“Bright pink coral color. Fresh, fruity aromas of strawberry, kiwi, petite fours, and honeyed rice cake with a crisp, dry medium body and an interesting, medium-long kiwi, cherry stem, peach mango yogurt, and basil finish with clunky, chewy, fine, fruit tannins and no oak. A fresh, fruity, and tropical rose that will shine at the table.“

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.

Domaine de Beaumiere 2014 (CDR)

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.

It is in this rural village, essentially turned toward viticulture, that Claude Charpentier who represents the third generation and is heir to a long tradition of winemaking manages the Domaine. 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 2013 La Lande Cavagnac Malbec (Cahors)

“This wood-aged, perfumed wine is serious, complex and will take its time to develop. It is full of dark tannins and ripe black fruits, laced with acidity. It comes from old vines, planted in the 1970s, which give great concentration and depth to the wine.”

Dominique Piron Chenas Quartz 2014

Descriptions:

Appellation: Chénas is the smallest and rarest of the Beaujolais Crus. This comes from a vineyard that Piron runs with the three Michelin-starred Lameloise restaurant in Chagny.

The soil is granite based clay with bands of quartz crystals running through it. This is where the wine gets its name, as the quartz imparts a mineral quality to the wine which makes it very expressive without being heavy.

The nine- hectare parcel comprises vines of more than 60 years of age on a steep, east-facing slope between 310 and 380 metres up. They are all pruned in the traditional goblet (head-pruned) style of Beaujolais. The harvest is done entirely by hand. Only manual harvesting is allowed in the Beaujolais region.

A full-on nose of spice, earth and prettiness is mirrored on a palate that seems to bring together notes of lilac and peony before unveiling mature tannins. Supple, generous and vibrant, with graphite and deeply scented red fruits. A real stunner. Pairs well with rich, complex sauces and grilled meats.
