|Region||France, Languedoc-Roussillon, Cotes de Roussillon|
We've been touting the south of France as a great growing region for amazing values and this is definitely top of the class. Altitudes is a great find from the Cotes de Roussillon region in southern France - A blend of 50% Grenache, 40% Syrah and 10% Carignan - the same blend found in many great Chateauneuf-du-Pape reds, which are from the region just north of Roussillon. This delicious red has a touch of earthy flavour, adding distinction to the pure fruit notes. Bright juicy fruits, with a well-integrated earthiness & a hint of smoke round out the complexities on the pallet. A wonderfully balanced, focused wine, bursting with character. A gorgeous food wine to pair with spiced lamb burgers or classic coq au vin.
Domaine Raimbault-Pineau Coteaux du Giennois Loire Blanc 2018This beautiful new Loire Valley white will be turning heads this season. A steal for the quality, this stunning 100% Sauvignon Blanc rings in the stylings of a baby Sancerre! Raimbault Pineau is a wonderful new winery we discovered this past holiday season and we were thrilled to bring in this beauty when we tasted the new vintage. Located in the heart of the village of Sury-en-Vaux (5 km from Sancerre), Domaine Raimbault-Pineau was formed by a family of Sancerre winemakers that have been producing wine for over 3 centuries.This beautiful Coteaux du Giennois Blanc is rich and aromatic and combines the freshness of soft citrus fruit with a lovely, bright minerality. Very pleasant and refreshing, this wine is excellent as a dry aperitif, with fresh oysters and other shellfish. **Tastes even better while enjoying outside in the sun!
