Q do E Preto Branco Reserva 2014

Descriptions:

Preto Branco translates into Black & White and what makes this wine interesting is that it’s a red wine made with indigenous grapes from the region of Bairrada including Baga, Touriga Nacional and a white native varietal called, Bical. Blueberries, cassis, violets, dusty cinnamon topped with shavings of allspice and gravel make this intriguing.

Domaine le Grand Destre

Descriptions:

Located in Camaret-sur-Aigues, to the north east of Orange, in the zone of Rasteau.

François Moricelly is the fourth generation managing the family-owned vineyard, where cultivating vines is an integral part of the history of the estate.

In Provencal “Grand Destré” means “Large press”: this wine press is still present on the estate. In between the two wars, it was used by François Moricelly’s great grandfather to press grapes. The non fermented sparkling juice (bourru wine) was then immediately sold to restaurants in Lyon (bouchons) just before the arrival of the new wines.

Varietals: 65% Grenache, 35% Carignan.

Tasting Notes: Beautiful garnet red colour with light purple hues. Nose opening on red berries and garrigue fruit with subtle hints of plum. Well balanced on the palate, it reveals melted tannins and concludes with a very pleasant velvety finale.

He endeavours to combine ancestral tradition with the more recent approach of sustainable agriculture aiming to preserve the environment and produce the very best her terroir has to offer.

Varietals: Grenache 80%, Syrah 20%.

Tasting Notes: Deep garnet red colour with purple hues. Delicate nose yielding aromas of red berries and violets. The mouthfeel is supple and elegant offering a smooth and velvety texture that is remarkably well-balanced.

Domaine de Cause 2014 La Lande Cavagnac Malbec (Cahors)

“This is a single-parcel wine from old vines (which date back to the 1970s). Aged in wood, this very fine wine shows sophisticated tannins, complex spice, black-plum fruits and a judicious shot of acidity. It is a fine wine, still young and showing a good potential for aging.“
