How about a great Côtes du Rhône Villages for
$13.50 per bottle??
We sold out our first offering from Michel Gassier in a flash (Nostre Pais) but we have a bit of his CerciusCôtes du Rhône Villages on hand!
This is a well built wine, with up-front fruit, great length, and a long, long finish!
Was $20.50/btl, now $15/bottle!
$14.25/bottle for six, or only $13.50per bottle in a 12 pack!!
Shipping? Pick it up for free, or we can ship for no more than $17/case anywhere in CA!
92 points Rhone Report: "Made from a blend of 85% Grenache and 15% Syrah, from 80+ year vines, that is aged for 6 months in concrete tank, the 2011 Michel Gassier Cercius is a lush, decadent offering that delivers loads of black raspberry and blackberry styled fruit that is intermixed with notions of licorice, rolled stone, roasted garrigue, and hints of leather on the nose.
Layered, fresh, and beautifully textured, with a full-bodied, rich feel in the mouth that never seems heavy, this absolutely knockout Côtes du Rhône is a candidate for a multi-case purchase, and will deliver the goods for 4-6 years. Do not let the price tag fool you, this is a gorgeous wine that will stand up to any number of more prestigious and expensive bottlings."
Pairs well with various meats and cheeses including wine-braised beef, raviolis with cepe mushrooms, roasted duck, veal chops with radicchio, white beans, grilled leg of lamb with thyme and allspice, brie, and for the more adventurous, epoisses, or other washed rind cheeses!.
