Diving Into Hampton Water Languedoc Rose 2017

#83 - Wine Spectator's Top 100 Wines of 2018!
90 Wine Spectator
(6/30/2018) "A nicely crafted rose, with a hint of creamy richness lining the strawberry, melon and white cherry flavors. A dash of minerality imparts depth through the long, mouthwatering finish. A crowd-pleaser. Grenache, Cinsault, Mourvedre and Syrah. Drink now."

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

New low price! Regular Vin Chicago retail - $38.99!
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."

Famille Dutraive "Cap O Sud" Corbiere Cinsault 2016

90+ Our Score
(8/2018) The Dutraive family, like many others in recent difficult harvests, have had to expand their horizons for sourcing grapes to produce their wines. This negociant project is sourcing Cinsault from Corbieres. It is very interesting to see these Southern French varietals through the Dutraive lens. These renditions are considerably more on the wild side than their Beaujolais bottlings. This is earthy and raw, with tons of energy and the first and only time this wine will be made!

Domaine du Pas de l'Escalette "Les Clapas" Terrasses du Larzac 2016

92 Our Score
(9/2018) Clapas translates to a "pile of stone" and refers to the rugged land where the vines are planted. The earth-driven flavors of stone and minerality are found deep within this blend of 50% Syrah, 30% Carignan and 20% Grenache. The wine is full-bodied and round with expressive and earth driven notes of stone, mineral, wild game, smoke, leather and spice. The fruit is pure and lush. This is a wine of great depth and length that fans of southern French red blends are going to simply love.

Domaine Leon Barral "Jadis" Faugeres 2012

A very special wine from one of the absolute champions of biodynamic growing. Only 126 cases made it to our shores! And our price is the lowest in the country by some margin. Holy cow, 38% off the $45 reference price!
92 Wine Advocate
(4/27/2016) "More focused and elegant than the classic cuvee, the 2012 Faugeres Jadis is a similar blend yet substitutes Syrah in place of the Cinsault. Made from 50% Carignan, 30% Syrah and 20% Grenache that spent two years in barrels, it has a healthy purple color to go with lots of Carignan black and blue fruits, violets, leather, and licorice aromas and flavors. Medium to full-bodied, elegant, layered and graceful, with ripe tannin, it too can be enjoyed anytime over the coming decade."

Coup de Jus "Zeus Gone Wild" VdF Grenache 2017

90+ Our Score
(11/2018) Coup de Jus is a new mini negociant project started by the husband and wife duo that helm the legendary cult Jura house of Domaines des Marnes Blanches. 100% Grenache, sourced from organic vineyards in the southeast of France. Everything is done in tank for this small production wine. You get all the lovely bright and fresh characteristics one would expect from the south, but it is interpreted through a Jura lense. Mother Nature has been hard on a number of wine regions recently, causing a surge in projects like these. It is nice to see producers overcome by making great wines sourced from others areas. "Zeus Gone Wild" definitely falls into that category.

Domaine de Bila-Haut "Occultum Lapidem" Cotes du Roussillon Villages 2015

94 Wine Advocate
(4/28/2017) "One of the more polished, sexy examples of the cuvee, the 2015 Côtes du Roussillon Villages Latour de France Occultum Lapidem checks in as a blend of 50% Syrah, 40% Grenache and the balance Carignan and Mourvèdre, aged all in concrete tanks. It boasts killer notes of black raspberries, cassis, pepper and licorice, with just a hint of chocolate appearing with time in the glass. This medium to full-bodied, layered and beautifully textured red is an incredible value and will be impossible to resist over the coming 4-5 years, and I'm sure it will keep even longer."

92+ Our Score
91 Wine Advocate
(4/2016) "Another winner is the 2014 Corbieres Rozeta, which checks in as a blend of 40% Carignan, and 30% each of Grenache and Cinsault. Vibrant, juicy and seamless, with lots of sweet cherry and juicy berry fruits, flowers and some walnut oil-like characteristics, this medium-bodied, beautifully balanced and unique Corbières can be enjoyed anytime over the coming 5-7 years."

Domaine de Bila-Haut "Bila Haut L'Esquerda" Cotes de Rousillion Villages 2016

94-96 Wine Advocate
(4/28/2017) "Sporting a deep purple-almost blue-color, the sensational 2016 Cotes du Roussillon Villages Lesquerde l'Esquerda has a northern Rhône-like minerality as well as notes of classic black and blue fruits, crushed flowers, ozone and licorice. Made from 60% Syrah and 40% Grenache, all from granitic soils, it's a rich, structured, full-bodied and age-worthy red that will drink nicely through 2026. The quality of this release continues to soar and there are not many values like this out there today."

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

92 Our Score
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."
