If you enjoy rich, full-bodied reds loaded with perfectly ripened fruit, we have a delicious wine and incredible value for you. Saint Roch's Kerbuccio is a full-throttled, mouth filling blend of Grenache and Carignan with a touch of Mourvedre. This wine wowed us and the critics with Decanter Magazine dropping a huge 96 Point score while noting it is "beautifully balanced" and "very polished." Rhone wine loving critic, Jeb Dunnuck called Kerbuccio, "Charming, medium to full-bodied, beautifully pure, and seamless on the palate, you can't go wrong with this wine."

By now you know the wines of Jean-Marc Lafage who brings us such popular hits as Bastide Miraflors, Narassa, Novellum and the recently featured the Lafage Nicolas Wine of the Month 2. This wine is from the Maury Sec appellation In the Languedoc-Roussillon, where many have flocked in recent years as they are able to consistently ripen grapes and find land which is not yet prohibitively expensive. David Phinney who gained fame creating The Prisoner and Orin Swift wines is a prime example of a winemaker who has bet big on this area of abundant sunshine and dark schist soils.

One would expect to pay 2-3 times the price for this wine if produced elsewhere. The delicious flavor, style and freshness of this wine will keep you coming back for more.

DECANTER 96 POINTS -"Lovely kirsch nose with bags of ripe and authentic Maury fruit. The palate is round, fleshy and warm with a delicious richness of oak, vanilla flavour and intense and complex finish. Lovely wine that's beautifully balanced with great typicity. Full-bodied and very polished."

JEB DUNNUCK 93 POINTS -"Another great vintage for the cuvée, the 2016 Maury Sec Kerbuccio (75% Grenache, 20% Carignan, and 5% Mourvèdre) is loaded with character and reveals a deep purple color as well as notes of black and blue fruits, new saddle leather, exotic herbs, and tobacco. Charming, medium to full-bodied, beautifully pure, and seamless on the palate, you can’t go wrong with this wine."
