2011 Chateau de Peyrassol "La Croix Rouge" VDP des Portes de la Mediterranée (Previously $14)

SKU #1139579

Some things have changed since the Commanderie de Peyrassol first changed hands...from the Knights of Templar to the Knights of Malta, just 705 years ago. Then again, some things may have not: the vineyards are organically farmed, and fertilized only with sheep manure. This blend is crafted especially for the US market by the importer, consisting of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah in varying proportions. Fresh wild berry fruits with firm minerality and structure.

Always a staff favorite here at K&L, it comes and goes so fast that we barely have a chance to buy any for ourselves! This is a great crossover wine as well for New World wine drinkers discovering friendly Old World wines like this. This will be at all my holiday parties, as it will please every palate in the best way possible. Great food wine, great cocktail wine; it has depth, minerality, lusciousness and weight on the palate, and not too much tannin or oak influence. This is a gem not to be missed!

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.

Sub-Region:

Provence

- Provence encompasses the southeastern portion of France that borders the Mediterranean. The largest appellation in the region is the Cotes de Provence that spans 49,600 acres of land in and around Marseilles. Thirteen different varietals are grown in this appellation with the most important grapes being Carignan, Cinsault, Grenache, and Mouvedre. While much of the production is dry rose, there are many more serious wines being made from the area. Some of the most important smaller appellations within Provence include Bandol, Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence, and Coteaux Varois.
