2016 Domaine la Croix Belle "Caringole" Côtes de Thongue Rouge

SKU #1306654

Just outside the city of Montpellier lie the vineyards of La Croix Belle, a family owned and operated Domaine that traces it roots back to the region more than two centuries. Francoise and Jacques Boyer assumed contril of the property in the late 70s with an eye towards making clean expressive wines reflecting the region. A lot of replanting was done, yields were lowered and modern winemaking techniques and facilities were adopted. This eye for detail had delivered us some of the freshest and most compelling values of the season. The Caringole is a blend of Syrah (65%), Merlot (20%) and Carignan (15%) that is brought up in stainless steel tank. It is a vibrant red with fresh berry notes and a delicious lively palate.

What an amazing little everyday red for under $10! Mostly Syrah and vinified in stainless steel, this is bright, fresh and ready to drink now. It's got a bounty of red, ripe fruit and a well integrated structure. A must for anyone looking for a great value for weeknight wines.

This super value wine has a wonderful dark red color. In the mouth it is soft and creamy and very easy to drink. Full bodied with nice red fruit flavors, it is not a fruit bomb but a well made dry wine. It is enjoyable alone but will go well with hearty foods.

Really nice everyday wine. And I say that in the best sense of the way. Soft, juicy but with a defined structure holding it all together.

Stunning! This is such an impressive wine for this price point. Packed with plenty of black and red fruits, nicely integrated tannins and acidity that balances, there is incredible structure and complexity in this bottle for only $9! Give this a little air and see how beautifully it opens up. Wow!

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.
