2014 Clos de l'Anhel "Lolo de l'Anhel" Corbieres

SKU #1251089

I met winemaker Sophie Guiraudon a few years ago at the organic wine fair Millésime Bio. It's an annual event where organic winemakers from all over the world gather to show their wines. I tasted with her and was immediately impressed with the quality of the wines. So much so, I made an arrangements to visit her winery right after the fair ended. Sophie is a true one-woman show, farming 25 acres of vines while running her humble facility in the region of Corbieres. The vines for the "Lolo" cuvee are planted on silty-clay limestone soils which lend freshness and a structure to the wine. When it’s Tuesday and you want a glass of wine to go with the roast chicken you picked up at the market or maybe a little pizza you just ordered in for the evening, the Lolo is that perfect weekday wine. “Lolo” is the expression mothers use when they tell their children to drink their milk. “Drink your Lolo, so that you can grow up big and strong,” they say. "Lolo" is a blend of 81% Carignan, 10% Syrah, 7% Grenache, and 2% Mourvedre. (Keith Mabry, K&L French Regional wine buyer)

This Carignan-based wine is loaded with perfumed blue fruit flavors and purple flower notes. Medium-bodied on the palate and with silky tannins, this is pure deliciousness in a glass, and like milk, everyone should have a little “Lolo” to go with that weeknight meal to help keep up their strength.

We're all in love with the Anhel wines, but this new vintage is a benchmark for me. Ultra pure expression of the terroir, big floral notes without the hint of perfumed artificial quality. Dark and spicy fruit and a great texture that's all about the lifted structure while maintaining the intensity. Stupidly cheap price on these.

Sophie is one of those winemakers that you just fall in love with. The way she talks about her wines, it is like her babies. She will even show you pictures of the vines if you ask. She is so passionate and her winemaking style is hands-off. Let the grape and the place speak for itself. The nose in the glass is lovely red fruit, lavender and earth. Taste it and it mirrors the nose. Such great expression that I find in organic farming. This would go great with a grilled skirt steak. Heck, it is just awesome on its own!

One of the best deals in the store for under $15 is the entry level "Lolo" from Clos de l'Anhel. There is power, structure, and balance here to rival bottles twice the price. This blend of Carignan, Grenache, and Syrah shows plenty of black raspberry fruit wrapped up in floral and lightly earthy flavors, including a salty, faintly funky bleu cheese note. If that sounds strange, it works beautifully here, and makes it a great pairing option with just about any roasted meat.

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.
