There are several important vineyard sites that form the base of the Gigondas that comes to the USA, including Gour de Chaulé, Les Blaches, and Les Bousquets. The average age of the Read More...
Grenache vines planted within these plots is 55 years (as of 2011). Production levels generally average 30 to 32 hectoliters per hectare. The grapes are harvested manually and are never destemmed. There is a three week cuvaison. A small amount of press juice is added back to the cuvee. Malolactic fermentation takes place in cuve and, after the malolactic fermentation is complete, the wine is racked into large oak "foudres" where it stays for approximately 18 months. The wine is racked no more than three times before it is bottled - unfined and unfiltered - 30 to 36 months after harvest. New oak is not used at this domaine. The resulting wine is sturdy, braced with sweet, dusty tannins, and is intensely aromatic with notes of crushed white pepper, oriental spices and game.

of the Jaboulet family’s ownership (for example, 1993-2005). The 2010 was aged in barrel and represents one-third of the Hermitage crop (another one-third was eliminated and the final one-third went into La Chapelle). Its deep purple color is followed by notes of camphor, tar, pepper, beef blood, black currant jam and hints of new saddle leather as well as earth. This supple, rich, full, authoritative beauty should drink well for 15-20 years."

Hermitage has a knockout texture, masses of fine tannin and a great finish. Enjoy it over the coming 15 years or more.

This was a rock star lineup by owner/winemaker Florent Viale. Covering roughly 13 hectares in Crozes Hermitage (mostly around the villages of Mercurol and Tain) and just under two hectares in Hermitage, the wines from this domaine see a traditional vinification followed by aging mostly in older demi-muids, with new oak kept to around 20% for most of the cuvees. The wines are classic, textbook examples of their appellations and should not be missed. The fact that they can represent good value is just icing on the cake."

easy to read Hermitage that has lots of ripe, sweet fruit in its full-bodied, concentrated, textured profile. It has copious sweet blackberry and cassis fruit, violet and serious granite-like minerality, superb mid-palate depth and a focused, structured finish. It’s a beautiful, classy 2012 that will have 20-25+ years of longevity."

VINOUS MEDIA 95-97 POINTS: "Presented as components from four different barrels: #1, from Beaume: Exotic scents of candied licorice, dark berries and smoky Indian spices. Fleshy and broad on entry, then tighter in the middle, displaying superb depth to its bitter cherry and floral pastille flavors. #2, from Peleat: Explosive red fruit and potpourri aromas, with a bright mineral overtone. Silky and sweet, offering vibrant raspberry and cherry compote flavors and a touch of bitter chocolate. The red fruit note echoes strongly on the back half. #3, from Meal: Fleshier and rounder than the first two components, offering plush dark berry and violet flavors that coat the palate. Chewy tannins build on the finish and fold smoothly into the wine's dense fruit. #4, from Bessards: Emphatic mineral and dark berry aromas pick up a sexy floral note and a hint of cola. Sappy, penetrating and sharply focused, displaying an impressive array of red fruit and floral qualities and strong finishing spiciness. Jean-Louis Chave told me he thinks this wine will be "classic Hermitage with an emphasis on fruit, not structure, but not lacking in structure at all--just compared to, say, 2010 and 2005." -- Josh Raynolds

heavenly stuff! Comprised of 90% Marsanne and 10% Roussanne, this incredible white boasts massive aromatics of white currants, white peach, flowers, licorice, sauteed nuts and brioche, as well as a striking minerality that comes out with additional time in the glass. Coming from the oldest vines in Hermitage, it is a full-bodied, incredibly concentrated effort that builds on the palate and through the finish, yet stays fresh, elegant and lively, without ever being over the top. One of the greatest white wines I was able to taste during my trip through the region, this beauty should either be consumed in the coming 4-6 years, or forgotten for 20."

Hermitage appellation, above the famed lieu-dit for white Hermitage, Les Rocoules. This cuvee is very limited in availability so I’ll keep my notes brief. Aromas of white currants, pepper, quince and apricot marmalade are present in this full-bodied, gorgeously rich, pure, stunning white. Completely locked down at present, it should be forgotten for 8-10 years and drunk over the following two decades. It will unquestionably be a very long-lived white wine."

accented by licorice, black pepper, and piquant fruit pit. Polished and glycerin-rich like its 2009 counterpart, this predictably musters an even more remarkable sense of primary fruit juiciness for an effect at once soothing and invigorating, its bitter and pungent elements lending a medicinal cast to a palate-staining finish. It ought to be worth following for several more years, although there is plenty of incentive to revisit and relish it soon."

50% Syrah, 50% Grenache.
Vin de France (formerly known as Vin de Table) is the most basic quality tier for wines from France. What does that mean? Generally, to us, we've found Read More...
some of the best everyday quaffers-- like those featured in our Wine of the Month and Wine of the Month 2 programs-- that don't cost a fortune. This is one of those wines. Syrah and Grenache are excellent partners in wine, both grapes enjoying warm climates such as those found in the south of France (or Spain or other parts of the 'new world'). This wine also hails from Mas de Boislauzon, a winery with holdings in Châteauneuf-du-Pape and Côtes du Rhône, comprised of brother and sister team (and fifth generation winemakers) Christine and Daniel Chaussy, which is another significant feather in this wine's pedigree cap. But what it really came down to, as it usually does, is the fact that this wine is delicious and reasonably priced. It's a good summer red in that it's not too big in body as one might find in a Cabernet Sauvignon or Cab blend, but big enough to serve with red meat at a late afternoon or early evening barbecue or affair.

The nose is an attractive mélange of mixed red and blue fruits, a touch of hillside bramble, dark spices, sea salt, light florals and a hint of cured meats. In the mouth, the rounded, sexy texture is kept trim with acidic structure in what amounts to a beautiful pas de deux on the palate. Fruit is king as jammy raspberry and strawberry fruit intermingle with violets and other darker florals; again a touch of spice... excellent structure, rounded tannins keep it lean and uplifting as the finish adds a touch of earth to the rich fruits.

environment and tries to let the soil express itself. In this perspective, He is always looking for more vivacious grounds for the vine to grow on (I adopted the principles of biodynamic), and, in the cellar for always purer wines that let as much as possible the various lots express their specificities and unique characteristics.
A team of 7 people all year long plus a seasonal staff of a dozen people who work from the winter solstice (late december) to the summer solstice (late june), 40 hectares and 6 different grape varieties: Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault, Merlot and Cabernet-Sauvignon for red wines and Viognier for white wines, an organic and biodynamic culture with no chemical fertilizer, no weed-killer and no insecticide since 2002 and the obtention of the ECOCERT certification in 2008; a very specific attention given to the balance and the life of soils; a naturally low yield (around 38 hl/hectare); choices that make it possible to extract as much minerality and expression from the soil and give vivacious wines a high delicacy and a subtle complexity.
