French Classics at The Wine Market!
2007 CORAIL Rosé Côtes de Provence Château
de Roquefort $15
Wild strawberry, pink grapefruit and honeysuckle aromas are brightened by dusty minerals and white pepper. Racy red fruit flavors are light in body and possess impressive clarity. Firm citrus and red fruit flavors leave a juicy impression in their wake.
Costières de Nîmes Rosé $13
Aromas of strawberry and cherry dominate the nose. This is a rosé full of substance and concentration, with strawberry and raspberry flavors that linger on the palate. These bright red fruit flavors are balanced by a refreshing acidity in the finish. This rosé, served chilled, is perfect for food pairings that demand more than a white, but might be overwhelmed by a red.
Château St.-Martin de la Garrigue Languedoc Rosé $10
Muscular, with aromas and flavors of dried cherry and spice. Smooth peppery notes on the tannic finish.
Lascaux Coteaux du Languedoc Blanc $13
This Classic Blanc is showing buttered apricots and limes with a whiff of fennel, a blend of Roussanne, Rolle and Marsanne.
Domaine Stainte-Eugénie Corbières $13
Blend of about 60% old vine Carignan with the rest being a blend of Grenache and Syrah. Marvelously complex and clean. The red fruits burst from the glass with mild hints of toast and spice that continue through the impeccably balanced finish.
Château Clamplazens Coteaux du Languedoc La Clape La Garrigue
"Meaty and peppery, with plenty of sanguine flavors accented by dried cherry. Muscular, with Asian spice and garrigue on the balanced finish. Drink now through 2010. 2,000 cases imported."
