2013 Château Trians Coteaux Varois en Provence Rouge (Previously $14)

SKU #1238497

Like a southern Rhône wine, this blend of Grenache and Syrah has loads of black-fruited flavors with spices and a supple, loamy earthiness. Unlike many of the ultra-ripe baked qualities we expect in Côtes du Rhône, this wine leads with more freshness and brighter flavors. Coteaux Varois en Provence is in the west center of the appellation and is ringed by hills and mountains to the south, north and west. The soils are mostly limestone and clay with the two main distinctions being altitude (most vineyards average 350 meters) and a continental climate influence. The surrounding mountains and hills act as natural barriers. Our newest DI producer from the region, Château Trians has the added benefit of having all north-facing vineyards. In 1989, Jean-Louis Masurel took over the 50-acre vineyard and began modernizing and shifted to organic production. Arriving just a month ago, his rosé quickly sold out, but his white and reds are tremendous offerings and exceptional values.

Trians is one of my favorite new estates in the south of France. The white and rosé are fresh and inviting but the reds are a true discovery. The Rouge's blend of Syrah and Grenache are loaded with purity. Fresh brambly black fruit with ripe wild berry notes lead to a red that reminds you of the Rhone but with a livelier fresher finish. 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.
