2014 Fronton Rouge "Réserve" (Colombière, Chateau La)

Chateau La Colombière, "Reserve" Fronton Rouge, Southwest, France 2012

{organic} 80% Négrette, 10% Syrah, 10% Cabernets Sauvignon & Franc

BLACKBERRY & RIPE CRANBERRY, PEPPERY MINERAL & SWEET HERBS

Fronton remains one of Southwestern France's frontiers for wine lovers. Despite being situated less than half an hour from the city of Toulouse, the region keeps a low international profile. Its reds team with deep purple fruit and a wholesome spiciness which is striking yet understated. The Cuvée Réserve from Chateau la Colombière, an estate with a rich history of over 600 years, presents the region's Négrette grape in the starring role with support from Cabernet and Syrah.

Serving Suggestion: Stewed venison with tomatoes, red onions, and oregano. Punjabi goat curry with potatoes, cardamom, and coriander.

{biodynamic} 100% Négrette

RASPBERRY & BLACK CHERRY, ETHEREAL HERBS, GENEROUS SPICE

The Cauvin family of Chateau la Colombiere have, with their "Cuvée Vinum," brought forward an elegant and balanced representation both of Négrette and of their terroir, showcasing firm purple fruit, elegant earthy mineral, dill, and vigorous spice which perfectly complements the wine's medium body and solid frame.

Serving Suggestion: Cassoulet with pork shoulder, sausage, and bacon. Roasted cornish hen with thyme rosemary, and Sage.

2014 Negrette "Coste Rouge" (Colombière, Chateau La)

Chateau La Colombiere, "Coste Rouge" Fronton Rouge, Southwest, France 2014

{biodynamic} 100% Négrette

EXOTIC, EARTHY & PEPPERY. BLACKBERRY & VIOLETS

This is Diane & Philippe Cauvin's pure Negrette grape cuvee from a single parcel of vineyard with iron rich soils of pebbles, gravel and sand. The distinctive soil gives the wine a softer but more intense flavor of the Negrette grape, almost heightening its characteristics. This is the most pure expression of wine from Fronton, a standard by which others are measured!

Serving Suggestions: Cassoulet, the bean, pork, duck and sausage casserole of southwest France is a classic pairing, since they originate in the same region.
