Domaine Gilles Troullier "L'Espirit du Temps" Cotes Catalanes Rouge 2013

94 Wine Advocate
(4/2015) "Checking in as 100% Grenache, the downright sexy 2013 Côtes Catalanes l'Esprit du Temps has full-bodied richness and depth to go with rock-star notes of black raspberry, crushed violets and hints of pepper. It has a serious amount of texture, yet stays light, elegant and pure. It too will have a decade or more of longevity."

Domaine Leon Barral "Jadis" Faugeres 2009

93 Our Score
Made from hand-harvested 30-60 year old biodynamically farmed grapes, the Jadis is a serious wine that impresses with its distinctive savory, earth-driven tones and complex fruit and floral flavors. A blend of 50% Carignan, 30% Syrah and 20% Grenache, all of which are grown in schist soil, it is weighty and elegant with a velvety mouthfeel and a chewy tannin structure. While it is made for the cellar, drinking it now is quite enjoyable. Just make sure to allow at least a few hours in a decanter. From importer Kermit Lynch.

Domaine Lafage "Miraflors" Cotes du Roussillon Rose 2016

91 Wine Advocate
(4/28/2017) "Light in color, yet not in flavor, the 2016 Côtes du Roussillon Miraflors Rose (60% Grenache, 30% Mourvèdre and 10% Carignan) offers terrific notes of white cherries, strawberries and rose petals in a medium-bodied, layered, impeccably balanced style that's just hard to resist. It doesn't have the chiseled feel of the Grande Cuvee, but it offers just as much pleasure."

Domaine Leon Barral Faugeres Rouge 2011

93 Wine Advocate
(4/2015) "The classic 2011 Faugères offers awesome complexity in its black cherry and currant-like fruit, saddle leather, licorice and cured meat-like aromas and flavors. Medium to full-bodied, rich, textured and voluptuous, this puppy is overflowing with character and will have 10-12 years of longevity."

Domaine Gilles Troullier "De-La" Cotes Catalanes Rouge 2013

92+ Wine Advocate
(4/2015) "The 2013 Cotes Catalans De-La and this blend of 100% Syrah comes all from the granite soils around the towns of Lesquerde and Tevillach. Vinified in concrete tank and aged in a combination of tank and demi-muid (20% new), it has a terrific bouquet of black raspberry, garrigue, toasted spice and crushed rock to go with a medium-bodied, supple, elegant and beautifully pure style on the palate. Give it another year or two and drink bottles through 2023."

Domaine Frederic Brouca "Champs Pentus" Faugeres 2014

90-91 Our Score
(2/2017) This single-vineyard blend of Syrah, Carignan and Grenache offers a perfect combination of balance and power. Rich dark fruit and savory roasted meat notes pop from the glass. The flavors are vibrant with a brooding symphony of red, blue and black fruit, peppery spice and a long, clean finish. Pair with hearty winter stews, grilled lamb chops or enjoy on its own in front of a cozy fire after a long day at work.

Domaine Benjamin Taillandier "6 Roses" Vin de France Rose 2015

New low price! Regular Vin Chicago retail - $19.99!
90 Our Score
(3/2017) Benjamin Taillandier makes wines that are much lighter and lower in alcohol than what you would typically find in the Languedoc. His "6 Roses" rose is no exception. This is not your standard juicy fruit forward rose, but something much more complex. A year in the bottle has allowed the wine to shed the initial primary fruit elements and instead intensifies mineral flavors, chalky wet stone, cured meat, and tart raspberry. This bright blend of Cinsault, Syrah, and Carignan takes a little time to open but give it an hour or so and you will be intrigued by this unique rose expression.

Domaine Lafage "Narassa" Lieu Dit Cotes du Roussillon Rouge 2014

93 Wine Advocate
(3/26/2016) "From one of the warmest sites in France, the 2014 Cotes du Roussillon Villages Lieu Dit La Narassa comes from 70-year-old vines planted in the black schist soils of Maury. Despite the rugged, hot terroir from where this beauty comes, the wine is pure silk and elegant, with lots of black raspberry, chocolate covered currants, pepper and olive notes giving way to a full-bodied 2014; it has polished tannin and a seamless texture. A blend of 70% Grenache and 30% Syrah that was aged mostly in concrete tank (20% in demi-muids), drink it anytime over the coming 4-5 years."

Chateau Coupe-Roses "La Bastide" Minervois 2015

91 Our Score
(2/2017) This wine is so complex and so delicious, with a harmonious symphony of flavors including mixed berries, wild herbs, lavender, meat, spices and pepper. Gorgeous and expressive, the Château Coupe Roses Minervois has always been one of our favorite wines to feature and this 2015 bottling looks to be their best yet. A blend of 48% old-vine Carignan, 46% Grenache, and 6% Syrah, harvested from high altitude rock and clay-limestone soiled vineyards, it offers exquisite balance, lively acidity and a long finish. If you love powerful, rustic, highly engaging French reds, this one should not be missed!
