2015 Saint-Chinian "Les Schistes" (Borie La Vitarèle, Domaine)

Domaine Borie La Vitarèle, Saint Chinian "Les Schistes", Languedoc, France 2015

{sustainable} 50% Grenache, 45% Syrah, 5% Carignan

DENSE VIOLET FRUIT, LUSCIOUS MINERAL & EARTH, MEDITERRANEAN SPICE

This special cuvée from Jean-Francois and Cathy Izarn is a testament to the synergy that they've encouraged between their land, their vines, and their work-intensive but fiercely naturalistic methods. Bursting with black raspberry and succulent baked strawberry, this powerfully ripe monolith of fruit is marbled with the complexities of chalky earth (from which the wine's name is derived), exotic mediterranean spices, and a touch of oaken vanilla richness. Vive le Languedoc!

Serving Suggestion: Braised whole duck with prunes, rosemary, & thyme. Pork rilettes on grilled toast.

2016 Saint-Chinian "Les Terres Blanches" (Borie La Vitarèle, Domaine)

Domaine Borie La Vitarèle, Saint Chinian "Les Terres Blanches", Languedoc, France 2016

{biodynamic) 45% Grenache, 45% Syrah, 10% Mourvedre

RIPE BLACK RASPBERRIES, GARRIGUES. FIRM & FIERCELY PURPLE

Nestled amongst the garrigues surrounded by pine forest, the few acres of Borie la Vitarèle's oldest vines are treated like a private garden employing biodynamic compost made from local plants. Hand-harvesting ensures quality, and the wine is aged for 12 months in French oak. Dark purple, it exudes fresh aromas of ripe raspberries, thyme, and lavender. The generous aromas of black fruit, dark chocolate, and light vanilla oak are utterly seductive.

Serving Suggestion: Leg of lamb roasted slowly w/ garlic & rosemary. Washed rind cheeses w/ chutney; shish kabobs.
