Wines of the Week

Each week, we select a few wines from our shop for a 10% discount and some spotlight as to why we think they're so great!

015 Condrieu, Gilles Flacher 'Les Rouelles,' Rhone, France - Condrieu is arguably the northern Rhone's most distinctive wine appellation and certainly produces the finest Viognier in the world.  Condrieu's whites strike an unusual balance between delicate perfume and substantial body, produced in tiny quantities, and only in 7 parishes -Limony, Chavanay, Malleval, Saint-Michel-sur-Rhone, Saint-Pierre-de-Boeuf, Verin, and Condrieu itself.  The vineyards lie within a nine mile stretch of the Rhone River, mostly on very steep slopes, typically placed on south and southeast facing granite slopeswith the best sights having a topsoil of mixed chalk, flint, and mica.  There are currently a total of 170 hectares devoted to Condrieu production, which is quite small, and combined with famously low yields, makes the wines rare and expensive.  The Flacher family has been making wine in Charnas since 1806, with 6th generation Gilles now managing an estate of 8 hectares, mainly in St. Joseph. "Les Rouelles" Condrieu is sourced from organic vineyards in terraced, granite soils, and aged for 10 months in new French oak.  The wine is rich and golden color with a fragrant nose of white fruit, citrus, honey and white flowers, followed by a full bodied, round and smooth mouthfeel with bright, balanced acidity.  It pairs well with sushi, sashimi, and chicken or pork vegetable stir fries.

2020 Sablet, Domaine Piaugier, Rhone, France - Cotes du Rhone Sablet is an appellation in the southern Rhone covering 300 hectares of vineyards, producing mostly red wines. Reds and roses must include at least 40% Grenache, and a minimum of 25% of Syrah and/or Mourvedre.  The village is located in the east of the area covered by the cotes du Rhone Villages Appellation, 12 miles east of the town of Orange.  The area is characterized by sandy soils (sable is the French word for sand) which provide excellent drainage.  Domaine de Piaugier vineyards are located in and around the village at the foot of the jagged Dentelles de Montmirail in the Vaucluse department.  Jean-Marc Autran, now cultivates 3.5ha in Gigondas, 12.5ha in Sablet, and 14ha of Cotes du Rhone, with vines between 25 and 50 years old in a variety of soil types farmed sustainably and hand harvested.  The Sablet is 75% Grenache, and 25% Syrah from sand, clay, and silt soil, with the Grenache fermented in cement tank and the Syrah in 3 to 4 year old barrels.  It shows black fruit aromas, with hints of pepper and licorice, followed by a pleasant smooth mouthfeel with underlying notes of earthy dust.  It is a great pairing with pork stew or jambalaya.

2019 Vacqueras, Domaine de Montvac 'Vincila,' Rhone, France - Vacqueras is and appellation for red, white, and rose wines from the vineyard-strewn areas around the parishes of Vacqueras and Sarrians in the southern Rhone.  Until 1990, Vacqueras was one of the Cotes-du-Rhone Villages, but earned an upgrade to full AOC status due to the consistent quality of the wines.  The laws are similar to its more famous neighbors of Gigondas and Chteauneuf-du-Pape with the wines required to contain at least 50% Grenache, at least 20% Syrah and/or Mourvedre, and any of the other Cotes du Rhone varieties up to 10% combined.  Many of the finest vineyards are on the steep, southwest facing limestone slopes just to the east of the town.  Founded in 1860, Domaine de Montvac has been passed from mother to daughter for the past 3 generations.  Cecile Dusserre is the current winemaker, joined by her husband Jean and her daughters in the vineyard and cellar.  The family run winery holds a total of 22 hectares of organically certified vineyards.  Vincila is a blend of 60% Grenache, planted in 1947, and 40% Syrah, planted in 1960, fermented and aged in concrete tank.  It shows bright acidity and luscious fruit with aromas of plush black cherry and mulberry accented with lavender and crushed earth, followed by a long finish with silky smooth tannins and waves of dark fruit flavor.  A great accompaniment to provencal beef stew and bbq meats.
