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.

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.

This is a traditional Languedoc blend of Grenache, Syrah, Carignan and Mourvèdre.  The stars surely aligned in the resulting bright and spicy, cooked-berry blend, with a silky tannin feel as the weight of it slides across your mouth and cheeks to a gorgeous finish with some woody and mild tanned-leather tones.

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.

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
75% Syrah, 16% Mourvèdre, 9% Grenache

This Syrah-dominant blend is velvety, yet fresh and offers an entrancing perfume of violet, bergamot, and cherry.

Resolves with wafts of balsamic and iris flower and a surprise note of brioche. The vineyards are maintained using responsible viticulture and are Terra Vitis certified. Made by the award-winning winemaker Diane Losfelt.

Vin de France
100% Carignan Gris

This rare Carignan Gris varietal is a gift of golden flavors: fresh pear, chamomile, and quince.  A white wine with a dynamic personality, this organic cuvée expresses both bright, crisp notes and herbal smokiness. Because of the rarity of Carignan Gris, the domaine produced only 800 bottles of this wine. We are thrilled to be able to offer it to wine lovers in the US.

AOC Coteaux du Languedoc Pézenas

75% Syrah, 25% Cinsaut

This blend is, in a word, stunning.  Christine Mouton Bertoli is a gifted winemaker.  Her wines are as wonderful and feminine as she is.  This flagship wine has flavors of ripe cherries and mocha balanced with good herbal aromas and good acidity to keep your tastebuds alive and interested.  Think of lamb chops with spiced prunes, or Moroccan chicken.
