  3. DOMAINE CABIRAU 2015 FIRST THINGS FIRST MAURY SEC

    Item #: i_350940
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Wine Advocate: 93-96
    WINE ADVOCATE 93-96 POINTS - "A new cuvee from Dan Kravitz, the 2015 Maury Sec First Things First is a blend of 60% Grenache, 22% Carignan and 18% Syrah that had 75% of the crop brought in at the “correct” time, and 25% brought in over a week later due to broken equipment in the cellar. Scheduled to be bottled in August or October, it offers sensational notes of black raspberries, cassis, violets and graphite as well as full-bodied richness, ultra-fine tannin and an undeniable sexiness that makes it already impossible to resist. Count me a fan and I’d suggest breaking more equipment during harvest in the future as well (or just harvest later)"

    "These are terrific wines that show the classic fruit and minerality of the region, yet also possess a beautiful sense of elegance and purity. They should be on any wine lover's short list." - Wine Advocate

    "Full-bodied richness, ultra-fine tannin and an undeniable sexiness that makes it already impossible to resist." - Jeb Dunnuck

    "These blockbuster efforts are made by Dan Kravitz at the co-op in Tautavel. They more than over-deliver and offer classic Roussillon flair and texture, yet back it up with solid mid-palate concentration and sound structure. Don't miss them." - WINE ADVOCATE

    We are excited to offer another fantastic red from Domaine Cabirau. As you may know, we recently featured their entry level wine as our wine of the month and have twice selected the Serge and Nicolas cuvee as one of our top wines of the year. Now, for the first time, Domaine Cabirau has released a prestige bottling which is appropriately named "FIRST THINGS FIRST." This is a full-bodied stunner loaded with rich, dark fruit flavors which seduce the palate and is definitely a crowd pleaser.

    Jeb Dunnuck of Robert Parker's Wine Advocate reviewed this wine and loved it! He gave the wine a 93- 96 point score based on his initial tasting and called the wine "impossible to resist." He also described First Things first as having "sensational notes of black raspberries, cassis, violets."

    Importer Dan Kravitz had been importing wine for nearly three decades and became aware of a vineyard in the Roussillon with excellent potential. He took the plunge and purchased the vineyard in the town of Maury, where one can grow high quality grapes at a reasonable price. The attention to detail and focus on quality show in this wine which showcases perfectly ripened fruit, amazing freshness and a very long finish.

    This wine has tons of flavor and represents an outstanding value which satisfies both the palate and the wallet. Don't miss it!

  4. DOMAINE DE LA BEGUDE 2015 BANDOL ROUGE LA BRULADE

    Item #: i_351386
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Wine Enthusiast: 93 Points
    Jeb Dunnuck: 92 Points
    JEB DUNNUCK 92 POINTS - "The 2015 Begude Bandol is a step up and is comprised of 90% Mourvèdre and 10% Grenache aged in oak casks. It’s deeper and richer, with an almost Northern Rhône-like gaminess in its smoke, black fruits, peppery herbs, and meaty aromas and flavors. With full-bodied richness and ripe tannic structure, drink it over the coming 15 years or more."
