak red will shine with anything off the grill (although the winery's suggestion of rabbit with turnip or pigeon with raisins sounds good, too!).

Chapoutier Bila Haut Cotes Du Roussillon-Villages 2013 Chapoutier Bila Haut Cotes Du Roussillon-Villages 2013

"These latest releases from Michel Chapoutier are all superb. A blend of 40% Syrah, 40% Grenache and 20% Carignan, from a combination of schist and limestone soils, that spent 12 months in a combination of concrete and stainless-steel tanks. It has great aromatics of dark berry fruits, bouquet garni, pepper and lots of minerality, medium+-bodied richness and depth, and a soft, seamless and even elegant fell on the palate. It’s ready to go now, and will drink nicely for 4-5 years."Wine Advocate 91 points

Mas De Daumas Pont De Gassac Blanc 2014 Mas De Daumas Pont De Gassac Blanc 2014

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 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!
