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 Coteaux d'Enserune
100% Viognier

Food pairing: This is one of the most delicious and intriguing viognier wines you can find anywhere.  Made from organic grapes by a master oenologue, this is his own private cuvée. Notes of soft citrus and lychee with wonderful minerality, rather than the more common highly floral notes of Viognier.  Wonderful with grilled fish, curried chicken, or with appetizers of cheese, olives and chips!

A.O.P. Languedoc
45% Carignan, 45% Mourvèdre, 5% Syrah, 5% Grenache Noir
