‘Red’ offer, Cotes de Roussillon Villages, Calmel & Joseph, 2016,

6 Bottles for the price of 5!

Viader Vintners has worked with Domaine Calmel & Joseph for many years now and we are delighted to bring you this special offer for their Côtes de Roussillon Villages 2016.

Set in the heart of 200 uninterrupted hectares the Domaine sits in a remarkable geographical position. At altitudes near to 300 metres, the cultivated plots are surrounded by richly diverse woodland and wild Mediterranean scrub.

Their ethics are to be admired;

  • An innovative Domaine : The site is perfectly adapted to the adoption of respectful agriculture and innovative techniques. Because of its isolation, the Domaine is in a unique position to try innovative methods of cultivation.
  • Organic farming methods : Putting life at the heart of the Domaine is our priority, they switched to organic farming for the entire estate. They use no chemicals, whether it be pesticides, herbicides or fungicides, but only natural products in extremely low doses such as Sulphur or tiny amounts of copper, and principally plant extracts and essences. Their work consists of re-establishing life in the soil to encourage mycorrhizae, worms, bacterial activity, fungi and insects.
  • They believe firmly in plant biodiversity.

Côtes de Roussillon Villages 2016 tasting notes:

Deep purple & red in colour, almost black. The nose is pronounced with hints of ripe red fruits, almost jammy. Cherry, fig and dried plum dominate. The attack is concentrated but soft. Natural sugar envelops soft tannins. Aromas of candied fruits cover the back of the palate. Nice balance and good length.

Esporao Private Selection Branco, 2016
Esporao Private Selection Branco, 2016
Esporao Private Selection Branco, 2016

– Private Selection White was created in 2001 with a desire to challenge the classic profile of great Alentejo white wines. To achieve this, we decided to base the wine on the underated Semillon variety and the use of new French oak barrels for fermentation and maturation. With growing the vineyard maturity and a careful selection of barrel suppliers the solid, rich and complex style of this wine has been reinforced over the years

– The Semillon grapes used in this wine were planted on the Herdade dos Perdigões estate, which belongs to Esporão, in 1996, using northwest/southwest exposure in order to maximize fruit protection from extreme sunlight.

Colour

Crystal clear straw.

Aroma

Ripe fruits with tropical notes and well integrated discrete toasty french oak, complex.

Palate

Rich and unctuous, with elegance and balance, long and persistent.

La Ruffe “les Cuvées Rares”, Calmel & Joseph, 2015/16

Purple-red robe. A very expressive nose that opens with notes of chocolate and spice, followed by citrus fruit and white flower aromas. There are also hints of pure fruit, reminiscent of freshly-picked, crushed grapes. On the palate this is a clean and lively wine with subtle notes of small red berries and scrubland herbs. The tannins are elegant, discreet and well-integrated. The balance and originality of this wine gives it its “cuvée rare” status.

Terroir

Clay limestone and blood-red “ruffes” soil typically found in the Terrasses du Larzac.

Saint-Veran “Les Deux Moulins”, L. Latour, 2016
Saint-Veran “Les Deux Moulins”, L. Latour, 2016

– Situated in the very South of the Mâconnais, the Saint-Véran vineyards form a gilded belt around Pouilly-Fuissé. The two are similar in terms of relief and production techniques, even in their actual taste and fragrance. The area’s Jurassic chalk soil and the vineyard’s ideal exposure combine perfectly to produce top quality fruit. Saint-Véran « Les Deux Moulins » takes its name from the two watermills that straddle La Petite Grosne river. The rain that falls on the vineyards, filters through the calcareous bedrock to help feed the river as it flows away west towards the famous monastic town of Cluny. Once harvested, the grapes are fermented in stainless steel in order to preserve the freshness of the fruit. A slow, cool fermentation allows the wine to maintain its rich and concentrated flavours.
– This Saint-Véran “Les Deux Moulins” 2016 is of an elegant pale yellow color and offers a delicate nose of fresh almond, laced with subtle notes of honeysuckle. On tasting, the wine is gourmet with aromas of almond and hazelnut. Beautiful freshness on the finish.

Sula – Shiraz, Nashik, 2016

Sula – Shiraz, Nashik, 2016

Sula Vineyards is at the forefront of the Indian wine revolution. The wines are served in the best restaurants worldwide. A smooth, medium-bodied red wine accentuated by ripe cherry and plum fruit, with attractive aromas of black pepper.

91 Points Wine Enthusiast (2012 vintage)
“Aromas of blackberry, cherry preserves, white chocolate and a hint of green pepper prepare the taste buds for flavors of forest-fruit, smoked pork, black pepper, violet and almond blossom. A trio of fruit, savory tones and spice travels across the palate on a layer of smooth tannins, leading to a smoky finish.” M.D.  (12/31/2014)

Sula Vineyards. Situated 180 km northeast of Mumbai, Nashik is India’s largest grape-growing region, but had traditionally never been used to grow wine grapes. Wondering why, an enterprising, Stanford-trained engineer named Rajeev Samant quit his hi-tech Silicon Valley job in 1993 to do some investigating.

 

A little research quickly showed that the Nashik climate was not only perfect for wine grapes, but was also on par with winegrowing regions in Spain, California, and Australia. His determination doubled and Rajeev returned to California in search of a winemaker. In Sonoma County he found Kerry Damskey, an eminent Californian winemaker, who enthusiastically agreed to help start a winery on Rajeev’s 30 acre family estate.
In 1997, the duo took the revolutionary step of planting French Sauvignon Blanc and Californian Chenin Blanc, varieties that had never before been planted in India. The first Sula wines, released in 2000, were widely acclaimed as India’s best white wines.
Since its inception, Sula has rapidly established itself as India’s Leading Premium Wine Producer, helping spark a wine revolution that has seen consumption grow at 25% annually and several new wineries come up in the Nashik area. In November 2002, Wine Spectator – the world’s No.1 wine magazine – did a five-page feature on Sula, a proud first for an Indian winery.
A second winery with three times the capacity of the first was completed in late 2004 to keep up with demand, and a third million litre winery started operations in 2006. Sula has expanded from the original 30 acre family estate to about 1,800 acres (owned and contracted) under plantation, both in Nashik as well as in nearby Dindori, India’s upcoming wine region. Varietals planted include Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Zinfandel and Merlot along with Chenin Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier and Riesling. In addition to having a wide distribution network within India, Sula also exports its wines internationally, as well as importing and distributing wines from leading producers worldwide. In 2005, Sula proudly launched its first reserve wine, the Dindori Reserve Shiraz, as well as India’s first dessert wine, the Late Harvest Chenin Blanc.
The winery and vineyards are open to the public for educational tours, and the beautiful Tasting Room invites visitors to enjoy their favourite Sula wines amidst spectacular views of the vineyards and surrounding lakes and hills. The nearby Sula amphitheatre is an impressive location for events and social gatherings and is available for bookings. Visitors can now spend a few nights in paradise at BEYOND, Sula’s new exclusive accommodation on the vineyards with a beautiful lake view.
Firmly committed to remaining at the forefront of Indian wines, Sula continues to experiment with new varietals, engage in sustainable agriculture, support the local rural economy, and, of course, make wines of outstanding quality and superb value.
