V.i.t 'Visitare' Côtes du Roussillon Ac M. Chapoutier Tain Chapoutier Michel 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Percentage Grape: 60% Monastrell, 30% Tempranillo and 10% Shiraz<br/><br/>Soil: Soils are very stony and dun-limy, and their structure makes vines survive in long periods of droughts. These soils are very suitable due to its high quantity of calcium carbonate<br/><br/>Date of Harvest: First and second week of October.<br/><br/>Vinification Method: Separate vinification of each variety is carried out by the traditional method. After light pressing, the juice macerates for fourteen days to a fermentation temperature of 26/ 28°C with subsequent pressing by pneumatic machine. Ageing: 4 month in French and American oak.<br/><br/>Age of Barrel: new<br/><br/>Type of Wood: french and american<br/><br/>Alcohol Percentage: 13.5 %<br/><br/>Aging Time: 4 months<br/><br/>Sugar Rate: 0-5 g/l

Vincent’s red wines are profound and intense, balancing the tannins and the ripe fruit. These wines demonstrate fullness of structure, with unmistakable grandeur, without any astringency. Success in winemaking requires a rigour and attention to detail at all times for each individual wine. Because each wine has its own specific characteristics, the right technical decisions by the winemaker are essential. Read less

For $7.99 per bottle, this is one of those finds one looks to fill-up their wine refrig with. Going into the Fall season this is just perfect for those comfort food dishes served this time of year. Enjoy!!! Cheers!

Bright black cherry hue, aromas of blueberries, violets and spices; flavor notes of red berries, cherry cola and underbrush with a hint of cedar, on the edge between rustic and refined.

Excellent rose. Aromas of raspberry and rose petals echoed on the palate with a bit of sweet strawberry. Dry finish. Interesting silky texture.

This Corbières has a deep ruby colour. On the nose, the first impression is of sweet stone fruit and plums with a big herbal quality and a touch of ground black pepper. The ripe fruit element continues on the palate but moves and changes to a more savoury style with the spice, herbs and pepper creeping in and then the tannins which although present are well integrated. You can sense the mediterranean heat. It's ready to drink now but will certainly keep for a few years yet. We drank it with a plain char-grilled steak and the match was fabulous. The wine has around 45% Grenache and Syrah with some old vine Carignan making up the blend. 10 - 12 months ageing in French barriques after a period of cuve ageing gives it complexity but by no means does the oak component dominate the palate.

Caluri Niuru ist ein dunkler, wuchtiger Rotwein mit intensiven Aromen, einem pfeffrigen Abschluss und einer dezenten Holznote

This producer of Albariño is second to none. Well-known throughout Spain and just getting to be known in the past few years here in NY. This "Verde" bottle is floral and holds a stony minerality to the finish. Dry and fresh. Calls for seafood.

Ripe and plush, with delicious boysenberry, plum and raspberry fruit flavors, layered with sweet spice and ganache notes. The long, juicy finish shows a nice floral hint. Very friendly. Drink now through 2009.

Fumin is a rather obscure red variety grown in the alpine region of Val d'Aosta, in the northernmost part of Italy. This red is lively, yet delicate, with focused red berry fruits and notes of rose petals.

Fruchtig, würzig mit leichter Holznote. Sehr schöner Wein mit langem Abgang.

This is a chocolatey incarnation of Spanish Grenache with brooding tannins that impart earthy stucture to the wine. Approachable and characterful.

Auge: intensives Rot; Nase: Gewürzaromen mit einer Basis von Koreander und Zimt. Endet mit einer Note von Süssholz, Pflaumenkompott; Gaumen: frischer Thymian dominiert, wird mit Aromen von frischen Nüssen ergänzt
