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.

This wine stood out among all others at a wine fair in Paris where our founders were making their selections!  It is a delicious "connoisseur" white wine.  A complex blend of rare white grape varieties, this is a very clean, refreshing and crisp white wine.  This wine pairs beautifully with hard cheeses and all seafood dishes from shrimp salad to fish grilled with a lemon, butter and parsley sauce. It's also a favorite by the glass.
