AOP Languedoc Grès de Montpellier
42% Grenache, 41% Syrah, 15% Mourvedre, 2% Carignan
This lively red blend entices with its vivid, berry color, velvety feel and pleasant minerality. Cassis, menthol and spices delight the nose. A well-balanced pallet expresses red fruit and gray pepper then blossoms into fresh laurel and mint. Les Gravières won Gold at the Concours General Agricole Paris, 2016. The vineyards are Terra Vitis certified.
60% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, 20% Malbec
Food Pairing: A good choice with hearty meat dishes, sausage and bean dishes and strong cheeses. This Maitresse is charming!
Silver Medal Milliseme Bio 2018
Silver Medal au Concours des Grands Vins de Frances à Mâcon 2015
Silver Medal au Concours general agricole de Paris 2015
40% Mourvèdre, 30% Grenache Noir, 30% Syrah
This organic blend of Mourvèdre, Grenache and Syrah enchants with deep red fruit on the palate followed by delicate herbs and spices and a rich finish. Tannins are firm, yet velvety. Made by a leading lady of Languedoc winemaking, Laurence Jougla, whose family vineyards are abundant in diverse soils, imbuing her wines with beautiful richness and softness.
A.O.P. Minervois La Livinière
70% Syrah, 20% Grenache Noir, 10% Carignan
Food pairing: Luscious with Chicken Curry and Spiced Jasmine Rice; Scampi and Sweet Pepper Sauté with Ouzo Cream Sauce; and Barbequed Red Mullet (or Redfish) with Sauce Provençale (Tomatoes, Garlic, Black Olives, Basil).
65% Syrah, 20% Old Carignan, 15% Grenache Noir
This organic red delights with its aromatic sweetness of vanilla and chocolate. Cashew and a touch of smokiness round out the nose. The generous mouthfeel is soft and elegant, yet expressive. A “signature” of this domaine, Cuvée Signée embodies the Saint-Chinian terroir and the Domaine des Jougla style — tradition balanced with innovation making this an all time favorite red wine.
Grenache, Syrah, Old Carignan
Food pairing: Luscious like a ruby red cashmere scarf .......settle in with someone you love to talk to about the stars and drink this with Daube Languedocienne (Rich Red Wine Beef Stew); or Slow Cooked Osso Buco with Prunes, Oranges and Leeks. Out of this world!
I.G.P. Pays D’Oc
60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 10% Petit Verdot
Food Pairing: This wine has some age in the bottle and it is fabulous! Enjoy every drop with a steak, beef or pork stir fry, or pasta with meat sauce. It is an unusual blend for the Languedoc but, Verena Wyss, the fine winemaker who moved here decades ago from Switzerland, has created a jewel!
Merlot, Grenache, Syrah
Food Pairing: This wine is full of black fruit flavors with melted tannins and a slight caramel undertone. Stunning from the 'Valley of Light' domaine. Wonderful with meat trays of sliced pork (porchetta with truffles, or Pata Negra if available) or baked chicken breast with stuffed prosciutto and cheese.
40% Carignan, 30% Grenache Noir, 30% Syrah
We first found this award winning wine at a Fitou tasting in Paris. We tasted 15 or more Fitou wines and this wine stood out far above all others. It is powerful but the tannins are well integrated and the aromas and flavors are lusciously delicious. Try it with pan roasted duck in 5 spice powder and a port sauce. Or simply with a steak or burger for a special treat!!
IGP Pays de Caux
85% Syrah, 15% Cabernet Franc
This organic, medium-bodied red boasts sultry aromas of black fruit, smoky spices and herbs that enhance an opulent palate of complex fruitiness, Asian spices and Sichuan pepper. Syrah blended with Cabernet Franc imparts a beautiful, clear ruby color.
I.G.P. Pays d’Oc
Food Pairing: Try it with Chicken, Prune and Green Olive Skewers with a Blueberry Vinaigrette Drizzle, or Lamb Curry with Dried Currants and Apples or just make it your new Barbecued Everything wine!! It is irresistible!
30% Carignan, 30% Grenache, 20% Mourvèdre, 20% Syrah
Food Pairing: This is a serious food wine. The husband and wife team hand tend all of the vineyards themselves and are some of the finest winemakers in the region. Think grilled steaks, stews, pork stuffed with prunes and rosemary...such a delight! This wine will keep and age beautifully for 8-10 years.
