Princess and The Bear

Archive Cellar

All of the wines we carry at Princess and Bear have small case productions and as each vintage varies from year to year, we want to offer tasting notes and technical information on past vintages we've carried for reference.

Below is a list of sold out wines. Click the wine name below to view the Languedoc-Roussillon sommelier’s tasting notes.

These wines are made by the most passionate winemakers and have a finesse and complexity that will keep you coming back for more. Many of the winemakers are contrarian and make wines in their own passionate way regardless of tradition or requirements to be an AOC wine.

Our many organic selections are presented below with the European Union organic leaf designation. Organic wines in the EU can use small amounts of organic sulphur, which helps make the wines remain stable over time.

IGP Côtes Catalanes
50% Grenache Noir, 50% Syrah

This lovely soft pink beauty is more complex than you might think on first look.  She begins with aromas of pink grapefruit and cherries followed by more subtle notes of raspberry and rose petals.  The palate has lovely and lively  acidity balanced with the red fruit flavors infused with vanilla and peaches. The wine is vinified using wild yeast so there is a slightly unruly character to this beauty.

Fitou Cuvée

50% Mourvèdre, 30% Carignan, 20% Grenache 

Food Pairing: In order to reveal the full potential of this wine with a strong antioxidant Mourvèdre slowly emerging, it is best to wait 4 to 5 years for it to reach maturity and thus open its aromatic palette, or it is imperative to decant it 5 to 7 hours before eating it. This will reveal the very strong character of this wine both on the very ripe black fruits but also and especially on the notes of roasting, cocoa or cinnamon.
