Descriptions:

Domaine de Beaumière is located in the Provence part of the Drôme, in the village of Bouchet that once belonged to the Princes of Orange and was later bought in the XIVth century by nuns from a Cistercian Abbey.

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.“

Dominique Piron Brouilly 2015

Descriptions:

Immediately exuberant, with a diverse array of floral notes, there’s also some white pepper and crushed cherry notes. The palate, as with all of the Piron wines, is utterly pure and focused. So much great-value drinking in this.

Brouilly [broo-EE] goes marvelously with roasted or grilled chicken, fish, burgers, or pork. Pairs nicely with Camembert & Brie cheeses.
