Jeff Carrel Les Darons Languedoc Rouge 2015Grenache and Carignan have long been cultivated in Southern France and represent the “forefathers” of the Languedoc Appellation’s red wines. An homage showcasing these varietals, this wine was subsequently labeled “Les Darons”, the affectionate expression for “The Parents” in the Parisian suburbs where eclectic Winemaker Jeff Carrel was born.

Tenuta La Badiola 642 Maremma Toscana 2015642° is produced on the ‘Tenuta La Badiola’ estate at the 42nd degree of latitude in the Tuscany region of Maremma. It’s unique blend of 6 different types of grapes creates a rich, luscious, complex and extremely elegant wine that combines the best of tradition with a new interpretation of European varietals. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Syrah, Sangiovese, Montepulciano (The grapes used to produce 642 are organically farmed and vinified, although the wine is not organically certified). Wine Notes: Aromas are of wild berry fruits, like blackberry and dried plum which then yield to richer impressions of candied fruit and dark chocolate. Nuances of vanilla and tobacco leaf. Rich and full-bodied in the mouth, this wine has tannins that are perfectly balanced and well integrated. A lively acidity brightens its fruit. The long-lived, delicious finish is infused with aromatic, ripe fruit.
Domaine LaFage Tessellae Old Vines Blend 2014For well over a decade we have worked with Jean-Marc Lafage at his estate in the Roussillon, and across the border in Spain where he consults on several projects. As good as his wines were, when we first met him, they only get better with each vintage. When we first made his acquaintance in Calatayud, he suggested we visit his estate in the Roussillon and the rest, as they say, is history.
