The Verquière estate has been passed down from father to son for many generations and is now managed Thibaut Chamfort. Following age-old traditions and sustainable practices, the estate was recently certified organic. The Côtes-du-Rhône is a blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Syrah, grown on chalky clay soils with loads of large pebbles in the vineyards. Verquière recently returned to us after a long hiatus and we are pleased to have them back.

Outstanding sparkling wine from the Languedoc? Absolutely and resoundingly, YES! There will be those of you who scoff at the price of this wine, and claim that a sparkling wine set so low will never be worth any serious consideration. Well, those of you would be WRONG.

What he was referring to is the pure flavor of red cherries, sweet but firm, not at all overripe; and the forest-floor scent of dried leaves in early fall, as well as the mushrooms pushing up through the ground beneath them. And then there’s the burr of the tannins, fruit-filled yet mouth-sticking, making each sip last for minutes at a time. The 2013 vintage was exceptional in Naoussa, free of extremes, but credit ...
