France

The French did not invent winemaking. They simply perfected it. And while producers in other nations have tried to imitate these unbelievable french wines, the magic of their terroirs can never be duplicated. You may taste Cabernet from around the world, but perhaps none as elegant and regal as Bordeaux. You may try Pinot Noir or Chardonnay from various climates, but none with the earth-bound soul and ethereal reach of Burgundy. You may drink sparkling wine from many countries, but there is only one Champagne.

Likewise, the Syrah of the Northern Rhône and the Malbec of Cahors are unlike any expression of those grapes you will find in California, Argentina, Australia or elsewhere. And let us not forget Alsace, which sets the international standard for Riesling, Gewurztraminer and Pinot Gris, or the Loire Valley and its one-of-a-kind Chenin Blanc and Cabernet Franc.

  1. Bastide Miraflors

    Syrah & Vieilles Vignes de Grenache
    2015 / 750 ml. | Item#35538

    RP9494 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 28th Apr 2017
    This wine is almost too good to be true. A blend of 70% Syrah and 30% Grenache that was brought up in concrete tanks (Grenache) and demi-muids (Syrah), the 2015 Bastide Miraflors Vieilles Vignes reminded me of a mini Syrah from California’s Manfred Krankl (yes I just compared a $14 Syrah to Sine Qua Non). It’s a ripe, sexy, heady beauty that exhibits a deep, purple color as well as killer notes of smoked meats, chocolate, blackberry and black raspberries. Deep, unctuous, open knit and layered, it continues to change in the glass, has a seamless and silky profile, and not a hard edge to be found. It’s a sensational value that needs to be tasted to be believed. Drink it anytime over the coming 2–4 years.

  3. Tessellae Old Vines

    Grenache Syrah Mourvèdre
    2014 / 750 ml. | Item#36175

    RP9090 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Jul 2015
    A stunning bargain from Lafage is the 2014 Tessellae Old Vines, a blend of 50% Grenache, 40% Syrah and 10% Mourvedre, all aged in concrete. Much of it comes from 70-year-old vines planted in limestone and clay soils. A delicious, dense ruby wine with notes of red and black cherries, earth, spice, pepper and a touch of Provençal garrigue. Fresh vibrant acidity is also present, and the wine is uncomplicated, but rich, fleshy and very well balanced. Drink it over the next 2–3 years.

  4. Chateau Maris Les Planels

    RP9292 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 29th Apr 2014
    Made from 100% Syrah, the 2012 Minervois Syrah Les Planels is impressive! Offering classic cassis, raspberry, licorice and hints of vanilla, it has fabulous purity, a lively, yet voluptuous and layered texture and a great finish. Hard to resist now, it should evolve gracefully for a solid 7–8 years.
    SP9090 pts. - Wine Spectator - Apr 30, 2016
    There is a freshness behind the savory spice and meaty notes in this medium-bodied red, with bright red berry, plum and bitter chocolate flavors pushing through midpalate. Grippy tannins define the zesty, herb-tinged finish. Drink now through 2018. 1,100 cases made.

    2013 / 750 ml. | Item#43720

    RP91+91–93 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 29th Apr 2015
    I loved the 2013 Minervois la Liviniere les Anciens, and this blend of 100% Carignan knocks it out of the park with its liquid violet, crushed rock, peppery herbs and fresh plum and berry fruits. Medium to full-bodied, with a seamless, elegant profile that the hallmark of the vintage, it has fine tannin and a great mid-palate. It should drink nicely on release and have 5–7 years of longevity.
    WS9090 pts. - Wine & Spirits - June 1, 2016
    From vines planted in 1922, the fruit fermented in concrete tanks and open wooden vats, this is tough, tangy carignan, the fruit tart and red, like seedy raspberries laced with earthy spice. The tannin ropes through the wine like gristle in a steak, the wine chewy without being heavy. For carignan, it’s almost elegant.

    WE8888 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 7/1/2020
    Watermelon and red cherries perfume this massively fruity, forward blend of Syrah (70%) and Grenache (30%). A bold expression of rosé it throbs with juicy, primary red fruit, but a crush of minerals and bright tangerine acidity keeps it bright. The finish is marked by a touch of warmth.
