Provence has a long and varied wine history, dating back over 2000 years. Under the influence of various cultures throughout the centuries, including the Greeks, Romans, Catalans, Gauls and Savoyards, Provence has had a rich and diverse array of grape varietals introduced to its soil. Its storied history has resulted in a modern-day Provence whose sheer magnitude of wines is unrivaled almost anywhere else on earth. Do like we do and snap up every opportunity to enjoy the gorgeous, terroir-driven wines from Provence. Start with today's Three-Pack Special, the 2013 Château du Galoupet Cru Classé Côtes de Provence Rouge!
Côtes de Provence, in the eastern region of Provence, is known for its bone-dry Rosé wines but deserves high praise for its nuanced interpretation of Rhône valley blends. Today's offer, from the centuries-old Château du Galoupet, is a powerful yet elegant homage to its terroir; indeed, the property's proximity to the ocean and the Mistral winds, its Mediterranean climate and abundant sun exposure as well as its mineral-laden soil bring forth complex, expressive wines that display a vivid sense of place. A classic blend of Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre aged for 18 months in a combination of new and seasoned oak, it entices with aromas of black fruits, leather and pencil shavings. The medium-to-full-bodied palate is redolent of blackberry, cassis and black raspberry, with accents of savory herbs and stony minerality. The fruit is velvety-smooth up-front and on the mid-palate; firm tannins and vibrant acidity emerge on the long finish.
Enjoy these beauties now. Sock them away in the cellar and savor them over the next several years. Get yourself a six-pack and do BOTH - CHEERS!
