2015 Blanc, Vaucluse "Sud Absolu" (Ligiere, Domaine La)

Domaine La Ligiere, Vaucluse Blanc "Sud Absolu", Rhone Valley, France 2015

{organic} 100% Muscat á Petits Grains

APRICOT & PINEAPPLE, SULTANA, DRY WITH VIBRANT ACIDITY

Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains, an ancient pan-Mediterranean grape with no shortage of clout in this corner of the Southern Rhone has long been typecast as a grape whose undeniable potential for decadence and dessert should be pursued to the absolute fullest. Taking a totally different tact with this cuvée, Ligière follows a decidedly non-dessert, dry route here and employs the fiercely characterful grape as a delicious quaffer. This is an unusually refreshing yet perfumed example of what is most likely the original “Muscat” It is, quite literally, the granddaddy of Torrontes, and we highly recommend it to fans of that Argentine grape!

Serving Suggestion: Crab-based bouillabaisse w/ copious rouille (French Mediterranean spicy olive oil-infused mayonnaise w/ garlic & saffron). Similarly, spider rolls w/ scallion, lots of masago, & aioli!

2013 Cotes-du-Rhone Rouge (Ligiere, Domaine La)

Domaine La Ligiere, Cotes-du-Rhone Rouge, Southern Rhone, France 2013

{organic} 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 10% Mourvedre

RED RASPBERRY & CURRANT, TANGY PRUNE, VIOLETS

Where Vacqueyras, Gigondas, and Beaumes come together in the northwestern reaches of the Mediterranean Vaucluse department, Domaine Ligière plies its craft, siphoning the sun and the wholesome perfumes of the Provençal countryside into breathtaking wines. This Cotes du Rhone is a full stop lighter than the estate's profoundly rich Vacqueyras and Gigondas cuvées, but it shares with them a profoundly pretty aromatic mystique and spicy, violet-hued Grenache-ish-ness.

Serving Suggestion: Grilled pork chop w/ lavender/balsamic glaze & garlic-laden smashed potatoes. Seitan gyro w/ lemony cucumber sauce, dill, & cayenne pepper.

2015 Gigondas (Ligiere, Domaine La)

Domaine La Ligiere, Gigondas, Rhone Valley, France 2015 70% Grenache 30% Mourvedre

{biodynamic}

PEPPERY BLACKBERRY, LAVENDER & VIOLETS, ROASTED CHOCOLATE

Gigondas has a well-earned reputation for yielding what are often the Southern Rhone’s firmest, most structured reds, and while this wine’s urgent aromas of roasted cacao nibs, baking spices, and tobacco indicate that this example might be a bit of a beast, it has a definitively delicate side as well. Employing biodynamic practices on a small plot of land, Philippe and Elizabeth Bernard craft this profoundly expressive Grenache and Mourvedre blend which is fermented exclusively with native yeasts and aged in concrete. Get jiggy with Gigondas.

Serving Suggestion: Savory Peruvian drumsticks & plantain w/ cinnamon, clove, & star anise. Roasted red pepper stuffed w/ cantal, pimento, & garlic.

2014 Muscat de Beaumes de Venise [375ml] (Ligiere, Domaine La)

Domaine La Ligiere, Muscat de Beaumes de Venise, Rhone Valley, France 2014

{organic} 100% Muscat á Petits Grains

PLUMP STONE FRUIT & SULTANA, FIRM WAXINESS & CANDIED CITRUS

Classic Beaumes de Venise, fortified with brandy and produced in a manner similar to port, is among the world’s most exotic, etherial desert wines and one which has become a coveted rarity outside its immediate area of production. Domaine La Ligiere, located in the heart of Beaumes, biodynamically produces exceptional wines – both there and in a few of the most revered neighboring appellations of the Southern Rhone. This distinctive, awesomely aromatic white stands in contrast to the estate’s famously robust reds but is no less powerful. This is a special treat and immensely memorable wine.

Serving Suggestion: Pork paté w/ orange peel, pistachio, & Grand Marnier. Lemon-apricot poundcake.

2016 Rosé, Vaucluse "Sud Absolu" (Ligiere, Domaine La)

Domaine La Ligiere, Vaucluse Rosé "Sud Absolu", Southern Rhone, France 2016

{organic} 100% Carignan

JUICY RASPBERRY & LEMON ZEST, FIRM & HYPER-REFRESHING

Carignan, with its reputation for robust rusticity, is probably not the grape that you'd immediately suspect upon tasting this vibrantly berryish, lean, clean, and by no means mean rosé from the northwestern fringe of the Provençal countryside. As eloquently balanced as this wine is, we can't help but think of it as the adult equivalent of a raspberry-lemon push pop – served cold and filled with firm red fruit flavors and citrusy tang! This is just one of the many gems from Domaine La Ligière's paradisiacal Southern Rhone vineyards…

Serving Suggestion: Papaya salad w/ grilled squid & pork. Battered & fried cubanelle peppers w/ lemon juice & paprika.

2014 Vacqueyras Rouge "Point G" (Ligiere, Domaine La)

Domaine La Ligiere, Vacqueyras Rouge "Point G", Rhone Valley, France 2014

{biodynamic} 80% Grenache (old vines), 15% Syrah, 5% Mourvedre

BLACK CHERRY & RASPBERRY, DARK ROAST COFFEE, SUPPLE

The Southern Rhone oscillates around Grenache – particularly gnarly, old Grenache vines. These vines access a kind of underground pipeline, extracting ancient secrets, winding deeper into the sandy-clay soils of the Vacqueyras region. The vines in this particular plot predate the naming of Vacqueyras as an AOC, the winemaker, and even the estate itself! While biodynamically produced and fermented with ambient yeasts, the details of production still pale in comparison to the lush vibrance of ripe red and black fruits as well as the tantalizing warmth of coffee beans and fig. This suppleness is set beautifully against firm tannic structure, bringing us something to consider cellaring. It’s packing enough finesse, though, to be cracked tonight. That’s the point! 

Serving Suggestion: Pan-roasted pork belly w/ spiced red plum, ginger, & rhubarb. Lamb w/ walnut, fig, & goat cheese salad. Cajun portobello sandwich w/ avocado & remoulade.
