  1. Gourmandise d'un été 2016, Maison Rigal, IGP Comte Tolosan

    Gourmandise d'un été 2016, Maison Rigal, IGP Comte Tolosan

    Sommelier

    The opinion of the sommelier

    « Gourmandise d’un été » is a very innovative and delicious version of Malbec! The fruit is ripe, a hint of flower adds refinement ; the finish is sweet, long and balanced with a little bitterness. The perfect rosé for just enjoying a glass with friends at sunset with a few olives. 

    Feuille

    Grape variety

    Malbec is the grape variety with a thousand names. Malbec in Bordeaux, Auxerrois in Cahors or Côt in the Loire Valley : each region has its own name. Usually giving dark and tannic wines, it impresses us here by its clear dress and its delicacy on the palate. A really adaptive grape !

    A winemaker, a family

    Created in 1755 in Cahors, Maison Rigal has developed a unique know-how around the Malbec. Cedric, the winemaker, explores all its nuances on all the most beautiful terroirs of the Southwest. Whether it is vinified in red or rosé, Rigal brings out the best of this typically Southern grape variety. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I did !/p>

  2. Louis Soufflot 2015, AOP Mercurey

    Louis Soufflot 2015, AOP Mercurey

    Sommelier

    The opinion of the sommelier

    The south of Burgundy has long been underestimated because no Grands Crus were located there. The truth is that some amazing terroirs lie there and the little bonus of sun they get around Chalon gives a quite persistent version of pinot noir. Mercurey is doubtlessly one of the best appellation in this area ! 

    Feuille

    Grape variety

    Pinot Noir is an old-timer. Experts agree that it was already present in the first century of our era. Indeed, this grape variety would have seen the Gallics fighting against the Romans and would have even witnessed the birth of the Burgundy vineyard. That’s how it became throughout the centuries the main and then the only black variety in Burgundy.

     Anecdote

    A winemaker, a family

    The story of Primavinae began in 1951 here in Burgundy and quickly grew : now the respected winemaking company own vineyards in almost all the villages of the region, which is quite uncommon. Moreover, their vines are usually located on the best terroirs, as it is the case for Louis Soufflot’s vines throughout the villages of southern Burgundy./p>

     Terroir

    Terroir

     The vineyard of Mercurey enjoys a very special terroir because it lays on a rugged relief punctuated by small hills alternating gentle and severe slopes.This type of relief gives grapes that have benefited from various sun exposures. Therefore, the final blend will display a larger spectrum of aromas, hence a higher level of complexity.

    Château Croix de Fillol, 2014, AOC Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux

    Sommelier

    The opinion of the sommelier

    This appellation, stuck between Saint-Emilion and the southwest is a terroir I am fond of because wines there offer the same subtle minerality as in the Libournais’ appellations. I have made astonishing finds there. This château is one of those : very pleasant in the mouth, fruity and perfectly well aged. 

    Feuille

    Grape variety

Francis can also count on his wife who help him, daily, to create superb wines./p>

  4. Château Lieujean 2015, Cru Bourgeois, Haut-Médoc

    Château Lieujean 2015, Cru Bourgeois, Haut-Médoc

    Sommelier

    The opinion of the sommelier

    This month, I wanted to take advantage of the fabulous 2015 vintage in Bordeaux : I did that with the famous Château Lieujean, a safe bet of the Médoc vineyards, which is acclaimed by the greatest specialists. What differentiates this Cru Bourgeois is certainly its concentrated expression of black fruits accompanied by a subtle woody flavours. The tannins melt, the wine is supple, juicy and the finish is persistent and deep. 

    Feuille

    Grape variety

    An emblematic blend of Médoc, where Cabernet Sauvignon is predominant, associated with Merlot in smaller quantities. The Cabernet Sauvignon rather enjoys the gravelly soils of the left bank and brings an elegant tannic structure and an intense power in the mouth whereas the merlot favors the clay soils of the right bank giving balances to the wine by its suppleness and roundness.

     Anecdote

    A winemaker, a family

    Château Lieujean was founded in the 19th century. Each year for each vintage, Château features in the Cru Bourgeois’ classification which distinguishes the best Médoc wines. Every year, since 2010, the highly anticipated selection of Crus Bourgeois is unveiled to the general public and honours the best wines of the region./p>

     Terroir

    Terroir

     Located in Saint-Sauveur near Pauillac, the Château is close to the Garonne and enjoys a temperate microclimate. The Haut-Médoc’s main characteristic is its very special soils made of hard stones that lower the yields of the vines, which gives birth to ripe grapes full of quality and with concentration. It is not far from there that Chateau Lafite, Mouton Rotshchild and Latour are located.

  5. Le Rif 2014, La Ferme du Mont, Vacqueyras

    Le Rif 2014, La Ferme du Mont, Vacqueyras

    Sommelier

    The opinion of the sommelier

    In Vacqueyras, making strong wines is a tradition, with a lot of alcohol and a powerful taste. If le Rif indeed displayed these sought-after characteristics, we didn’t expect that much refinement and delicate flowery aromas. This perfectly matches with more typical flavours of ripe fruits and warm spices. Moreover, a great freshness balances the power : this wine is doubtlessly a very nice surprise ! 

    Feuille

    Grape variety

    Grenache is a variety that loves warmth and sun.

     Anecdote

    A winemaker, a family

    This month, two wines were made by the same winemaker but on very different terroirs. The challenge of growing Grenache stimulated Stéphane Vedeau. Indeed, if it’s easy to make strong wines in this area, it is way harder to make fresh, soft and delicate wines. That’s why he chose La Ferme du Mont, at the foot of a hill that brings a little freshness to the vines. Your palate will agree and appreciate this challenge taken, cheers !/p>

     Terroir

    Terroir

     Vacqueyras appellation is located on the delicate Montmirail hillsides. In a Mediterranean area, climate is chilly but not cold during winter, and very warm during summer.

  6. Hommage 2016, Domaine Cazes, AOP Côtes du Roussillon

    Hommage 2016, Domaine Cazes, AOP Côtes du Roussillon

    Sommelier

    The opinion of the sommelier

    Roussillon is getting trendy, and Hommage will help you understand why ! The appellation stopped making heavy wines hard to drink for more than a glass. Hommage is a blend of fresh and ripe black and red fruits and more sophisticated aromas like cocoa. If the aromas got fresher, the intensity remains: your palate will long remember this deep wine ! 

    Feuille

    Grape variety

    Mourvèdre is originally a Spanish variety that needs sun, a lot of sun ! The area of Perpignan is known to be one of the area in France with the lowest rainfall climatology. Often associated with Syrah and Grenache, Mourvèdre brings a strong tannic structure and beautiful aromas of black fruits. A classic blend that perfectly works.

     Anecdote

    A winemaker, a family

    Located in the heart of Roussillon, Maison Cazes was created in 1895 by Michel Cazes. In 1927, his son convinced him to buy the Mas Joffre, former property of the famous Maréchal Joffre, hero of the First World War. Cazes therefore pays, with this cuvée, a tribute to its former prestigious owner./p>

     Terroir

    Terroir

     Cazes is known to be the biggest biodynamic vineyard in the world. The team was able to achieve such a goal thanks to the exceptional conditions : the Agly Valley is very windy hence keeping the grapes clean of all bacteria that could generate diseases.

    Cuvée G 2011, Château Le Bouis, Corbières

    The opinion of the sommelier

    I have already drunk nice Corbières but this one is quite exceptional !

A powerful and complex wine, perfect for summer : garrigue and sweetness of the Mediterranean put in a bottle !

    Le Secret de Sainte Frivole 2015, Domaine Mauro-Guicheney, Côtes de Duras

    Sommelier

    The opinion of the sommelier

    This wine was a very pleasant surprise ! The appellation Côtes de Duras is pretty well known for its red wines, but this one, Le Secret de Sainte Frivole, shows that it also produces excellent white wines. The nose is characterized by a feeling of a very fresh and delicate wine with citrus aromas. Take a sip and try to detect this little iodized taste that echoes the oceanic climate of Southwestern wines. To match obviously with seafood ! 

    Feuille

    Grape variety

    Contrary to what the name leads us to believe, the sauvignon gris (grey) is rather pale yellow. Characterized by clusters and berries of small size, it gives powerful and full-bodied wines with aromas slightly heavier than sauvignon blanc. The blend thus takes its full meaning. The sauvignon blanc brings a slight acidity and vivacity in the mouth, which balances the wine.

Both passionate about vine-growing, they unite and take over the family farm in 1990 where they strive to keep the values of their ancestors.

Producing red wines is deeply embedded in the South-West’s culture and tradition, because their food pairs better with red and they want to compete with Bordeaux.

    Les Griottes 2015, Maison Denuzière, Côtes du Rhône

    Sommelier

    The opinion of the sommelier

    In French, “griottes” means Morello cherry. A particularly relevant name as the wine displays very seducing cherry flavours. You can also find aromas of coffee and cocoa that will pair perfectly with a chocolate tart. The whole is carried by a remarkably thin tannic structure. This kind of wine, with powerful aromas and a thin structure, underlines the winemaker’s great skills. Moreover, this kind of red wine is particularily fit for dessert, which is not that common ! 

    Feuille

    Grape variety

    Grenache with syrah is the emblematic blend of the southern Rhône. The reason why it is emblematic is simply because these two grape varieties are good together ! Grenache, which brings very ripe fruit, alcohol and unctuousness in the mouth, might seems a little heavy. But Syrah, a dashing variety full of freshness and spices, tones the Grenache and the whole gives a balanced blend.

     Anecdote

    A winemaker, a family

    Located in Condrieu since 1876, Maison Denuzière is characterized by being the first trading house in the Northern Rhone Valley. If they are more known for the prestigious crus they make in Condrieu or Côte-Rôtie, maison Denuzière also produces more accessible wines that are made with the same care and are thought to offer some ageing potential./p>

     Terroir

    Terroir

     The northern Rhone Valley’s vineyards are characterized by very narrow steep slopes. The inclination of the slopes allows good drainage of the water thus limiting the water supply to the vine. Vines therefore face a strong water stress that favours grapes’concentration. The wines are then more concentrated, and provide a beautiful tannic mouth feeling. Keep in mind that no good things come without any suffering !

    The opinion of the sommelier

    What a straight and gourmet wine ! If the wines from Blayais are well known for their abundant yet softened tannins, this Vieux Puit seduced us also by the complexity of its aromas.

    4 grape varieties in this cuvée ‘’Les Racines’’, which is rather rare in Bordeaux!

    Eperon d'Argent 2016, J. Lebègue, AOC Graves

    Sommelier

    The opinion of the sommelier

    This wine reminds of a fruit basket filled with fresh and crunchy fruits ! The nose displays various elegant flavours of pear, banana, apple and blackberry. On the palate, we may agree that the smooth start gives charm. This delicious “Graves” manages to combine the subtly flavoured treats of fruits and a gentle texture. The perfect dry white Bordeaux ! 

    Feuille

    Grape variety

    The perfect match ! In the mouth, sauvignon brings expressive aromas marked by notes of white fruits and flowers. Semillon is not that aromatic, but it brings the structure and a buttery touch as well as a hint of sugar.

     Anecdote

    A winemaker, a family

    J.Lebègue is an historic winery founded in 1828 by Jules Lebègue at Cantenac, a small village located on the left side of the Gironde, next to Margaux. The company manages to combine the “basics” with innovations. Indeed, the firm has recently distinguished itself by launching the first Bordeaux fully fermented in oak barrels as they do in Burgundy./p>

     Terroir

    Terroir

     As its name tells, the soil of the “Graves” is made of gravels, pebbles (called graves in French) and stones. These “graves” reflect solar radiations and gradually redistribute the heat on the bunches contributing to a better grape ripeness. For white wines, it explains why Graves have such a smooth texture.

    Cuvée Baladeau 2014, Château La Croizille, Saint Emilion Grand Cru

    Sommelier

    The opinion of the sommelier

    What a beautiful Saint Emilion Grand Cru ! This wine is a real deal as it almost reaches the level of famous great wines. This wine is a great expression of top merlot that can only be made in Bordeaux. Moreover, a well-managed oak barrel ageing brings power without giving too much woody aromas. Exactly like in best Bordeaux’s Grand Crus ! 

    Feuille

    Grape variety

    If merlot dominates the appellation Saint Emilion Grand Cru, cabernet franc and the cabernet sauvignon are also grown there and brings more soul to the wines. Cabernet franc brings richness and aromatic complexity and on the fine vintages, it will even extend the aging of the wine giving five more years to go to Château La Croizille.

     Anecdote

    A winemaker, a family

    Château La Croizille is a long-standing vineyard, mentioned in the first editions of the 1868 version of the famous guide «Bordeaux and its wines». It had gone from hand to hand before the family De Schepper-De Mour bought it in 1996 with the purpose to make it to the big league. Goal fully achieved for this beautiful Saint-Emilion Grand Cru which deserves to be tasted with special attention./p>

     Terroir

    Terroir

     The soil of the Saint Emilion vineyard, classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is made of limestone covered with clay. This kind of soil has the particularity of retaining water and returning it to the vineyard in times of drought. Thus, subjected to a slight hydric stress, the vine plunges its roots deep into the soil allowing a total blossoming.

    Tradition 2012, Domaine Labranche Laffont, Madiran

    Sommelier

    The opinion of the sommelier

    This fabulous 2012’s vintage of Domaine Labranche Laffont shows that the reputation of rustic wines that once characterized Madiran is now far away. In the mouth, the wine is highly concentrated with well-marked tannins gentled during the four years since the bottling. Those carry a very subtle aroma of fig and smoked and peppered notes. I find its length on the palate remarkable. 

    Feuille

    Grape variety

    Tannat is the king grape variety of Madiran ! Indeed, this grape particularly enjoys the gravelly and sandy soils of the south-west, and represents 40 to 60 % of the grape varieties of the appellation. Sometimes unknown to the public, it gives colourful, fruity and tannic wines. Small bonus ; its richness in tannins gives anti-oxidant properties !

    A winemaker, a family

    It was in the 90's that Christine Dupuy took over the 6 hectares of the family vineyard. She became the youngest winegrower in the appellation. Christine Dupuy is praised by the wine press for her ability to modernize the wines of Madiran. She indeed was the one to prove that Madiran’s wines can be very seductive and that fruit can take over the tannin structure./p>

    Cuvée Panama, Domaine de Belvize, Languedoc

    Sommelier

    The opinion of the sommelier

    A very great wine from Languedoc ! This wine of unusual depth first seduces by its purple robe and its prune aromas at the nose. In the mouth, it’s a delightful explosion. Its intense touch evokes a coulis of red fruit that matches perfectly with hints of spices. Its pronounced freshness makes you want to take a second, then a third sip. Very mouthwatering. Note also its long-lasting taste and its beautiful velvety finish ! 

    Feuille

    Grape variety

    Te Syrah - Grenache blend is one of the most emblematic of the Southern Rhône and the Languedoc. The Syrah produces clusters of a beautiful black bluish color and gives a sweet and spicy juice (explaining why the pepper aroma is so obvious in this wine). Grenache, on the other hand, brings this full-bodied and creamy fnish.

    Robert Pagès, Banyuls, Domaine Madeloc

    Sommelier

    The opinion of the sommelier

    The cold winter made me feel like choosing a very warm wine. It is actually hard to find warmer wines than fortified wines from the Roussillon region in the Deep South of France. What is a fortified wine? It is a wine in which the winemakers add some distilled spirit. What for? The goal is to kill the yeasts that would otherwise turn the sugar into alcohol. This action has two consequences: the spirit increases the alcohol percentage per volume and there is a lot more sugar remaining in the wine. 

    Feuille

    Grape variety

    Grenache is the most planted grape variety in the world. It is planted on more than 200.000 hectares all over the world. Grenache noir brings to the wine alcohol and a strong aromatic intensity with candied fruits aromas. Grenache gris brings mineral flavours that balance the wine.

    A winemaker, a family

    Pierre Gaillard started ploughing the vineyards with a horse when he was 13 years old. He then founded the Madeloc estate and now manages several wine estates. Nowadays, his daughter Elise is in charge of Madeloc. Elise has been travelling all over the world, and combines family traditions with a great sense of innovation. At My VitiBox, we really enjoy Elise’s energy!

     Terroir

    Terroir

     Madeloc estate is no ordinary estate. Indeed, it is the highest estate of Banyuls-sur-mer (with a magnificent view on the Mediterranean Sea), with vines up to 450 meters of altitude. As a matter of fact, altitude preserves the vine from many diseases and it brings freshness to the wine. And freshness is more than welcome in this really warm and sunny area.

    The opinion of the sommelier

    This wine is perfect for a charcuterie board shared with friends on a summer night. This nice wine from Gaillac, made according to the principles of sustainable agriculture, displays complex aromas of cinnamon, gingerbread and red berries. On the palate, its creamy texture and its soft tannins show that it is a refined yet powerful wine.  

    Feuille

    Grape variety

    This wine is the opportunity to present you a pretty unknown variety: braucol ! Also called fer servadou, it basically is from the south-west of France where it is found in many of the most famous appellations of this region: Madiran, Gaillac, Béarn… Braucol is very appreciated by connoisseurs as it gives very elegant wines. Indeed, despite the presence of marked tannins (which by the way give a great aging potential!), the wine remains very fresh on the palate.

     Anecdote

    A winemaker, a family

    Domaine de la Chanade puts forward the use of natural products during the agricultural process: no chemical pesticides here! The grapes are the result of a close collaboration between the team and Mother Nature. At My VitiBox, we particularly like (and encourage) this philosophy!

     Terroir

    Terroir

     The Domaine de la Chanade is located on the plateau Cordais, north of the Gaillac appellation. The vines are planted on southern exposed hillsides. Thus, the grapes spend more time in the sunlight which ensures a high level of concentration in sugars. This is why the wines of Domaine de la Chanade are so rich!

    Les Terrasses 2015, Maison Denuzière, Crozes Hermitag

    Sommelier

    The opinion of the sommelier

    A beautiful wine that pays tribute to Syrah, a grape variety I particularly like. It reminds me of my years spent at La Tour d’Argent where I had fun to pair this grape variety with different duck recipes. This wine, with the aromas of jammed fruit and the typical peppery nuances of the syrah, will sublimate a roasted duckling. A match that you’ll not forget ! 

    Feuille

    Grape variety

    Syrah is the only black variety allowed to make red wines in Crozes-Hermitage. This expressive grape with peppery notes is a fragile variety that is particularly prone to dryness. The temperate climate of Crozes-Hermitage therefore suits perfectly our beautiful queen Syrah.

    Malbec 2006, Vignobles Violine du Roy, Touraine

    Sommelier

    The opinion of the sommelier

    Drinking ten years old wines is not that common and even less with wines from the Loire Valley ! That’s why I am happy to present you this 2006 malbec that literally impressed me. This wine displays at the same time a nice freshness and abundant but thin tannins. These two facts allowed it to age through all these years. Nowadays, this wine exhales nice aromas or red pepper, humus and mushrooms. The silky texture is also an enchantment. All my congratulations to the winemakers ! 

    Feuille

    Grape variety

    Malbec is originally from Cahors, a famous wine producing town in the South West of France. During Renaissance, it was imported in the Loire Valley where it’s better known under the name of “côt”. It’s a slowgrowing variety that demands to be harvested at full maturity. It is also very sensitive to frost. Cultivating it in Touraine, a northern region, is therefore a pretty rough challenge !

     Anecdote

    A winemaker, a family

    Violine du Roy is not a traditional wine estate. It is basically the association of several talented winemakers who decided to put part of their grapes and skills together to try to make new unconventional small batches. With this Malbec, they wanted to show that by selecting the right grapes and vinifying it the right way, you can obtain wines that can age up to 20 years !/p>

     Terroir

    Terroir

     The vines that were used to elaborate this Malbec grow on a specific soil called “perruches”. This kind of soil, relatively rare elsewhere in the world, is in fact quite common in the Loire Valley. It’s a blend of flint, clay and silica. Flint keeps the warmth and bring minerality, whereas clay and silica stress the vines so those give the best out of themselves, forcing the grapes to concentrate.

    Domain of Crampilh : a hymn to love. In the 1800s, Sabin Oulie, the mayor of a small village, chose to plant a vineyard and gave his estate the name of his beloved Melanie Crampilh. Since, time went by, and nowadays, the 4th generation is in charge. Bruno Oulié strives to perpetuate the tradition by producing wines with a lot of power and character but balanced by finesse and fruit./p>

     Terroir

    Terroir

     The vineyard covers 30 hectares of vines, planted on the slopes of Aurions-Idernes on soils made of clay and silica. Te siliceous soils, made up of crystalline rocks, enable the finesse and give the wines subtle floral notes (here aromas of acacia). Clay soils offer harder, firmer and more alcoholic wines, giving the character of the fnish on this wine.
