2008 Domaine Faverot "Mazet" Côtes du Luberon (Previously $13)

SKU #1075807

The Mazet is a traditional and super tasty red made from the classic local grapes of the area, Carignan, Syrah and Grenache. It has a deep red color with an intense minerally nose with red fruit notes. On the palate it is round, medium to full-bodied with again, dark fruit flavors of blackcurrant and raspberries. The finish is long with hints of spice. Terrific with lamb burgers. 13% abv.

If you are looking for one of those perfect holiday office or personal party red wines at a very reasonable price that tastes as if it is three times the price than it really is and will impress virtually everyone, then you need to look no further than this lovely Gem. Comprised of Syrah, Grenache, and Carignan, this relatively full-bodied, immensely interesting, wonderfully drinkable red is deeply colored, provides lovely aromatics of currants, cherries, anise, and dusty minerality, that carries over perfectly to round, well-integrated, fairly complex set of broad flavors. This will be one of our house reds for the holidays, according to Anderson. And only 13.0% ABV (Jim Barr)
Drink from 2011 to 2016

Rhone Blends

Country:

France

- 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. Click for a list of bestselling items from all of France.
Sub-Region:

Rhone

- 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.
