Wine Details & Tasting Notes

***WINE FUTURES ARRIVING EARLY FALL 2022***

4 Bottles each of the following Lots:

Lot 316 | 2020 Costieres de Nimes Vielles Vigne Rhone White: A blend of Old Vine (Vielles Vignes) Grenache Blanc, Clairette, Viognier and Rousanne, this fantastic Rhone-style white blend has scored 91-92-points from Jeb Dunnock for the 2018 through 2020 vintages. Given the high-quality of 2021 whites wines in the region, there is no reason to suspect the 2021 bottling would score any less.

The gorgeous bouquet is simultaneously crystalline and pungent with ripe honeysuckle adorning a generous core of quince and apricot with subtle notes of river rock. Rich on entry with excellent succosite, perfectly-ripe apricot is supported by chalky-minerality punctuated with a crisp finish of honeyed mandarin and allspice. Ripe but never cloying, the finish has huge length and persistence. Fantastic!

Lot 317 | 2020 : Costieres de Nimes Vielles Vignes Rosé Wine: This gorgeous Rose has scored 91-points from Jeb Dunnock every year since 2016. His review of the 2019 pretty much sums up the program: The 2019 Costières De Nimes Vieilles Vignes Rose is rocking stuff, and possibly the finest rosé I’ve tasted from the Costières de Nimes...I’d put it up against any Provençal rosé out there.

2020 Costieres de Nimes was an unusually great vintage for whites and roses.

Sourced from 80+-year-old, head-trained grenache and mourvedre vines, this beautifully structured Vielles Vignes Rose is crystalline and gorgeous as well as fantastically mouthwatering.

Blood orange and white peach are complexed with perfumed lavender, lemongrass and orange blossom. Generous and elegant on the palate this wine has a core of fleshy white peach encased in a steel beam of chalky, mineral-laced acidity sprinkled with grenadine, lilac and a fantastic white pepper retro-nasal blast. Mouthwateringly delicious with perfect fruit acid tension, this dynamic Rose will knock your socks off!

Lot 318 | 2020 Costieres de Nimes Vielles Vignes GSM: Fabulously dense and concentrated, this one the greatest "Rhone varietal" red wine deals we've ever offered. Produced from 80+-year-old vines. Scored 92-94-points out of the barrel in January by Jeb Dunnock who commented on it's "rocking levels of black and blue fruits as well as notes of smoked meats, violets, and spring flowers. Concentrated and mouthfilling on the palate, it should be another gem of a wine from this talented team."

Singing lavender, simmered plums and black raspberry, complemented with savory notes of dark earth, roasted thyme and fennel. Dense and concentrated but nicely focused on the palate with elegant lifted acidity and mineral laced tannins carrying chalky black raspberry and licorice notes carry through the finish. Nice Asian spice retronasal note completes the experience nicely.
