Tasting Note
Very expressive with white flowers and fruity aromas of apricot and vineyard peach, along with dried fruit and nut overtones.

Calmel & Joseph – Vieux Carignan, IGP Côtes du Brian, 2016

Tasting Note
Ruby red robe with highlights. 2014 was a good, sunny vintage. On the nose, this wine has aromas of fig and garrigue herbs typical of ancient Carignan vines grown on hillsides. The palate is delicate, with a fine balance between taste and tannins, suppleness and acidity. A wonderfully rich, elegant example of this Languedoc grape variety.

Calmel & Joseph, Corbières, 2016

Ruby-red robe and a pronounced nose of black fruit, fresh figs and prunes. Clean and crisp on the palate, with notes of garrigue scrubland, spices and quince. Fine tannins, ending with a hint of truffle. Well-balanced and elegant, with very good ageing potential.

16.5/20 Jancis Robinson.

“Syrah, Grenache and a bit of Cinsault. Pure delicious red fruit on the nose. Sweet rounded cherry and plum swathed in a sinewy, slightly rugged, leather strap of tannins. The taut refined acidity, that is such a hallmark of Calmel & Joseph, strims through the sweetness of the fruit like a blade, leaving freshness and just a hint of earthy spice in its wake. Just a little Cinsault, and yet it brings it distinctive soprano note into the deeper alto and bass tones of the Syrah and Grenache.”

Chardonnay Puglia IGT, Tormaresca, 2016
  • This Chardonnay is Tormaresca’s signature label from its namesake estate. Being a symbol of Apulia’s intrinsic nature, with its high-quality standards, is a source of pride for Tormaresca and its close connection to the territory is made evident through the etymology of the name itself. “Tormaresca” is a creative name that evokes the 580 historical fortified towers built to defend the Apulian coastline from pirates that for centuries threatened the local populations. These same invaders proved to be sources of important cultural contributions that left their mark in the area.
  • Bright, fruity, medium-bodied Chardonnay showing the purity and richness of Puglian fruit.

Domaine des Jeanne – Rosé, Luberon 2016

Domaine des Jeanne – Rosé, Luberon 2016

The Domaine

Domaine des Jeanne was formed when Welshman Lord Mervyn Davies of Abersoch was introduced to winemaker Alexandre Samour, whilst sourcing the perfect rosé for his daughter’s wedding in 2011.

The Vineyard in Oppède, in the Luberon region of Provence, is situated between the mountains and the sea, close to the legendary wine-producing commune of Châteauneuf-du-Pape.

The domaine’s first harvest was in 2012, releasing their first rosé in 2013, named ‘Jeanne’ after his Mervyn’s wife and Alex’s daughter. Jeanne appropriately means ‘divine gift’, and represents the importance of family to both founders.

The Wine

Lovingly produced from grenache, syrah and clairette grape varieties, its rose petal colour precedes a red and white fruit bouquet highlighted with citrus notes; a well-balanced crisp palate, full of freshness, with a subtle fruity finale.

 

This wine works well on its own or partnered with fish, spicy foods and lamb. Enjoy over the next couple of years.

89 Points Wine Enthusiast (2012 vintage)

Aromas of cheesy oak, jammy berry and cassis are ripe and a touch raisiny. A wide, full-bodied palate shows scratchy tannins, while core flavors of blackberry and cassis feature mild but present oak in front of a tannic finish. Drink through 2020. M.S.  (3/1/2015)

86 Points Wine Enthusiast.
“Apple and peach aromas are dusty and lightly tropical. With no oak, fruit is all you get in this Chardonnay; flavors of apple, nectarine and melon run clean, sweet and ripe, while the finish is mellow and lands smack in the middle of the fairway.” M.S. (8/1/2014)
