- Mas D' Alezon Faugeres Montfalette 2011 Product #26416 (In Stock)
Powerful and elegant, this old-vine Mourvedre shows that great wine can indeed come out of France's less-heralded regions. The nose is powerfully fruity, with the scent of something leafy and herbal in the background. The palate explodes with deep, ripe blackberry fruit supported by gravelly minerality. We were shocked that all this could be packed into a wine that clocks in at only 12.5% ABV!
- Tablas Creek Vineyard Mourvedre 2010 Product #27292 (In Stock)
A beautiful wine to pair with olives or fennel.
"A fragrant bouquet evokes dark berry preserves, violet and licorice complemented by smoke and allspice notes. Sappy, smooth and expansive, offering intense blackcurrant and bitter cherry flavors underscored by a zesty mineral nuance. Chewy but fine-grained tannins give shape to the clinging finish, which leaves cherry pit and spice notes behind."International Wine Cellar 91 points
"I find stunning beauty and purity in Tablas Creek’s 2010 Mourvedre. Rich yet weightless, it offers up plum, camphor, tobacco, spices and mint, all to match an impossibly refined, gracious personality. The 2010 is rich yet not at all heavy. It is a wine of incomparable textural finesse. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2022."Wine Advocate 92 points
