3 Under the Radar French Values

Posted by

We often see incredible values go completely under the radar. We have identified 3 such French values that deserve a re-mention and should not be missed. While the labels may not be pretty, what's inside the bottle is exceptional with solid Quality-to-Price (QPR) ratios and some great press.

Maison Loron & Fils Xavier et Nicolas Barbet Moulin-a-Vent Vieilles Vignes Beaujolais 2010

"Polished accents of oak, graphite, ground clove and anise lace flavors of blackberry pie, sun-dried black cherry, espresso and tar in this well-knit red, with firm, integrated tannins. Chewy finish. Drink now through 2018." - Wine Spectator, 90 points!

Beaujolais Gamay blend.

Pierre-Henri Morel Cotes du Rhone-Villages Signargues 2011

"An elegant style, with silky texture and pure, unadorned bitter plum, blood orange and singed alder notes all racing along through the rooibos tea-tinged finish, revealing a buried mineral accent. Drink now through 2016." - Wine Spectator, 91 point!50% Grenache, 25% Syrah and 25% Mourvedre.

M. Chapoutier Cotes du Roussillon Villages Domaine de Bila-Haut Occultum Lapidem 2011

"Great dark garnet-red. On the nose, at first quite closed with a dominant of graphitic, leather, and then intense aromas of pepper, black fruits and scrubs. On the mouth, the attack is rich, dense. Then the wine is fleshy and solar. The final is sappy served by delicate tannins and a great freshness." - Winery. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate, 94-96 points!

Syrah, Grenache and Carignan, fermented in stainless steel and aged in oak.

Our price: $29.00
