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 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."

Mas Mudigliza "Cauda Louis" Cotes Catalenes Blanc 2016

92 Our Score
(3/2019) Vigneron Dimitri Glipa grows grapes at his Mas Mudigliza estate in the high elevation foothills of the Pyrenees. One of our favorite brokers, Thomas Calder, discovered this very special property and began exporting to smart buyers in the US not that long ago. Mas Mudigliza has gained quite a reputation amongst super wine geeks, a group we proudly associate ourselves with. This wine blends 70% Grenache Gris (not blanc or noir, but the pink-ish hued "Gris"), with 30% Macabeo (aka Viura in Spain's Rioja) to produce a completely viscous and densely concentrated white wine that is plump, but with searing minerality. With just a hint of new oak flavor, complex notes of anise, pine, lime, pear, nectarine, cherry and salty, jagged silver rocks combine to produce a totally singular white wine experience. Drinkable now and over the next 10 years, this wine is magical, reminding us of Chateauneuf-du-Pape Blanc crossed with a great White Bordeaux, for a fantastically low price.

Domaine Lafage "Cuvee Centenaire" Cotes du Roussillon Blanc 2016

90 Wine Advocate
(4/28/2017) "A wine that always over-delivers, the 2016 Cotes du Roussillon Centenaire Blanc (Grenache Blanc, Grenache Gris and Roussanne) is fresh and crisp, with medium-bodied notes of citrus, white peach and a hint of pineapple. It's about as quaffable as they come and has real depth and length."

Domaine Lafage "Bastide Miraflors" Cotes du Roussillon 2016

94 Jeb Dunnuck
(11/1/2018) "A wine that almost always over-delivers, the 2016 Cotes du Roussillon Bastide Miraflors is, I suspect, the finest vintage for this cuvee to date (it's in the same league as the off-the-charts 2015). A blend of 80% Syrah and 20% Grenache from Lesquerde and Saint Martin de Fenouillet (both in the northern part of the Roussillon), aged all in older barrels and concrete tanks, it boasts rockstar notes of ripe blackberry fruits, spice, dried garrigue, and hints of chocolate. Possessing a full-bodied, layered mouthfeel, sweet tannins, and sensational purity, it's another one of those values that almost seems too good to be true. Drink it any time over the coming 3-4 years."
