"Les Amorelles," Coteaux de Peyriac - 2020

Item # 25577 750mL

The undeniable sunshine of Southern France comes through with full on fleshy, fruit-forward, scrumptious black currants and cassis. An unblemished Cabernet and Merlot blend, darkly aromatic with a wealth of plums on the nose and palate, textured by soft tannins. Pair this red as the French do, with rare steak and a nugget of blue cheese.

Staff Pick Notes

Languedoc-Roussillon has been producing wine forever and is where I often look when seeking spectacular value. This wine by husband and wife team Marie-Claude and Jean-Louis Poudou shows what Côteaux de Peyrac has to offer. This is an enjoyable Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot blend and all the classic notes are here; cassis, black licorice, plums, and even some light herbs. This is a perfect pair with midweek roast, meatloaf or porkchops and has enough fruit to be enjoyable by itself! Have a glass or two!

Some wine drinkers are quick to dismiss varieties that become too fashionable, but Merlot is popular for good reason. It has one of the most impressive and distinctive textures of any wine, and has long been prized for the "softening" effect it can have on Cabernet Sauvignon - especially...

Cabernet Sauvignon

The result of an illicit affair a hundred-odd years ago between Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon today enjoys more worldwide popularity than both of its parents combined. It is the principal grape of Bordeaux, and as such has rightly earned its place among the greatest and most long-lived wines of the Old World; of course, it is also the most heralded grape of California, positioning it at the forefront of the New World wine scene as well. Today, Cabernet Sauvignon has a...
