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
60% Grenache Noir, 40% Syrah

This organic rosé dazzles with intense red fruit aromas of ripe raspberries. Lively on the palate, even tangy, its freshness lingers then resolves into bright minerality. The family-run domaine was founded in the early days of the Languedoc-Roussillon’s wine making renaissance. The vineyards lie in a valley where every one of the vineyard owners farms organically, so this is the purest fruit anywhere.

Vin de France
100% Carignan

Carignan is KING of red grapes here!  Totally adapted to this rough climate this is a stunning varietal if you keep yield low.  Dark red fruit, leather tones and smashing fresh finish. Carignan is seeing something of a renaissance as old vines (and these are over 100 years old) and small yields make a lovely, concentrated, big wine.  Only 200 cases produced.

Vin de France
100% Nielluccio

This rosé has lovely floral aromas and a special charm that comes from the Nielluccio grape which is native to Corsica, a French Island near the Languedoc.  The grape is genetically similar to the Tuscan grape Sangiovese. The wine has peach notes and you can find a whiff of wild plants, like lavender and even perhaps an herbal touch of thyme.

AOP Côtes du Roussillon 
50% Grenache Blanc, 40% Grenache Gris, 10% Roussanne

This stunning, organic cuvée was created by one of the finest female winemakers in the Roussillon. Crisp notes of citrus and white fruit make this delightfully dry cuvée the perfect, everyday white wine. A blend of rare Grenache Gris with Grenache Blanc and Roussanne, it will refresh and invigorate the palate.

AOC Limoux
90% Chardonnay, 10% Chenin Blanc

“La Coume Lumet” is an Occitan phrase meaning “Valley of Light,” a fitting descriptor for this dazzling, Chardonnay-dominant blend kissed by the crispness of Chenin Blanc. Aromas of pear and roasted almond caress the nose. The rich mouthfeel melts into a finish of buttery, toasted notes. The vineyards are maintained using sustainable, responsible viticulture and Terra Vitis certified.

AOP Languedoc
45% Syrah, 23% Grenache Noir, 16% Alicante, 16% Carignan

La Diva is a concentrated, elegant and supple wine with a beautiful complexity, it has all the character of a Grand Vin! The wine starts off very fruity (blueberries, blackcurrants) and opens up in your mouth revealing the finesse.  Matured lightly in neutral French oak barrels, this mellows the tannins and gives the wine a super smooth, long finish.

AOP La Clape
60% Syrah, 40% Grenache

This rich organic red blends Grenache Noir and Syrah. An inviting deep ruby sparkles in the glass, and this wine’s dense fragrance reveals black cherry, ripe red fruit, and a hint of violet. Flavors of plum, licorice, almond, and sweet spices glide into a lingering finish with round soft tannins.

AOP Languedoc
90% Roussanne, 10% Viognier

A complex wine with aromas of citrus flower, grapefruit and mandarin.  Some of the wine has spent time in old oak barrels giving it underlying creamy toasty notes.  On the rich and mouth-filling palate are hints of citrus fruits, spice and hazelnuts with fresh acidity and a dry finish.
