2019 Mas de Valériole "Beauduc" Bouches-du-Rhône Terre de Camargue Rouge (No Sulfites Added) (Previously $18)

SKU #1535987

About 10 miles south of Arles, in the regional park preserve of Camargues, lies the 15th century property, Mas de Valeriole. Encircled by the Grand Rhone, Petit Rhone and the Mediterranean, Camargue is famous for its wild horses, lakes, salt marshes and rice fields and is the largest river delta in Western Europe. The property was acquired by the Michel family in the late 1950s and is now run by Jean-Paul and Patrick Michel. Since 2006, the brothers have worked organically and are certified by Ecocert. Bouches-du-Rhone is the mouth of the Rhone, straddling the appellations of both the Rhone and Provence but in terms of varieties, style and experimentation, the wines lean further into Provencal character. The Michels work with Cabernet, Merlot, Vermentino and two varieties making serious strides in the region - Caladoc (a cross of Grenache and Malbec) and Marselan (a crossing of Grenache and Cabernet Sauvignon). The Beauduc is pure Marselan, fermented with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel tank. No sulfites are added in the winemaking process. This is a pure and exotic red with a medium body and floral and fruit undertones. Like all the wines of Valeriole, this is engaging stuff! Indigenous yeasts, unfined, light filtration, no sulfites added.

One of my favorite new reds in the store is made from a grape I have not had much affection for until now - Marselan. A crossing of Grenache and Malbec, Marselan typically finds itself used as a blending grape but in the hands of someone who truly appreciates its character, I have finally found a version that blew my mind! Feeling Italian in its aromatic profile, it is reminscent of the lighter perfumed reds coming from the Valle d'Aosta. But, coming from the south of France, it has a richer rounder sensibility. Intriguing and exciting, the "Beauduc" opens with a nose of potpourri, incense and red berries. The medium-bodied palate is seamless and elegant with balancing acidity and fine tannins. A fabulous new must-try to hit our French shelves.

The nose on this wine is expressive and beautiful. In the mouth it is full bodied and round with a structured backbone. It drinks very easy with a balance of dark fruit flavors and a subtle hint of earth,. Serious and fun it will go well with hearty foods.
