Castelmaure Corbieres Col Des Vents 2015 Product #31694 (In Stock)
Castelmaure Corbieres Col Des Vents 2015 Castelmaure Corbieres Col Des Vents 2015

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.

"What could be a hidden gem in the vintage, the 2015 Corbières Col des Vents is 50% Carignan, 30% Grenache and 20% Syrah that’s aging all in tank. A big, sexy, fruit-loaded effort, it offers a liquid blackberry like style of fruit as well as crushed herbs, pepper and a hint of earth. It should drink nicely right out of the gate."Wine Advocate 87-89 points

Clairon Des Anges Costieres De Nimes Rouge 2015 Product #32704 (In Stock)
Clairon Des Anges Costieres De Nimes Rouge 2015 Clairon Des Anges Costieres De Nimes Rouge 2015

The kind of wine Languedoc does best - a great all-purpose, no oak, quaffer made from 60% Grenache (for ripe red fruit) and 40% Syrah (for meaty, smoky, accents). Dark red raspberry fruit holds center stage with hints of blackberry and savory notes of pepper and black olive for interest.  Juicy and easy drinking with a fun, mouthwatering, finish.  Tastes like $15 - and a good $15 red at that!

Moulin De Gassac Guilhem Rose 2017 Product #33021 (In Stock)
Moulin De Gassac Guilhem Rose 2017 Moulin De Gassac Guilhem Rose 2017

2017 brings a nice update to the label for Moulin de Gassac Guilhem Rose and a bit of an upgrade to what is already one of our most popular pinks.  Nothing's changed about the wine growing or making. 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.

The wine's a beautifully transparent salmon pink that 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 but also fleshy and rich, with loads of ripe berry fruit and just a touch of mineral. It fills your mouth with flavor and fun before 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. “Berry” delicious!

Ch La Roche St. Jean Blanc 2016 Product #32200 (In Stock)
Ch La Roche St. Jean Blanc 2016 Ch La Roche St. Jean Blanc 2016

A staff and customer favorite! This white Bordeaux starts with aromas of just-squeezed lemon and fresh cut grass. On the palate, there’s a nice, juicy hit of riper Meyer lemon that comes in, and the whole thing finishes mouthwateringly clean. While many white Bordeaux are blended with Semillon and Muscadelle to add waxy weight or fruitiness, Ch La Roche St Jean is 100% Sauvignon Blanc. There’s no oak to hide all that tangy fruit, and it’s a very reasonable 13.0% alcohol. If you’ve shied away from New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc because of its over-the-top grapefruitiness or overwhelming, pungent passionfruit flavors, this is the perfect SB for you.

Les Grands Arbres Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 Product #33018 (In Stock)

You don't see much "Cabernet Vin De France" - but one taste of this fruit-filled value will make you thirsty for more.  Especially more made from clearly ripe and organically grown grapes, fermented cool, and aged in tank for maximum fruit flavor and freshness.  You'll find loads of dark cherry and blackcurrant fruit at the core of this juicy, easy-drinking, red with accents of herb, tobacco and cedar that evoke a bit of Bordeaux-like character. So treat it like Bordeaux if you're of a mind to and pare it with lamb or rare roast beef.  Or focus on the fleshy fruit and glug it down with a burger.  At this price, you really can't go wrong.

French Libation Rose Pamplemousse NV French Libation Rose Pamplemousse NV

For years on hot summer days in France's deep south, locals built a refreshing pre-dinner drink from local rosé wine lightened up with a big squeeze of grapefruit juice.  Served on ice with or without a spash of soda, Rosé Pamplemousse (French for grapefruit) was a local favorite to enjoy with family and friends.

Over the past few years, pre-prepared Pamplemousse rosé has swept France as a delicious, fun, low-alcohol, treat to be enjoyed anywhere, anytime.  Now you can get in on the fun, too!  Our Rose Pamplemousse starts with cheerful dry pink wine from southern France, leavened with a touch of spritz and all natural grapefruit and peach flavors.  Unlike most examples, there's no added sugar or syrup here, so the big, ripe, rosé and grapefruit flavors finish dry, crisp, and clean.  Drink cold from the refrigerator, on ice, and with or without a pour of sparkling water or Prosecco for a fun and delicious warm weather pick-me-up.

Cadastres Picpoul De Pinet 2016 Product #32101 (In Stock)
Cadastres Picpoul De Pinet 2016 Cadastres Picpoul De Pinet 2016

If you thought this was good in the past - WOW!  2016 is truly a great vintage across France, including for the 100% estate grown Picpoul de Pinet. 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, delicious, 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!

Les Vigneaux Chardonnay Pays d' Oc 2015 Product #32266 (In Stock)
Les Vigneaux Chardonnay Pays d' Oc 2015 Les Vigneaux Chardonnay Pays d' Oc 2015

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.

Charles Thomas Cotes Du Rhone Blanc 2016 Product #32951 (In Stock)
Charles Thomas Cotes Du Rhone Blanc 2016 Charles Thomas Cotes Du Rhone Blanc 2016

What a great value in refreshing, aromatic, and fun-to-drink white wine!  While Charles Thomas wines are always great values, it's not because they don't work hard in their vineyards.  This is a ripe, rich, blend of organically farmed Grenache Blanc (70%), Rousanne (15%), Marsanne (10%), and Viognier (5%), all made fresh and clean in stainless steel.  Lovely aromas of fresh white peach, tangy apricot, lime zest and white flowers open the show.  In the mouth, there's good weight here - due to the high quality Roussanne grape - but also a crisp, clean, feel, to the juicy peach, apricot, lemon and honeysuckle flavors.  Finishes dry and dusty and very inviting.  A fine sipper and match for all kinds of lighter foods.

Le Paradou Viognier 2016 Product #32662 (In Stock)
Le Paradou Viognier 2016 Le Paradou Viognier 2016

Too often inexpensive Viognier veers toward the cloying and blowsy, but not this fresh little beauty from the south of France.  Le Paradou opens with lovely aromas of honeysuckle and tropical fruits, but on the palate those tropical fruit aromas become crisp, but still-ripe flavors of pineapple and juicy orange.  This strikes just the balance that an inexpensive, aromatic white should: it's assertive enough to be interesting, but won't overpower everyday food. At a reasonable 13% alcohol, it's balanced enough to pair beautifully with Asian takeout or an entree salad.

Dom Jouclary Chardonnay 2016 Dom Jouclary Chardonnay 2016

Here's another great value find from our friend Ed Addiss of Falls Church-based Wine Traditions and the stony vineyards just outside Languedoc's walled city of Carcassonne.  The poor soils and warm, sunny, days give utterly delicious Chardonnay flavors here - spicy pear, ripe stone fruit, and a captivating hint of hazelnut on the finish.  Full and fleshy in texture, but not heavy or marked by oak, the bold ripe apple and stone fruit flavors fan out on a finish just kissed with a touch of lime zest for freshness.  Grilled vegetables, salads and fresh fish are all great matches for this tasty Chardonnay you'll love sipping all year long.

Henri Bourgeois Sauvignon Petit Bourgeois 2016 Product #32523 (In Stock)
Henri Bourgeois Sauvignon Petit Bourgeois 2016 Henri Bourgeois Sauvignon Petit Bourgeois 2016

Basically a “baby Sancerre”, this exciting young Sauvignon Blanc is grown on the same chalky slate soils you’ll find across Sancerre from 10-40 year-old vines, fermented in stainless steel and allowed to rest 3 months on the fine lees.  The vineyard is located just outside the legal boundary of Sancerre, but the flavors make you feel right in the middle!

Generous, fresh, aromas of fresh flowers, just cut grass, white grapefruit, and a hint of wet stones burst from the glass.  Then you’ll find a tad more richness and zest to the crisp citrus and green apple fruit, tangy gooseberry, and fresh grass.  As the refreshing acidity wells up to make your mouth water, a bit of Sancerre’s trademark “gun flint” character shows underneath the juicy bright fruit.  There’s a wonderful rich/brisk, sweet/sour contrast in this wine that will delight and fascinate with every sip.  Served cold, it’s thirst quenching and refreshing.  Let it warm up a touch and it’s layered, complex, and a fantastic match for seafood, fresh vegetables, and – of course – goat cheese.

Dom Foretal Beaujolais Villages 2015 Product #32964 (In Stock)
Dom Foretal Beaujolais Villages 2015 Dom Foretal Beaujolais Villages 2015

Jean-Yves Perraud farms just 20 acres of Gamay in Moulin-a-Vent and Villages-level vineyards between Fleurie and Chenas. In 2015, he turned out a winning, ripe, gulpable Beaujolais Villages that you'll love drinking for refreshment and pairing with roast chicken or any simple meal.  There's the concentration and ripeness you'd expect from 40 year-old vines and the generous 2015 harvest, with loads of dark red cherry and ripe strawberry fruit.  A blast of floral perfume and stony minerality adds interest and a just right pop of cherry acids keeps things fresh and fun.

Wine Advocate's score (87 points) misses the mark a bit, but the words are spot on: "The 2015 Beaujolais Villages needs a leash on the nose to hold back all those exuberant kirsch and dark cherry fruit bursting from the glass. But that is what you want from this vintage. The palate is succulent and ripe with dark cherries and strawberry, sweet to the core and though missing a little definition on the finish, you'd have consumed the entire bottle before you start vexing about that. Glug 'n enjoy."  Exactly!

La Combe Perdue Grenache Mediterranee 2015 La Combe Perdue Grenache Mediterranee 2015

Like your reds really rich, really mouth-filling, and really loaded with ripe raspberry and roasted strawberry Grenache fruit plus a big dose of Rhonish garrigue and spice?  If so, this simply staggering value is for you.  From vineyards all across the Rhone, it's 100% tank-raised Grenache that explodes with super dark, ripe, almost jammy red fruit ("confit of raspberry" sounds so much better than "jammy")  plus bold notes of thyme, rosemary and pepper before finishing with a big gush of fruit.  Nothing subtle here, but loads of fun.

Here's a delicious white Rhone from a biodynamic working in a great, great, vintage. A blend of Grenach Blanc and Clairette, made all in stainless steel tank.  Big aromas and flavors of peach, white flowers, and lime with a dusting of white pepper and crushed bitter mineral providing support on the mouthwatering finish. Concentrated, but not heavy, it's lovely to sip and will sing with fish or salads.

Dom Pontbriand Vaucluse 2016 Dom Pontbriand Vaucluse 2016

Kind of an old-school South-of-France red here with a bit of modern polish.  The blend is old-timey with 40% Grenache, 40% Caladoc, 10% Syrah and 10% Marselan all done in tank.  You'll certainly taste the warm, sunshiny, climate here in ripe plum and black raspberry fruit and there's a nice dose of black olive, thyme and lavender, too.  But the flavors stay as fresh as a daisy right on through the dusty, lightly chewy, finish.  Great all-purpose bistro red at a fine, weeknight, price.

Dom de Martinolles Pinot Noir Pays d'Oc 2016 Product #32975 (In Stock)
Dom de Martinolles Pinot Noir Pays d'Oc 2016 Dom de Martinolles Pinot Noir Pays d'Oc 2016

You don't think of "Pinot Noir" and "Languedoc" as going together, but this delicious value suggests you should!  Actually, Pinot Noir was one of the most important red grapes of the vineyards around Carcassonne in the 15th Century before more productive Grenache, Carignan, etc. arrived.  Grown on limestone, Martinolles's vines are giving exciting wine at age 10, starting with deep, ripe, almost tactile blackberry and red raspberry fruit.  The texture is a bit velvety and weight nicely mouthfilling, while the accents of cocoa powder add complexity to the lingering crushed berry fruit.  A fine value Pinot, for sure, but one with enough heft to work like a lighter Cotes du Rhone as well.  Stupendous value.

Made from the rare Loin de l’oeil grape and Mauzac grapes, this crisp and juicy white marries the structure of a top white Bordeaux with the richness and layered texture of Southern France whites.  A touch of Sauvignon Blanc brings out some grapefruit and grassy notes, and a note of Kaffir lime leaves weaves in and out of the crisp, juicy, palate.  A bright, refreshing, wine that stays balanced and interesting through the long, clean, finish.

Mission La Caminade Cahors 2016 Product #32978 (In Stock)
Mission La Caminade Cahors 2016 Mission La Caminade Cahors 2016

After Bordeaux largely dropped the grape in the late 1800s and before Argentinan wines exploded on the scene, if you wanted to drink Malbec, you found your way to Cahors.  South of Bordeaux, the "black wine of Cahors" gained fame for it's inky color, firm structure, and captivating blend of dark fruit, warm spice and loads of gravely minerality.  This is a great introduction to contemporary Cahors, with a dash of Merlot softening Malbec's firm, stony, edges.  Plenty of tangy fruit, layers of sweet and savory spice, and a darkly earthy finish make this a great match for stews, roasts and burgers.

Les Vignerons De Tavel Lirac Les Hauts d'Acantalys 2015 Les Vignerons De Tavel Lirac Les Hauts d'Acantalys 2015

SUPER VALUE ALERT!  Lirac is a lot like Chateauneuf but softer and more sweetly fruited.  And this is a top, prime, delicious example at a great price. Smells like Lirac with baked strawberry and red cherry on the nose with hints of flowers and warm tone.  Then it's more fresh then you'd expect on the palate with ripe strawberry and black cherry fruit and an exotic lilac note for complexity.  Nice and dusty on the finish where stone, fruit, and floral flavors linger.

"Youthful violet. Smoke-tinged black and blue fruit and licorice scents show good focus and a subtle hint of cracked pepper. Juicy and smooth in the mouth, offering fresh cherry and blueberry flavors and a touch of bitter chocolate. Shows good breadth and cling on the spicy finish, which is shaped by dusty tannins."  Vinous (Raynolds) 89 points
