2015 Cotes-du-Rhone-Villages Saint-Gervais "Les Mourillons" (Sainte-Anne, Domaine)

Domaine Saint-Anne, Cotes-du-Rhone-Villages Saint-Gervais "Les Mourillons", Southern Rhone, France 2015

100% Syrah

LOGANBERRY & CASSIS, GARRIGUES & GRAPHITE, DECADENT

Perhaps having not quite achieved the cult-classic status enjoyed by Saint-Anne’s Mourvedre-dominated cuvée, this equally unusual Syrah-centric Southern Rhone from the estate is no less remarkable. Homing in on an absolutely textbook-worthy distillation of Syrah’s essences, this more Mediterranean example is quite distinct from those of the Northern Rhone. Firm, savory blackish-purple fruit character, courtesy of the variety itself, comes magnificently studded with dark, mineralistic elegance, peppery spice, and the quintessential perfumes of the region’s garrigues. An elixir!

Serving Suggestion: Pan-seared duck breasts w/ prune & port sauce. Arugula & chopped brazil nut salad w/ roquefort & thyme-infused, port-balsamic drizzle.

2015 Cotes-du-Rhone-Villages Saint-Gervais "Les Rouvieres" (Sainte-Anne, Domaine)

Domaine Saint-Anne, Cotes-du-Rhone-Villages Saint-Gervais "Les Rouvieres", Southern Rhone, France 2015

70% Mourvedre, 15% Grenache, 15% Syrah

BLACK CHERRY & CHOCOLATE-COVERED FIG, ROSEWATER & ROSEMARY

Emerging from the western reaches of the Southern Rhone, this unusually Mourvèdre-driven cuvée is quite iconoclastic and quietly iconic. Mourvedre enjoys a lofty reputation among growers throughout Mediterranean France for the character and intensity that it can contribute, but it also has earned the reputation of a sluggish ripener and, thus, a liability in cooler years. Saint-Anne’s fame is partially anchored to the estate’s affinity for the variety, ripening it to perfection and trusting it to headline this broad-shouldered and exquisitely exotic red. File closer to Chateauneuf than Bandol...

Serving Suggestion: Lamb chops w/ cumin, cinnamon, fennel, & olive oil. Flatbread w/ feta, black olives, spinach, & roast garlic.
