2013 Château Revelette "Le Grand Rouge" Bouches-du-Rhône

SKU #1249324

Equal parts Syrah and Cabernet, with about 20% Grenache, this is rich and powerful, but balanced and nuanced, according to K&L's French Regional wine buyer, Keith Mabry: "One of the best expressions of a Bordeaux-Rhône mash-up I have tasted in quite some time." Château Revelette is located in Coteaux d’Aix en Provence, which takes its name from the city of Aix en Provence, a famous college town and cultural destination. The appellation makes up the western section of Provence abutting the Rhône Valley and is known for having the largest diversity of terroirs, with lots of sand, clay, gravel and limestone mixed with various topographies that contribute to a breadth of mesoclimates. Revelette is about 15 miles north and east of town and is run by German transplant Peter Fisher. Peter took over the estate in 1985 and quickly shifted to organic practices in the vineyard. Unlike most other Provence producers, Peter’s primary focus is on his red and white wines, rather than rosé.

France

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.
