France is the source of many grape varieties (such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, and Syrah) that are now planted throughout the world, as well as wine-making practices and styles of wine that have been adopted in other producing countries.
2014 Domaine de Triennes Rosé Vin de Pays du Var
“The 2014 Domaine de Triennes Rosé is a luscious blend of Cinsault, Syrah, and Grenache. Brilliant pale pink in color with mouthwatering aromas of strawberry, white flowers, and herbes de Provence. Supple, round, and juicy, filled with wild strawberry and a splash of citrus, all braced by the sneaky acidity that makes this one of our go-to pink wines each spring.”

Viognier 2013, Domaine de Vedilhan
“An aromatic, deliciously fruity Viognier. Aromas of ripe pears and peaches with a twist of Turkish delight. The fresh vibrant fruit flavours are light and elegant. Domaine de Vedilhan is the estate of the Fayet family based in the village of Moussan close to Narbonne. Vines are managed using the ‘lute raisonnée’ method. Terroir is a combination of limestone, sand and sea shale.” –Paul Roberts
Les Volets Pinot Noir 2013, Pays de l’Haute Vallée de l’Aude
This wine is a combination of fruity and slightly savoury… and absolutely delicious.
Tasting Notes (Boutinot)
Aromas of delicate raspberry and red berry fruit with quite a rich yet savoury palate of bright flavours, fleshy fruit and a full finish. A well structured and serious wine which has a nice freshness to balance the rich fruit characters. It’s showing all the signs of longevity and potential for cellaring.
Domaine Féline Jourdan Picpoul de Pinet
From the label: “This dry white wine is made from the original piquepoul grape native to the Lanquedoc on the Mediterranean coast of France by a single family estate. With citrus fruits and aniseed. The palate is well-balanced with a fresh acidity. To drink with shellfish, fish or just as an aperitif.”
2013 Cuvée de la Montagnére
60% Chardonnay / 40% Sauvignon. The field “La Montagnère” is the highest plot of vines in Valvignères, and produces only 30hl/ha. The blend of the fruity Chardonnay and the lemony mineral finesse of the Sauvignon results in a round, fresh and light wine, with fruity aromas of grapefruit, passion fruit and mango. Perfect with fish or seafood, or as an aperitif.
2011 Cuvée Ferdinand Rouge
A blend of 3 ancestral grape varieties: Syrah, Grenaches, and Carignan, matured in oak barrels. Deep and refined, displaying aromas of cocoa and blackberries. The mouth has a peppery end with a hint of liquorice. Will enhance with age, but already today it tastes excellent with a stew.
These wines are the product of strict vineyard practices and judicious oenological work. To achieve low yields and concentrated fruit, we practice: rigorous pruning and trellising; green harvesting; manual picking at optimal maturity using small crates; careful selection of grapes. The Gris de Gris - is aCorbières original! Elegant and aromatic – from five grape varieties including selected Grenache Gris, valued for it’s small, concentrated berries.
