Our Wine of the Week is a Sensational 2016 Cotes du Roussillon Villages! "Exceptional, unmissable, unbelievable quality," are just a few of the superlatives critics are using to describe the 2016 in all of the Roussillon, Rhone, Languedoc  and quite frankly most French wine appellations. I am receiving daily requests to find out when the next great wine is coming in from this vintage. Thank you for asking and it is our pleasure to offer you this delicious gem. It is true that these 2016's are very special as almost everything we taste from this vintage is a winner. A vintage to secure as many gems as possible!

 
From Wine Advocate: Sporting a deep purple—almost blue—color, the sensational 2016 Cotes du Roussillon Villages Lesquerde l'Esquerda has a northern Rhône-like minerality as well as notes of classic black and blue fruits, crushed flowers, ozone and licorice. Made from 60% Syrah and 40% Grenache, all from granitic soils, it’s a rich, structured, full-bodied and age-worthy red that will drink nicely through 2026. The quality of this release continues to soar and there are not many values like this out there today.
 
See you soon!
