Le Champ des Etoiles Pinot Noir 2019
The new vintage of Mark Hoddy’s ripe, fragrant Pinot Noir has landed, and it’s tasting better than ever. It hails from a prime southern French vineyard and – because it’s made to look and taste like a good Burgundy – it’s a superb dinner party red.
Domaine de Buadelle Minervois 2016
Alexis Metge won Gilbert & Gaillard gold for his wild herb- and berry-packed Grenache blend. Hand harvested from gnarled old vines growing in the shadow of the Montagne Noire range, it’s a crowd-pleasing exclusive you mustn’t miss!
Belle Roche Cabernet Sauvignon 2019
Crafted by a former Haut-Brion talent, this blockbuster Cabernet boasts a long history of acclaim—including “French Wine of the Year” honors and multiple gold medals. Just wait until you taste the luxuriously deep, dark, cassis-loaded 2019 release.
Cabalié Vieilles Vignes 2018
Hervé Sabardiel, maker of our popular Cabalié, is so grateful for its success, he’s crafted a special, old-vine version to delight its fans. Made in the style that bolstered Roman soldiers 2,000 years ago, it’s ultra rich and boasts a top gold medal.
L’Orangeraie Pinot Noir 2019
Many top Burgundy houses have started making elegant, great-value Pinot Noir in southern France’s Languedoc region. But the Lorgeril family got here first (in 1620, to be precise!), and their Pinot Noir is a smooth-as-silk showcase of their skills.
Cabalié Coup de Coeur 2018
Hervé Sabardeil’s Cabalié is our richest French red (and a longtime customer favorite). Richer still is his “super cuvée” version that’s crafted from ancient vines and aged in fine oak; guaranteed to win the heart of any BIG reds fan.
Domaine La Domitienne 2019
Each year, our southern France specialist Mark Hoddy samples hundreds of new wines and snaps up the best for you. When he tasted Domaine La Domitienne, Mark loved its deep, plummy flavors so much, he crowned it his champion of the 2019 vintage.
Grande Réserve de Gassac Rouge 2018
World Atlas of Wine legend Hugh Johnson calls the Guibert family’s Mas de Daumas Gassac the “only Premier Grand Cru estate of the Languedoc.” Their complex Grande Réserve (made in the image of their $40+ a bottle Grand Vin) is a must-try.
