The South of France is a giant garden district and the vineyards therein are producing extraordinary grapes that are vinified into high quality value oriented wines. Wine from Languedoc-Roussillon, Provence and the Southern Rhone are redefining the concept of “value”, French style.
2014 Picpoul de Pinet, Languedoc-Roussillon

On the nose, the Miraval shows delicate notes of raspberries, peaches and white flowers. The expression of the soil is revealed on the palate by its impressive freshness bringing minerality and salinity, a signature of 2014. It has great balance, good length and character. 91-point rating from The Wine Advocate: “The finest rosé yet from this estate, the wine is made by the top notch team at Chateau Beaucastel for Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie.”
2011 Guigal Côtes du Rhône
LIST PRICE 12.00; OUR PRICE 9.99
There are aromas of fresh fruits with red berries and spices. It is full, round and racy, including the tannins. Wine Enthusiast gives this a 90-point rating: “A perennial favorite, it’s reassuring to see that the quality continues to remain high even from Guigal’s least expensive cuvee. Red fruit, cherries and raspberries, marry easily with hints of clove, cracked pepper, black olive and espresso. It’s round on the mid-palate, showing more focus and ample length on the finish.”

The property of the Grangeon family for many generations, Domaine de Cristia is located in Courthézon, on the eastern sector of Châteauneuf-du-Pape and spreads over 58 hectares. This 100% Grenache is from vieilles vignes, old vines, 65 years old. It over-delivers for the price.
2011 Henri de Lanzac Lirac, Rhône
LIST PRICE 23.00; OUR PRICE 19.99
Deep blueberry and forest aromas precede the very long flavors of black cherry, bramble and black pepper. Muscular and packed, it finishes with drying tannins. A great value! 90 points from The Wine Advocate – “The 2011 Lirac Cuvee Reserve (50% Grenache, 30% Syrah and the rest Cinsault, Mourvèdre and Carignan) offers dense, ripe, black currant and black cherry fruit intermixed with licorice, forest floor and underbrush. This spicy, fleshy, succulent red possesses both structure and depth. Rated Best Buy”
