  1. Les Trois Côtes 2016, Côtes de Bourg

    Les Trois Côtes 2016, Côtes de Bourg

    Sommelier

    The opinion of the sommelier

    I have the pleasure to share with you a Côtes de Bourg wine as I love them ! On the right bank of Bordeaux, this appellation gives birth to beautiful structured red wines. The nose is deliciously influenced by Merlot : red and black fruits, enhanced by subtle flavours of pepper and even cocoa ! In the mouth, the richness of its structure matches perfectly with the delicacy of its freshness. 

    Feuille

    Grape variety

    Merlot is the most widespread grape variety in Bordeaux and is also the favourite grapes of blackbirds named “merle”. This bird, as dark as the bay, has even given its name to the grape because merlot means 'merle’ in the local dialect. Merlot produces round, smooth wines with delicious aromas of red and black fruits.

     Anecdote

    A winemaker, a family

    As a child, it was not uncommon to see Philippe Modat running in the middle of the family vineyard. He took part in his first harvest at age 20 while still studying law in Bordeaux. Then he went to meet the best winemakers in France and abroad to learn the trade before returning to the vineyard estate to share his passion./p>

  2. Berry Good 2015, Domaine Nairaud Suberville, Châteaumeillant

    Berry Good 2015, Domaine Nairaud Suberville, Châteaumeillant

    Sommelier

    The opinion of the sommelier

    This month, I have the pleasure to share with you one of my recently found jewel, which comes from one of the smallest appellation that gathers only 10 winemakers : Châteaumeillant. The wines from this terroir are appreciated for their gourmet nose of cherry, plum and pepper. On the palate, the aromas are fresh and reveals a very beautiful structure with crisp that I enjoy deeply. 

    Feuille

    Grape variety

    Berry Good is mainly composed of gamay. Originally from Burgundy, it is the first grape variety of the Chateaumeillant appel-lation. It brings freshness and finesse to the cuvée with aromas of red fruits and spices (pepper). Blended with pinot noir, the wine shows a greater finesse and have a nice balance.

     Anecdote

    A winemaker, a family

    The story of the Nairaud Suberville vineyard began in 2011, one year after Châteaumeillant officially became an appellation. This was an amazing year for Daniel Nairaud. Former deputy director of the National Institute of Appellations of Origin (INAO), he left at 49 years his job to start an adventure and become a winemaker. His years at INAO gave him all the theoretical foundations of wine production, and today he makes his own wine for our greatest pleasure ! /p>

     Terroir

    Terroir

     The vines of Nairaud Suberville are grown on a sandy-clay soil. This terroir is typical of the appellation and it is also ideal for the gamay variety. Granitic and not very deep, the soil brings a good drainage to the vine and produces a wine with structure and body.

  3. Clémence 2016, Domaine Philippe et Vincent Jaboulet, Crozes-Hermitage

    Clémence 2016, Domaine Philippe et Vincent Jaboulet, Crozes-Hermitage

    Sommelier

    The opinion of the sommelier

    As it is a world class winery, Jaboulet is one of the most famous names in the Rhône Valley. However, Philippe and Vincent made the choice to get out of the Family winery so as to grow smaller parcels and make exactly the wine they love. And they did well as Clémence is one of my favourite wine and each vintage is in my personal cellar.  

    Feuille

    Grape variety

    Only black variety in the northern Rhône Valley, syrah gives there its finest expression with a lot of power, spicy aromas and firm yet elegant tannins. This tannic structure allows to keep the wine a few years for ageing: it will be a little less powerful but a little more complex as it will have developed aromas of leather or mushrooms.

     Anecdote

    A winemaker, a family

    Founded in 1834, Jaboulet is one of the most famous wineries in the area (and in France as it is quite big). After 30 years being in charge of the hundreds of hectares of vineyard of the family, Philippe wanted to think smaller to make better. That’s why he founded with his son Vincent his own Domaine. /p>

     Terroir

    Terroir

     Crozes-Hermitage faces Saint-Joseph just on the other side of the river. Both have syrah in common, but they produces quite different expressions of this variety. Jaboulet’s vines are located in the south of the appellation on a light soil that lets the roots growing very deep into the ground. Therefore, vine stocks capture a lot of different nutrient that end in the berries which gives its high level of complexity to the wine.

  4. Château Belle Grange 2015, Saint-Emillion Grand Cru

    Château Belle Grange 2015, Saint-Emillion Grand Cru

    Sommelier

    The opinion of the sommelier

    This 2015 vintage of Château Belle Grange really impressed me. It’s very elegant, has a lot of structure and is very full bodied without being heavy, and it has a very long finish. But what distinguishes it from other Saint-Emilion is its unique flavours of flowers that will charm you. 

    Feuille

    Grape variety

    In Saint-Emilion, Bordeaux is predominant almost all the time. Merlot enjoys soils of clay which keep its grape fresh (otherwise, this variety tends to make too much alcohol). On the other side, cabernet sauvignon enjoys pebbles as it keeps warmth which is useful for this variety which finds it harder to ripen.

     Anecdote

    A winemaker, a family

    Verhaeghe Family has a 200 years old history of making wine in Bordeaux. They own estates in Saint-Emilion and in Bordeaux Supérieur appellations. Around half of the vineyard is already certified organic : the other half will soon be and the future vintages starting from 2017 will be certified organic. /p>

     Terroir

    Terroir

     Château Belle Grange’s terroir is interesting as it covers the two sides of a hill. One side is made of clay, which is the case in most of the appellation; the other side is made of pebbles, which is more common in Médoc on the other side of Bordeaux. Both combined allow to make great merlot as well as great cabernet-sauvignon which give this great wine once blended.

  5. Les Rocailles 2015, Domaine Pierre Finon, Saint-Joseph

    Les Rocailles 2015, Domaine Pierre Finon, Saint-Joseph

    Sommelier

    The opinion of the sommelier

    Les Rocailles, by the very talented winemaker Pierre Finon, does honour the great appellation of Saint-Joseph. A powerful wine that expresses delicious aromas of blueberry and black pepper, and refreshed by notes of violet specific to syrah. On the palate, a beautiful finish with tannins that shows us a strong wine with a great ageing potential. 

    Feuille

    Grape variety

    Syrah is the emblematic black grape of the northern part of the Rhone Valley and the only black grape of the Saint-Joseph appellation. It has a spicy character and delicious aromas of violet that it expresses in the wines it gives, as fine as complex. A balance bet-ween power and finesse specific to the Northern Rhone Valley.

     Anecdote

    A winemaker, a family

    At the age of 20, Pierre Finon chose, for the sake of the vineyard, to transform his farm into a wine estate. Year after year, vine stock after vine stock, the estate grew to what it is today. Moreover Françoise and Pierre Finon back a development of the vine that preserves the environment. Thus, the domain is led in sustainable agriculture on the 20 hectares, to encourage the expression and the potential of its terroir./p>

     Terroir

    Terroir

     Located on the slopes of the right bank of the Rhone Valley, the vineyard of the Domaine Pierre Finon enjoys a granite soil covered with a layer of gneiss and shale.

  6. Le Secret de Sainte Frivole 2015, Côtes de Duras

    Le Secret de Sainte Frivole 2015, 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.

Corinne and Didier cultivate with passion and knowhow the 30 hectares of vineyards of the family property, owned for half a century. 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.

     Terroir

    Terroir

     The Côtes de Duras vineyard covers over 1500 hectares and produces 65% red and 35% white. Its subsoils, composed of molasses and heavy and sticky clays called Boulbènes, are very favorable to the blossoming of white grape varieties. 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.

    The opinion of the sommelier

    Unbelievable Saint-Joseph! The winemaker offers an exceptional tasting with this powerful and elegant cuvee as the appellation knows how to create it. However, Dame de Coeur is also really smooth is the mouth. Expressive and subtle at the same time, this wine is perfect for long winter dinners. 

    Feuille

    Grape variety

    Dame de Cœur is made of Syrah, the only black grape of Saint-Joseph appellation. This cuvee is made of a selection of grapes coming from the oldest vines of the domain. The roots of these vines go deeper in the soil and so the wines produce are more intense and more expressive than young vines. Using old vines guarantee to produce wine that are more representative of a terroir.

    Sommelier

    The opinion of the sommelier

    This month, I am happy to make you taste a wine from Bandol, one of my favourite appellation. Jean Luc Dumoutier elaborates a unique cuvee with an extraordinary aromatic palette. A powerful wine that shows aromas of Morello cherry, prune, tobacco and leather. The finish is spicy with a hint of thyme. In the mouth, all the flavours are structured by firm tannins. 

    Feuille

    Grape variety

    This cuvee is mainly elaborated with Mourvedre. This variety has small grape with a dense skin which gives to the wine a great tannic structure with a long ageing potential.

     Anecdote

    A winemaker, a family

    Domaine de l’Olivette has been owned by the same family for more than 200 years. At the beginning it was just a farm where polyculture was made : wheat, vines, vegetables and obviously olive trees, which gave their name to the estate. In 1930, the family decided to focus on winemaking, and especially from 1941 when the Bandol Appellation was created. They therefore were among the first estates to produce Bandol wines. Nowadays Jean-Luc and Elisabeth Dumoutier are the fourth generation of winemakers./p>

     Terroir

    Terroir

     Facing south, the vineyards receive around 3000 hours of sunlight a year. The Mediterranean Sea protects the vineyard from too big gaps of temperature. Whereas in the height, hills are blocking the cold wind coming from the North. The soil is composed of clay and limestone with marl. Despite of a poor ground with limited yield, this soil is really favourable to the growing of vine and produces grapes with concentrated aromas.

  9. Domaine de la Garenne 2016, Bandol

    Domaine de la Garenne 2016, Bandol

    Sommelier

    The opinion of the sommelier

    Bandol is a unique appellation. It is the only one in Provence that is entirely very close to the sea, and it is the only one to use Mourvedre, a very interesting variety, as its main grape. It gives deep, powerful, spicy wines that get better with time. Domaine de la Garenne shows what a typical, seriously elaborated Bandol is supposed to be. 

    Feuille

    Grape variety

    Mourvedre is the emblematic variety of Bandol. It gives very small berries with a very think skin which explains why there is such an impressive tannic structure, as tannins in red wines come from grapes’ skin. It is blended with Grenache to give a creamier structure, to Carignan for sweet aromas and to Cinsault to give more body and peppery flavours.

     Terroir

    Terroir

     Only on southern slopes, vines in Bandol are permanently exposed to sunlight. At the bottom of the hills, the Mediterranean Sea is a great temperature moderator. The soil is very poor in nutrients and water, which stimulates the vine stocks to grow deep roots and therefore not to focus too much on grapes. Thanks to that, winegrowers can harvest small but powerful grape berries that give great wines.

    Château de Chambert 2012, Rigal, Cahors

    Sommelier

    The opinion of the sommelier

    Château de Chambert is one of those famous estates that has a strong positive impact on the reputation of their appellation. One of the reasons why it’s famous is because the soil never got a drop of chemical. It has been given up for a few decades and then immediately grown in biodynamics. The 2012 vintage has improved with age : the wine is powerful and velvety in the mouth with a very beautiful dense and fleshy structure. 

    Feuille

    Sommelier

    The opinion of the sommelier

    Richard Maby is a talented winemaker renowned for his white and red wines from Lirac and his rosés of Tavel. I really like his author's wines and Nessun Dorma is a real jewel! Its deep garnet robe reveals a powerful nose from which emanate delicious ripe cherries, enhanced by a woody and an animal leathery touch ... An intense experience ! 

    Feuille

    Grape variety

    Malbec, the most famous grape variety of the region, blooms on the gravelly and sandy soils of the Southwest. It as well likes large temperature gaps between day and night, a phenomenon that it also found in the Andes in Argentina where it became the main black grape variety. Blended with other grape varieties, it brings to the wine its structure, its complexity, and a ripe fruitiness.

    Richard is the fourth generation of Maby in Lirac and Tavel. After studying political sciences, he was finally reached the family’s passion and took over the Maby vineyard. Richard changes traditional methods : he created a parcel mapping of the vineyard to better express the peculiarities of the soil and converted the vineyard to sustainable agriculture. Maybe thanks to his passion for music, he cultivates and vinifies wines like a conductor, with passion and emotion./p>

    Les Secrets de la Licorne 2017, Domaine de Brunely, Vacqueyras

    Sommelier

    The opinion of the sommelier

    Located on the astonishing Dentelles de Montmirail, Vacqueyras is not the most famous appellation in the Southern Rhone valley but it is known in the region as the appellation that defines the style of what should à Southern Rhone wine taste like. Secrets de la Licorne complies with that rule with its strong tannins, its full body and its long finish.  

    Feuille

    Grape variety

    Grenache gives deep fruity wines with a dark colour. It’s often blended with Syrah to give freshness and flowery flavours and sometimes with Mourvedre as in this cuvee where it brings tannins and peppery aromas.

    Brunely’s story started in Sarrians, one of the village part of the Vacqueyras appellation. The winery built it expertise on this appellation before expanding on almost all the appellations in Southern Rhone valley. The unicorn (Licorne in French) you’ll see on the label was a sculpture given by the pope Martin the 5th to Mr Pellegirin de Brunnelis who fought to defend the Pope’s land in Central Italy./p>

    Robert Pagès, Banyuls

    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.

At My VitiBox, we really enjoy Elise’s energy!

     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.

  16. Mondeuse 2017, Adrien Vacher, Vin de savoie

    Mondeuse 2017, Adrien Vacher, Vin de savoie

    Sommelier

    The opinion of the sommelier

    Mondeuse is one of my favourite grape varieties and it is from Savoie. It’s with Mondeuse that the greatest red wines of the region are elaborated. I like this juicy sensation that it creates, well balanced by firm tannins. Moreover, it has a lot of acidity, which underlines the crispy side of the red berries aromas. Eventually, good Mondeuses display some enjoyable peppery aromas as it is the case here.  

    Feuille

    Grape variety

    Mondeuse is, as most grape variety grown in Savoie, relatively rare outside of the Alps. Its perfect balance between tannin and acidity make it quite easy to drink it relatively young but also allow to keep it up to 5 years in the cellar where ageing will give it more ripe flavours. Some expert say that Mondeuse is halfway between Burgundy’s Pinot Noir and Northern Rhône’s Syrah.

     Anecdote

    A winemaker, a family

    Mondeuse is known to pair well with charcurterie and cheeses, so it’s sold mainly in the Alps. Moreover, the fact that it can age is a good thing in areas where it’s hard to make the same amount of wine every year. However, it is also now grown in Australia and in the United-States on very different terroirs. Maybe those experiments are the beginning of the rise of Mondeuse! /p>

    Terroir

    Domaine de Brunely 2018, Ventoux

    Sommelier

    The opinion of the sommelier

    It’s hard to imagine by seeing the high and windy Mont Ventoux (Windy Mountain in Provencal) that there are vineyards on its slopes. However, it is the case and the vines there give particularly interesting wines there. Brunely is typical of this appellation with deep peppery and cherry flavours that give an intense and complex wine. 

    Feuille

    Grape variety

    We find an equal proportion of Syrah and Grenache. The first one is the typical grape variety from Northern Rhone Valley and brings freshness and tastes of spices and flowers. The second one is the great variety of Southern Rhone valley and gives the creamy texture and the ripe fruits aromas. Carignan brings some structure and complexity to the whole with flavours of black berries.

    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.

It is not far from there that Chateau Lafite, Mouton Rotshchild and Latour are located.

    Trio Tempo 2016, IGP Comté Tolosan

    Sommelier

    The opinion of the sommelier

    I am a huge lover of Gros Manseng. This grape variety, mainly grown in the South-West, creates fruity wines, gathering both sweet and exotic aromas, with freshness that balances the wine and makes the third glass as enjoyable as the first one... It allows sweet and sour pairings which are very interesting, and I really like opening a bottle with friends with a good goat cheese served with honey or jam. 

    Feuille

    Grape variety

    Gros Manseng is a typical Southwestern grape variety. It can be at the origin of sweet or dry wines. On a dry wine like Trio Tempo, it offers an impression of sweetness subtler than with a sweet wine, on a fresh frame and with hint of acidity which creates the balance. A fruity and fresh experience !

Thanks to the proximity of the Pyrenees Mountains, the wide temperature gap between day and at night is ideal to ripen the grapes while protecting their aromas.
