  • Carpe Divem Trois

    $115.00

    This wine's real point of difference is that it is a blend of three consecutive vintages. The blend number is written in letters on the label, to identify the different blends of each vintage. CARPE DIVEM 'TROIS' (2011, 2012, 2013) was bottled in August 2016. The blending of different vintages is very common in Champagne but very rare for red wines, most famous example being Vega Sicilia's Reserva Especial. The weather makes a great difference to our vintages, and because of this, blending different vintages is a way of reducing the effect of the weather, by evening it out; poetically speaking, one might say the wrinkles of time is smoothen away. Some might say that by blending, something is lost, and in a way this is true. The mark of a particular year is effectively erased, in other words, the vintage effect. Blend of Merlot 70%, Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Cinsault 30%

  • Arnoux & Fils Vacqueyras...

    $95.00

    Rather than a date, this cuvée is about paying tribute to the beginning of the vintner history in our family. Product of the oldest vines in our family estate, this wine delivers itself in an intense garnet color, deep and attractive. It exudes a powerful bouquet in which touches of vanilla flirt with notes of red fruits, crushed strawberries, cherries, all on a tenderly spiced background. The mouth matches the nose's complexity, on a beautiful texture. wrapped by lovely tannins, ever present but sumptuously silky. It smoothly evolves toward a melting finish in which the perfect dose of wood embraces passionately the aromas from fruit ... An hymn to sensuality ...

  • Calmel & Joseph Villa...

    $30.00

    Brilliant and limpid with a pale greenish gold hue. The aromas are particularly expressive in this rather hot vintage, with stone fruit such as apricot or vine peach, evolving to floral notes of acacia blossom and aniseed. Good balance in the mouth, fresh, fruity and round, with a delicious minerality which is the signature of this wine from one vintage to the next. Softly oaky and very harmonious finish which remains superbly fresh in spite of the heatwave conditions of the vintage. A blend from 6 different fields.

  • Domaine Maby "La Fermade"...

    $42.00

    Another beautiful wine from this estate is the value-priced 2014 Lirac la Fermade. Mostly Grenache, mixed with Syrah. It’s completely destemmed and unadulterated, and raised all in concrete tanks. Framboise, crushed flowers and Grenache-driven spice characteristics all emerge from this gorgeous, charming, supple and layered 2014 that will put a smile on anyone face on release. I suspect it will evolve nicely. (The Wine Advocate, 2016) Blend: Grenache 70%, Syrah 20%, Mourvedre 10%

    A wine of reddish-purple colour with exquisite violet reflections.

In the mouth, the smoothness of texture and the silkiness of the tannins are astonishing.
