2015 Jean-Louis Denois "Les Garrigues" Rouge

SKU #1299803

This is the Bordeaux-meets-Rhône blend you never knew you wanted. Jean-Louis Denois is an iconoclast, as independently-minded and attentive to the character of the terroir in which he cultivates his grapes as anyone we’ve encountered. This talented winemaker has an exceptional track record with K&L customers and staff alike. He creates consistently unique wines with brilliantly rendered fruit from a medley of grapes, and the 2015 Les Garrigues named for the uncultivated thyme and rosemary scrub that grows everywhere there-is an expressive blend of Syrah, Grenache, Merlot, Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon. The beauty of Denois' source vineyards is that they lie between the Mediterranean and Atlantic where they see the influence of both weather patterns. This creates diverse microclimates where you can successfully grow all these grapes with true varietal character. Hearty but not heavy, enjoy this delicious mash-up with foods like roast pork, grilled chops over roasted fennel and potatoes or maybe ahi tuna with tapena. A remarkable wine for all occasions, and all budgets.

Well, I can tell you this truly is the Bordeaux-Meets-Rhone blend I never knew I wanted. There is so much flavor and personality in this wine. Lots of soft red fruit and a pleasant kick of spice that bumped this wine up to #1 on my daily drinker list. It's hard to believe this is below 13% alcohol too. An added bonus is that it is organic. I love this wine!

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.
