2013 Domaine Leon Barral "Cuvée Valiniere" Faugères (Previously $60)

SKU #1303583 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The Mourvèdre-dominated cuvee from this fabulous estate, the 2013 Faugères Valiniere is a blend of mostly Mourvèdre mixed with a small amount of Syrah. This inky beauty has a big, rich, ripe bouquet of blackcurrants, smoked herbs, chocolate and earth, as well as full-bodied richness, tons of richness and ripe, yet certainly present tannin on the finish. Give this killer Faugères 2-3 years of bottle age and enjoy over the following decade. It's certainly one of the wines of the vintage. (JD)  (4/2017)

- 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.
