Staff Pick Notes

This great red wine from the Languedoc region represents the taste and the personality of the winemaker, Bruno Lafon, and it is a great expression of the Languedoc terroir. Mourvedre is added for its body, Grenache for its delicacy, and Carignan for its origin in rocky Southwest France. This wine is a blend of these grapes with Mourvedre being the main one. Harvest is early in the season to keep freshness and balance and native yeast is used. A great, affordable wine with spicy notes such as cinnamon and flavors of plum and chocolate. Elegant and rustic at the same time I would pair it with grilled meat cooked with Mediterranean herbs like rosemary, oregano, and thyme!

Grenache

The Grenache grape (a.k.a. Grenache Noir) produces relatively pale, fruity red wines that often stop just short of sweetness.

Mourvèdre

Known as Mataro in California and Monastrell in Spain, Mourvèdre can produce bold, tannic, highly alcoholic red wines.

Rhône-style blends are cropping up all over the world, and one of the classic tried-and-true combinations is "GSM," or Grenache-Syrah-Mourvèdre. The "M" contributes focus and fleshy character to blends - but Mourvèdre also shines on its own as a varietal wine.

Carignan

Grown all over Europe and the Americas, Carignan (a.k.a. Carignane, Carignano, and Cariñena) is seldom seen as a 100% varietal wine. Many appellations of Languedoc-Roussillon must include a certain percentage of Carignan, but it is rarely the dominant grape in these blends. For years, this naturally high-yielding grape suffered from overproduction, but New World winemakers have lately taken up the Carignan cause and produced some distinctive and delicious examples. Now that it is subject to...
