Dom De La Bastide Cotes Du Rhone Rouge 2015 Product #30665 (In Stock)
Dom De La Bastide Cotes Du Rhone Rouge 2015 Dom De La Bastide Cotes Du Rhone Rouge 2015

The 2015 growing season and harvest was monumental across most of Europe - and if you have doubts, just one big sniff and deep sip of this 50% Grenache, 30% Syrah, and 20% Carignan blend from the heart of the Southern Rhone will convince you.

Super deep aromas of roasted raspberries and cherries with earthy, chocolaty, undertones really burst from the glass. The palate is more like an old-school Chateuaneuf du Pape than Cotes du Rhone, with layers of rich raspberry, black plum and blackberry fruit accented by sweet and savory spice and a deep, rich, earthy/meaty depth. The tannins are fine-grained and sweet and the acidity shockingly fresh for such a ripe, rich, flavorful Rhone. It's a ton of wine for the money right now, but as it gains fleshy richness over the next few years, it will become about a fine a Rhone buy as we've ever seen. Do not miss.

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

Guigal Cotes-du-Rhone 2011 375ml Product #29192 (In Stock)
Guigal Cotes-du-Rhone 2011 375ml Guigal Cotes-du-Rhone 2011 375ml

Another fine vintage from the Rhone masters at Guigal.

"Smoky cherry and blueberry aromas display very good clarity and a touch of cracked pepper. Showing its Syrah component, with sappy black and blue fruit flavors sharpened by a spicy nuance. A sexy floral note comes up on a gently tannic finish that lingers with very good persistence. As usual, this wine punches well above its category and should reward at least another four or five years of patience."  Vinous 90 points

"The value-priced 2011 Cotes du Rhone (49% Syrah, 46% Grenache and 5% Mourvedre aged 24 months in foudre) over-delivers and exhibits textbook black cherry, smoked earth, olive, underbrush and licorice, as well as a clean, balanced, medium to full-bodied profile on the palate. Rock solid in the vintage and surpassing any number of more expensive releases, it should be consumed over the coming 4-5 years."Wine Advocate 88 points

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!

Ch De Segries Cotes Du Rhone Rouge 2014 Product #30213 (In Stock)
Ch De Segries Cotes Du Rhone Rouge 2014 Ch De Segries Cotes Du Rhone Rouge 2014

One of the Rhone's most consistent values, Segries Cotes du Rhone is a shining success in 2014.  Made from declassified Lirac grapes, it's a blend of 50% Grenache, 30% Syrah, and 10% each Cinsault and Carignan done almost entirely in tank.  Aromas and flavors of black berries, chocolate covered cherry, and meaty notes of "garrigue" - the blend of scrub pine, thyme, lavender, juniper and rosemary that provide the unique scent of Provnencal hills and vineyards. The ripe fruit cloaks the ripe, velvety, tannins, making this as much fun to drink on its own as it is to put out on the dinner table.

Dom Rose Dieu Cotes Du Rhone Villages Plan de Dieu 2012 Product #30369 (In Stock)
Dom Rose Dieu Cotes Du Rhone Villages Plan de Dieu 2012 Dom Rose Dieu Cotes Du Rhone Villages Plan de Dieu 2012

Damien Rozier crafts this robust, gutsy, red from about 80% Grenache and dollops of Syrah and Mourvedre grown on the hot, Mistral-swept, stretch of old Rhone riverbed called Plan de Dieu.  To the east, Gigondas and Vacqueyras perch along the hills of the Dentelles de Montmirail; to the south, the small hill holding “the Pope’s New Castle” rises and looks down on the sandier soils of Chateauneuf du Pape.  Here, though, the ancient Rhone River’s smoothed pebbles are salted through a hard, dense, clay that runs down 10 meters to rock (and water) below.

The 20-40 year-old vines have to work hard here, and so does Damien, farming without use of chemical herbicides or pesticides, working his vines by hand, and sorting out all but the most perfect fruit and aging his wine in French oak for a year.  It sure tastes like all that hard work was worth it!  The wine serves up big, boisterous, aromas of crushed blackberries, black cherry conserves, and super-ripe raspberry with earthy accents of black licorice, hot stone, spice and garrigue.  On the palate, the flavors stay dark, rich, and ripe but a big dose of fresh blackberry juice provides lift and a welcome jolt of tanginess.  The fine-grained tannins give this a just right amount of structure, enough to make this a fantastic match for burgers, pizza, or gilled lamb but not too much to interfere with happy solo sipping.  A straight-ahead, juicy, fun to drink, food-friendly, Cotes du Rhone at a fine, imported just for us, price.

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

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.

Guigal Cotes-du-rhone 2012 Product #30745 (In Stock)
Guigal Cotes-du-rhone 2012 Guigal Cotes-du-rhone 2012

As always, a tremendous Rhone value.

"Spice- and smoke-accented cherry and dark berry aromas are complemented by suggestions of candied violet and cracked pepper. Spicy, energetic and sharply focused on the palate, offering concentrated bitter cherry and floral pastille flavors that open up slowly with air. Distinctly northern Rhône in personality and texture, featuring a peppery, floral-dominated finish, smooth tannins and excellent closing thrust and persistence. The quality of this bottling consistently outpaces its price and appellation, and that's especially true in this vintage."  Vinous (Reynolds) 91 points

"A wine that should be on the market by the time you read this, the 2012 Cotes du Rhone from Guigal is a smokin’ value that offers classic southern Rhone notes of peppery herbs, smoked earth and almost chocolatey dark fruits. Medium plus-bodied, concentrated, with both fine tannin and bright acidity, it will deliver the good for at least 5-7 years."Wine Advocate 90 points

Just another example of why 2015 is so exciting in the Southern Rhone.  Here's a Cotes du Rhone that - as Wine Advocate said about the 2013 - drinks "like a mini-Gigondas."  It's big and ripe and full-bodied with generous raspberry, strawberry and blackberry fruit, a touch of dried spice and a hint of graphite. Finishes rich and smooth with fine-grained tannins.  Grenache, Syrah, Carignan and Mourvedre.

Dom d'Eole Cuvee Tradition Blanc 2014 Product #29858 (In Stock)
Dom d'Eole Cuvee Tradition Blanc 2014 Dom d'Eole Cuvee Tradition Blanc 2014

Organic Grapes!  Provence is more famous for it's red and pink wines, but with great care and skill, it's possible to create compelling whites here, too.  This comes from certified organic vines of snappy fresh Rolle (aka Vermentino in Italy) and rich, luxurious, Roussanne grown in a hidden vineyard shaped like the tongue of a dog.  The sandy soils let both varietals retain their freshness while Provencal warmth, sunshine, and the blustery Mistrial wind ensure plenty of ripeness.

Aromas of crushed yellow peach, tangerine, and crushed stone lead to a creamy, but bone dry, mouthful of peach, peach skin, lime, salty stone and tangy citrus flavors.  Provencal herb notes come up on the back and the stone, citrus, and mineral flavors linger on and on through the long, saline, finish.  A lovely wine for salads and seafood or just to sip.

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

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!

A 100% Grenache from this family-owned, organic estate with holdings in an area of unique terroir in the Southern Rhone known as "Le Plan de Dieu," whose soil is full of 'galets,' the smooth, round stones characteristic of the region. While the aromas have that classic herbal garrigue note, on the palate the fruit is bold, satisfying, and ripe flavors of blackberries and lusciously ripe raspberries.

Dom La Bouissiere Les Amis De La Bouissiere 2013 Dom La Bouissiere Les Amis De La Bouissiere 2013

From a top Gigondas estate owned by brothers Gilles and Thierry Faravel. The wine starts with Merlot and Caladoc (a rarely seen crossing) grown below Gigondas, close to the Rhone river.  Instead of just selling off these grapes, the Faravels decided to blend them with extra Gigondas barrels to make an easy drinking red to share with family and friends:  Les Amis.

You’ll love how the tangy black cherry, raspberry, and blackcurrant fruit unfolds across your palate and the way notes of sweet chocolate and savory herb weave in and out.  There’s fine purity here and a wonderful texture, rich and velvety on the midpalate and then silky and fine on the finish where notes of warm earth and fine-grained tannins linger nicely.  We won’t blame you if you find yourself gulping it down without much thought with pizza, burgers, grilled chicken, etc..  But it’s very long and fine and well worth paying attention to – kind of like a good friend.

Ch Les Valentines Rose Cotes De Provence 2015 Product #30664 (In Stock)
Ch Les Valentines Rose Cotes De Provence 2015 Ch Les Valentines Rose Cotes De Provence 2015

Simply the best rosé we’ll offer this year, this is the kind of rosé that will delight fans and convert pink wine skeptics – and, in this year, it will show you just why we’re all so excited about France’s magnificent 2015 vintage.  Valentine is 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. 

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.  Enjoy this all summer, but be sure to get enough to drink with Thanksgiving turkey and enjoy all winter long.

"A blend of Grenache and Cinsault, this wine comes from old vines in an estate revived in 1997 by Gilles Pons and Pascale Massenot. It's all about aromatic fruit, with grapefruit, pineapple and red currants playing in the flavors. A rich element contrasts pleasurably with the tight, crisp acidity. The wine will benefit from a few more months aging, so wait until the end of 2016."Wine Enthusiast 92 points

Dom Du Tix Rose Les Restanques 2015 Product #30799 (In Stock)
Dom Du Tix Rose Les Restanques 2015 Dom Du Tix Rose Les Restanques 2015

The name “les Restanques” honors the old stone walls running up and down Mount Ventoux that create terraces where the Cinsault, Grenache and Syrah that make up this stunning pink wine soak up warm sunshine in the day and then chill down quickly as cold air flows down the mountainside at night. 

Pour it, and you’ll think, “THIS is what Provencal rose is supposed to look like!” – a brilliantly clear and shimmeringly pale rose petal pink.  It’s a bit floral on the generous nose, too - peach blossom and just-opened rose flower with peach skin, strawberry and herb all weave in and out here.  On the palate it's vivid and fresh and bursting with zesty flavors of strawberry, tart cherry, peach and crushed flowers lifted by a seltzery minerality and bright acids.  You'll find a bit of extra breadth and amplitude from the warm 2015 vintage but love the dry, mouthwatering, finish that leaves peach, strawberry and crushed stone minerality – recalling the “Restanques” themselves! – lingering on.
