France

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
    2012 / 750 ml. | Item#35538

    RP9191 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Nov 2013
    As for the two red wines, the 2012 Bastide Miraflors is a blend of 70% Syrah and 30% Grenache aged in a combination of concrete tanks (for the Grenache) and demi-muids (for the Syrah). It went through a six week maceration, which no doubt explains the wine’s seriously intense fruit. Notes of violets, forest floor, black cherry jam and blackberries make an appearance in this medium-bodied, high-toned, dense, rich, complex, well-delineated red wine. Drink it over the next several years.

  3. Chateau Maris Les Anciens

    Cru La Livinière
    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.

  12. Chateau Maris Les Planels

    2012 / 750 ml. | Item#45828

    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.

    WE8787 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 7/1/2020
    Smoke and crushed mineral tones accent ripe black cherry and preserved plum on the nose of this Grenache-based rosé made from both red and white grapes. Black-fruit flavors on the palate are concentrated, muted by hints of earth and dried herbs. The finish is edged by fine tannins and a touch of heat. Drink through 2022.
