2014 Château Revelette "Le Grand Blanc" Bouches-du-Rhône

SKU #1249325

One of the standard-bearers from this organically-certified, 30-hectare estate run by German transplant Peter Fisher in the Coteaux d’Aix-en-Provence AOC, the 2014 Château Revelette "Le Grand Blanc" Bouches-du-Rhône surprised K&L's French Regional wine buyer Keith Mabry when he first tasted with the winemaker. "Peter and I played a little game when we tasted the Grand Blanc," says Keith. "He asked me to guess the varietals. I could see that there was some barrel-fermented character that lent richness and stone fruit qualities, but there was a lot of minerality and underlying acidity. I hedged and guessed local varieties: Clairette, Rolle and maybe some Ugni Blanc. All good guesses, he said, but: 'You’re wrong!' The wine is Chardonnay and Roussanne with a splash of Sauvignon Blanc! Even so, the wine is spectacular and I have had nothing but rave responses from my fellow tasters."

- 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.
