Bonjour délicieux! The gorgeous fruit, lovely spice and dense body of this Seigneur de Lauris will pair with many meats from charcuterie to beef. What's your pleasure? We love to bring out the black fruit in this Arnoux red while savoring crisp-roasted chicken served with tomatoes and prunes. The drizzle of balsamico in the tomatoes and prunes kicks it up a notch and makes it a perfect pairing. The winery recommends rabbit with this formidable Vacqueyras; we say braise it with green olives. If it's stormy outside, it's exactly what we would want cooking all afternoon. And finally, a sure winner will always be your favorite steak grilled to perfection, dressed au poivre. Les épices du Rhône vous remercie. No one will want it to end there, so bring out a smooth, gently tangy Port Salut cheese and fill those glasses once again. À votre santé, winelovers!
Antonio Galloni's Vinous/(Tanzer): "Inky ruby. Powerful dark fruit, vanilla and floral pastille aromas are lifted by dusty minerality and a hint of white pepper. Silky and expansive on the palate, offering juicy blackberry and cola flavors and a touch of candied flowers. Picks up a smoky quality on the spice-accented finish, which shows very good energy and thrust. In a pretty flamboyant, exotic style that reminded me of some high-end Central Coast Rhone blends."~Josh Raynolds, Jan 2014
This large estate produces a bevy of rich, fruit-forward efforts that remain more than reasonably priced. Looking at the 2011s, this is a solid vintage here and the wines make the most of the vintage, with upfront fruit and texture.
Winery: "A superb wine which is offered in a beautiful garnet-red robe which involves us towards fruity horizons with spicy notes. One finds in mouth all the complexity of the nose on generous tannins which accentuate the domination of spices. A very high-class wine... Ability to age: 10-15 years.
Pairing suggestions: Pairing food and wine: deer tenderloin, hare, goat cheese, T-Bone steak in pepper sauce."
Bottle: 750ml, cork
Varietal: 70 % Grenache, 30 % Syrah (Côtes du Rhône)
