  1. Château Le Thys 2012, Cadillac, Côtes de Bordeaux

    Château Le Thys 2012, Cadillac, Côtes de Bordeaux

    Sommelier

    The opinion of the sommelier

    Cadillac is a small unknown appellation of Bordeaux, which is a shame as there are magnificent wines elaborated there! Château Le Thys is a good example. Even if it was acquired a few years ago by its neighbour Château Birot, grapes are still vinified separately so as to reveal the whole potential of this specific terroir along the Garonne River.

    If you like merlot, this wine is for you. Château Le Thys is the perfect example of what can give well grown merlot. Indeed, it displays seductive aromas and a silky texture with thin and refined tannins. This explains why merlot can be found all over the world! Chile, Australia, Hungary... it is everywhere!

     Anecdote

    A winemaker, a family

    If on a trip in the Bordeaux region you feel like tasting Château Le Thys’ wines, you’ll be welcomed in Chateau Birot, an astonishing 18th century castle. It was entirely renovated in 1989 by Eric and Helene Fournier-Casteja. Nowadays, two out of their five sons rule the Family Estate.

     Terroir

    Terroir

     Château le Thys’ vines cover around 40 hectares and their specificity is that they are surrounded by tree hedges. It’s a great perk as it protects the grapes from strong winds in their youth (when they are too fragile to stand it) and the soil from erosion.

  2. Domaine des Grands Chemins 2012, Crozes-Hermitage

    Domaine des Grands Chemins 2012, Crozes-Hermitage

    Sommelier

    The opinion of the sommelier

    This nice wine is especially typical of the Crozes-Hermitage renowned appellation. It displays aromas of red berries enhanced by refined spicy flavours. I hope you will appreciate as much as I did the length of this wine that remains long on the palate after swallowing. The perfect wine for French syrah lovers ! It will perfectly pair with a roasted rabbit with mushrooms.

    Grape variety

    Syrah is the only black grape variety in the northern Rhône Valley and is mainly known for its aromatic complexity. It gives wines powerful spices and flowers aromas (mainly pepper and violet). Wines elaborated with syrah are usually fit to age a few years provided the grapes grew up on a good terroir and give very tasty aromas with time.

     Anecdote

    A winemaker, a family

    Delas winery is renowned on one hand for having the support of the best grape growers in the Rhône Valley and on the other hand for having developed exceptional winemaking skills in its 180 years of existence. To strengthen its presence in Crozes-Hermitage, Delas winery acquired in 2006 Domaine des Grands Chemins to benefit from it’s the perfect exposure of the vines.

     Terroir

    Terroir

     Crozes-Hermitage’s vines are planted on hills particularly exposed to the strong winds blowing almost all the time through the north of Rhône Valley. In addition to protecting the grapes from rot and diseases, this wind gives the vines a lot of freshness which allow winemakers to elaborate very complex and refined wines.

     Anecdote

     The winemaker

    Before opening a winery, Chales Joguet was a painter. He has been between the first wine makers in the Loire region to adopt the enclosed winemaking that consists in dividing the vine in smaller areas and vinifying separately the grape coming from each section !"

     Terroir

    The terroir

    The AOC designated Saint-Joseph is located in the north of the Rhône Valley. The soil is granitic. The terraced vineyard benefits from a south sun exposure that allows the grape to mature and prosper at sun.

  4. Côtes-du-Rhône 2014, Côtes-du-Rhône

    Côtes-du-Rhône 2014, Côtes-du-Rhône

    Sommelier

    The opinion of the sommelier

    This Côtes-du-Rhône’s purple flashy colour suggests that the wine will be fresh and lively. On the palate, the wine is indeed lively and comes along with soft melted tannins that enhance the explosive aromas of flowers and red berries. Just after swallowing, pay attention to the remarkable length of that wine and take the time to appreciate the nice spicy aftertaste. If you enjoy refined wines, this bottle is for you !

    Grape variety

    Grenache and syrah are the two main varieties in the Côtes-du-Rhône appellation. However, grenache comes from Aragon, in Spain. It is one of the most cultivated grape varieties in the world and it spreads thanks to the intense aromas of ripened black and red berries it gives to the wines. Syrah brings to the wine fresh and spicy aromas hence ensuring the right level of complexity and a perfect balance.

     Anecdote

    A winemaker, a family

    In the Bastide Family, the wine is a matter of passion and tradition. The family has been in charge for 4 generations, and it’s not about to stop. Nowadays, Eric Bastide and his son Robin carry on the tradition of excellence of the family. Robin even started bringing his own touch by starting a project of modernization of the winery./p>

     Terroir

    Terroir

     Domaine de l’Olivier is made of 48 hectares of old vines planted on hillsides. The old vines especially enjoy these slopes and their southern exposure. Moreover, the soil is made of clay which gives more complexity to the wine. However, old vines exposed south could give wines that lack of freshness, which is not the case thanks to the strong wind that constantly blows on the grapes.
