2014 Château Revelette Coteaux d'Aix en Provence Rouge

SKU #1249309

Peter Fischer is a German-born, California-trained winemaker who makes classic, elegant wines in Provence. His farming follows biodynamic practices and is certified organic; his winemaking is as low-intervention as possible. Unlike most other Provence producers, Peter’s primary focus is on his red and white wines. About 50% of his production is red, where most Provence producers may dedicate about 10%. This red blend of 20% Grenache, 48% Syrah, 27% Cabernet Sauvignon (which has become an important secondary variety in the region) and 5% Carignan really captured my imagination. Beautiful notes of black currants, black cherries and spices. I believe that the Rhône varieties and Cabernet Sauvignon have found a synergy here in Provence that is lacking in many other areas. Cabernet can express itself well without getting lost or dominating the flavor profile. (Keith Mabry, K&L French Regional buyer)

- 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.

- 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.
