Dom d'Eole Rose Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence 2014 Product #29761 (In Stock)
Dom d'Eole Rose Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence 2014 Dom d'Eole Rose Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence 2014

Organic Grapes!  An old friend returns in new packaging and with new style!  Utterly classic Provencal rose from a blend of Grenache (60%), Syrah, Cinsault, Grenache Blanc, Rolle, and Mourvedre.  You'll find the essence of ripe summer strawberry, juicy watermelon, and tangy tangerine with subtle accents of crushed rose petal and garrigue.  Bright on entry, silky smooth on the mid-palate, and then bracingly fresh and dry and mineral-laced on the long finish where orange pith, fresh berry, herb, and citrus flavors linger.  This stylish, captivating, pink is wonderfully refreshing on its own but has enough structure to delight with salads, chicken, or grilled seafood. An Olivier Daubresse Selection of very fine distinction.

Ch Les Valentines Rose Cotes De Provence 2014 Product #29545 (In Stock)
Ch Les Valentines Rose Cotes De Provence 2014 Ch Les Valentines Rose Cotes De Provence 2014

Simply the best rosé we’ll offer this year, this is the kind of rosé that will delight fans and convert pink wine skeptics.  It’s a blend of Grenache and Cinsault from 30 year-old vines in certified organic vineyards just a few miles inland from Saint Tropez that offers both classic Provençal freshness and enough heft and body for amazing versatility at table.  Buy a couple of cases – one for summer and the second to enjoy all Fall, Winter, and Spring long!

The color of this wine is a showstopper – such a delicate, shimmering, pale pink that it’s hard to believe there could be any weight or flavor at all.  Give it a sniff, though, and you’ll start to smile as you enjoy the generous aromas of spring strawberries, cherries, tangerine, spice and Provençal herb.  Take a sip, and your eyes will widen as this pale pink beauty fills your mouth with a rich, creamy, textured explosion of ripe currant, cherry, and lemon/lime fruit with savory accents of white pepper and crushed herb.  And, as the dry, mineral-laced, finish makes your mouth water, you’ll do the only reasonable thing – grab the glass for yet another sip!

Dom D'eole Cuvee Tradition 2012 Product #29610 (In Stock)
Dom D'eole Cuvee Tradition 2012 Dom D'eole Cuvee Tradition 2012

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 Cuvee Confidence Blanc 2013 Product #29857 (In Stock)
Dom D'eole Cuvee Confidence Blanc 2013 Dom D'eole Cuvee Confidence Blanc 2013

I don’t know if oenologist Matthias Wimmer and estate owner Christian Raimont were inspired by Ch Beaucastel’s glorious 100% Roussanne Chateuaneuf Blanc VV or came on the idea of Cuvee Confidence on their own.  But it was a really good idea. You need to try this.

It’s 100% organically grown Provençal Roussanne, fermented and aged in barrel.  The aromas and flavors are a bit like a warm vintage Grand Cru white Burgundy – perhaps Batard? Criots?  – with exotic notes of grilled pineapple and tropical fruits alongside spicy apple and pear notes framed by accents of toasted nut and ginger.  As you swirl it around and let it open in the glass, you’ll find more and more going on, including some fascinating stone, salty caramel, and even the barest suggestion of green tea.  The texture is amazing, at once ultra rich/mouthcoating and vibrant, pure, and precise.  The flavors gather momentum and focus and drive through a finish that focuses to a pinpoint…then vanishes with an almost tactile pop.  An extraordinary experience from an extraordinary wine that you can enjoy right now or cellar for a decade plus.

Dom d'Eole Coteaux d'Aix en Provence Cuvee Lea 2009 Product #29856 (In Stock)
Dom d'Eole Coteaux d'Aix en Provence Cuvee Lea 2009 Dom d'Eole Coteaux d'Aix en Provence Cuvee Lea 2009

Winemaker Matthias Wimmer and estate owner Christian Raimont make this stunner from certified organic Grenache (55%) and Syrah (45%) grapes grown at the foot of the Alpilles mountains in central Provence.  The low yield grapes (about 33% of the legal maximum) ferments slowly in cement vat for 18 days before aging 12 months in barrel and 6 more back in concrete before bottling. 

You know the 2009 Lea is powerful from first sight of the intense, glass-staining, purple/black color.  The aromas are massive, too, with scents of dark blueberry, black plum, black currant, and smoky meat jumping from the glass.  With air, notes of licorice, black olive and crushed Provençal herb emerge and carry over to the rich, high-impact, palate to accent flavors of roasted black fruit, toasted spice, and meat juices.  The flavors build on the back-palate before exploding on the long, powerful, finish where firm tannins lie underneath pulsating flavors of dark fruit, roasting meat, licorice, and herb.  Remarkably fresh and even refreshing for all the richness, this is already a fine companion for grilled lamb or herb-rubbed pork and will comfort with cassoulet for years to come.
