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

Domaine Saint-Anne, Cotes-du-Rhone-Villages St Gervais Southern Rhone, France 2015

70% Grenache, 30% Syrah

CURRANT & PLUM, WHITE PEPPER & MINERALLY EARTH, RED RASPBERRY PRESERVES

One of the fabulous yet relatively lesser-known corners of the Cotes-du-Rhone Villages occupying the “Right Bank,” Saint-Gervais lies northwest of Tavel and Lirac, at roughly the same latitude as Gigondas on the river’s opposite side. Domaine Saint-Anne’s Guy Steinmaier’s parents immigrated to Burgundy from Austria in the early 1930s, and he set up shop in this corner of the Rhone around 1960. This cuvée, in contrast to the estate’s more iconoclastic offerings, stars the traditional Grenache with a bit of Syrah and Cinsault providing additional interest. Concentrated red fruit, spice, and elegant earthy notes are firmly imbedded within this large, lively Mediterranean treat.

Serving Suggestion: Spicy, buttery, Ethiopian stewed beef. Black bean curry w/ diced bell peppers, tomato purée, coconut, & cumin.

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.
