I'm calling this the "mini Mouton of Limoux". This 31-hectare property was purchased by the Baroness Philippine de Rothschild and her two sons in December 1998, and has been extensively renovated, producing their first vintage in 2003. Just like at all the other properties they own, everything is held to a very high standard here, including hand-picking of the grapes into small, 12-kilogram boxes to keep them whole throughout the process, just as they do at Mouton-Rothschild, Opus One and Almaviva. The blend is 50% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, 10% Grenache, 10% Malbec and 10% Syrah. The winery also won the Bronze medal at the 2013 Decanter World Wine Awards. This a one serious red packed into a modestly priced bottle; enjoy now (decant if you can) or hold onto it for another 5~10 years!
Top Value!

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.
