Domaine de Majas Syrah

"Cotes Catalanes is one of the most important IGPs in the Languedoc-Roussillon region of southern France, covering the Pyrenees-Orientales department on the border with Spain. Vineyards cover the eastern foothills of the Pyrenees mountain chain, an area also used for the Cotes du Roussillon, Banyuls and Collioure appellations. The IGP exists to provide a geographic indication for wines that are made outside the existing AOC vinification requirements or permitted styles."

This Syrah offers black fruit, with black pepper notes, spicy hints and liqueur, and red fruit flavors. The nose produces scents of balsamic and liquorice notes. It displays a very pleasant freshness and balanced, and subtlety.

On the palate it has a good mouthfeel, light, medium-bodied, well-defined and with bright acidity. A slight chocolate bitterness which ends up being dominated its fruitiness (blackcurrants), the smoothness of its tannins and its great persistence. A very interesting Syrah. A rustic, yet elegant wine.

Food Pairing: Lamb, Beef, Hard Cheeses. $19.99

Domaine de Majas Rouge

"Cotes Catalanes is one of the most important IGPs in the Languedoc-Roussillon region of southern France, covering the Pyrenees-Orientales department on the border with Spain. Vineyards cover the eastern foothills of the Pyrenees mountain chain, an area also used for the Cotes du Roussillon, Banyuls and Collioure appellations. The IGP exists to provide a geographic indication for wines that are made outside the existing AOC vinification requirements or permitted styles."

The Rouge from Domaine Majas is a blend of old vine Carignage and Grenache. It displays a brilliant ruby colour with an explosive nose of blackberries and cherries. On the palate, this wine has intense black fruit concentration, astonishing minerality, and tannins that just melt in your mouth. Delicious and enjoyable

Try it alongside lamb, steak, mac and cheese, mushrooms, and roasted vegetables. $21.00

Ex Umbris Syrah

We love everyting from Washington State vintner Owen Roe and the Ex Umbris Syrah is no exception! The label may be non-descript, but the wine is anything but.

"The 2012 Ex Umbris is a great expression of the bold fruit flavors from that year. Bursting with aromas of red plum, blueberry and pink peppercorn. The palate is filled with refreshing flavors of fresh summer blackberries, currant, and dark chocolate with noticibly structured acidity and silky tannins." $28.00

Domaine Saint-Lannes Cotes de Gascogne

"Domaine de Saint-Lannes spreads across the sprawling slopes so typical of the region. The surface under vine is 49 hectares with a clay and limestone soil which is an ideal site for the white grape varieties grown there. The south facing slopes ensure early ripening as well as perfect drainage. The continental climate, hot summers and cold winters, is beneficial for the healthy development of the vegetative cycle of the vines. The average age of the vines is 27 years.

Pale yellow with silvery glints and a youthful rim. Vibrant aromas of lively citrus and exotic fruit on the nose give way to a fresh, nicely balanced palate and long finish that is clean and aromatic."

This Cotes de Gascogne makes for a refreshing aperitif, or pairs well with salads, goat's cheese, charcuterie, fois gras, and delicate white fish.

Domaine du Salvard 'Unique' Sauvignon Blanc

"Domaine du Salvard has been a working domaine since 1898, through five hardworking generations of the Delaille family. Today, all forty-two hectares of vineyards are farmed by the capable brother team of Emmanuel and Thierry Delaille, with help from their father Gilbert.

The Brothers Delaille must have chosen "Unique" because of its incredible taste and ridiculously low price. Clean, bright, and zesty, this little vin de pays is your perfect solution to just about everything you can possibly imagine." $16.99

Domaine Gachot-Monot Cote de Nuit-Villages

"The wines of Gachot-Monot represent some of the best values in the Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant portfolio – not because they are the least expensive, but because they offer an outstanding price-to-quality ratio. Damien Gachot may work the vineyards of the lesser known Côtes de Nuits Villages appellation, but he works his vines as if they were premier cru fruit from Nuits-Saint-Georges. This fifth-generation vigneron and his Danish wife, Lise, farm twelve hectares in the village of Corgoloin, in between Nuits-Saint-Georges and Beaune.

To get to the nitty gritty: you get a lot of Burgundian style, class, depth, and complexity for a great price."

$34.99

"The lost hamlet of Blagny, up in the hills between Puligny-Montrachet and Meursault in the Côte d'Or in Burgundy, is home to Domaine Comtesse Bernard de Chérisey. You may have heard the name "Blagny" before, attached to a bottle of premier cru Meursault-Blagny, or perhaps even a bottle of the increasingly rare Blagny rouge. Monks were the first inhabitants, planting vines in the 14th century. This almost magical, lost-in-time corner of the world boasts a unique microclimate, with a slightly different average temperature, exposition and soil than the rest of Burgundy.

The de Chérisey Meursault-Blagny 1er Cru La Genelotte is from a vineyard just north of Blagny, on the Meursault side of course, high on the slope above the village. The wine is a powerful, classic, long-lived Meursault. The Genelotte vineyard is also a monopole meaning Laurent and Hélène are sole proprietors.

This has a lot of flesh for a Blagny, and a character more rustic than the Puligny's, as usual. And oh, those stones! You can taste and feel them."

Regis Bouvier Gevrey Chambertin

"Régis Bouvier in Marsannay achieves a rare hat trick in Burgundy, the mastering of all three colors–red, white and rosé, through reasonable yields and high quality terroirs. Bouvier makes the best Burgundian rosé that we have ever tasted, his whites are delicious, with their own particular character completely unlike other Chardonnays from Burgundy, and his reds are his crowning achievement, managing to be wild and exciting while refined and elegant at the same time.

Profound aromas of spice, pepper, smoke, and small red fruits galore leap out of the glass. Deep, bold, and masculine, this wine will reward those who choose to cellar it for a few years."

$58.00
