Wine of the Day: Domaine L’Edre Cotes du Roussillon Villages 2013

Domaine L’Edre

l'edreIt seems France’s Roussillon region was made to grow fine wine. Proximity to the vine’s favorite sea, the Mediterranean, and planted in classic limestone-clay soil, winemaking talent thrives in this area. Founded by a pair of Frenchmen in 2002, Domaine de l’ Edre produces ripe yet balanced and stylish wines of terrific character and terroir definition, all done sustainably. The Cotes du Roussillon Village is a traditional blend of Syrah, Grenache and Carignan fermented and aged in once- and twice-used barrels and demi-muid. Here’s the perfect match to a leg of lamb or even a pot au feu, to veggie dishes rich in grilled peppers and eggplant, and of course to charcuterie and cheese. Celebrate the French way of good living by uncorking a bottle of L’Edre Roussillon!… Read the rest

The ’09  Chateau Meyney stands out to me for the approachability for a Bordeaux of this nature. When I first tried it upon release, January 2012, it was certainly tight, but the potential was clearly shouting out. I set a glass aside and by the end of the night, the underlying soft spice aromas really filled the glass and the fruit beneath the surface was beginning to stand out. Well made Bordeaux at this price is truly a gem. It could be viewed as our gateway wine into collecting and aging.… Read the rest

When you only make one wine, it better be good.  In the case of Grange des Peres, in the Languedoc, it is and is cult-like in its following.  We don’t always get as much as we’d like, but we scooped up little extra of the 2011 and are offering it at a killer price.  It’s a big, rich wine—for Cabernet drinkers but with a few other grapes in there to liven things up. Drink this guy with some roasted birds or steaks off the grill. – SaulRead the rest
