2010 Domaine Cantarelles "Rosé de Fayel" Costières de Nîmes (Previously $13)

SKU #1072677

Domaine des Sources is owned by Jean-François Fayel. The estate is located southeast of the city of Nîmes. This area was once the delta for the Rhône River and is considered part of the Rhône Valley as opposed to its neighbor, the Languedoc. The domaine vineyards are blessed with an excellent location and cailloux-based soils (similar to Châteauneuf-du-Pape’s) which create a spectacular environment for grape growing. Rosé de Fayel is a new cuvée from the domaine, and is comprised of 65% whole-berry crushed Cabernet Franc, 30% Syrah and 5% Grenache. It displays beautiful high toned cherry notes and mineral. This wine is very focused and racy with bright acidity. According to the Wine Spectator: "Plump, with tasty cherry and watermelon fruit flavors and a round, savory herb-tinged finish. Drink now."

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

- Legendary wine-producing region in southeast France. Stereotypically speaking, Rhone wines are high in alcohol, and the majority produced is red. The northern Rhone is best known for outstanding 100% Syrah wines from areas such as Cote Rotie and Hermitage, as well as for fabulous white wines from Condrieu (where Viognier is king). In the southern Rhone, look for spicy, full-bodied wines that are blends of Grenache, Syrah, and other varietals coming from appellations such as Chateauneuf du Pape, Gigondas, or Rasteau. Wines labeled as Cote du Rhone or Cotes du Rhone Village (a cut above generic Cotes du Rhone) are frequently found here in the US because they often represent some of the best values on the market.
