Wines with Grenache

Papa Provençal Vin de France Cuvee V by James Rose 2015

Grenache 70%, Cinsault 30%
This is our own exclusive blend, made by us, just 200 cases made. For you! It was a challenge to make a rosé with both freshness and fruit in 2015 due to the summer warmth. Much of what we tasted was too sweet, too heavy. So we put in a bit more Cinsault than Grenache for better balance. From old vines on limestone at 400m, by direct press in concrete tank. Silky. Refreshing, juicy. Outstanding value for a limited version artisan wine.

Charmasson Vin de France Sept Syllabes Rosé 2014

Grenache, Cinsault, Clairette, Mourvèdre, Syrah, Carignan
Nadia and Christian Charmasson are based in Tavel and used to make one of the best we ever tasted, a full-bodied but subtle, lovely rosé wine. But they wanted to make natural wines and use their grapes in both Tavel and Lirac for red, white or rosé as they thought the grapes fitted best, thus Tavel grapes for red as well rosé. This rosé is made from a blend of 7 grapes and has an amazing complexity and terroir transparency. Production is tiny, winemaking totally non-interventionist, whole bunch and no makeup. The wines are truly hand-crafted.

Tour du Bon Bandol Rosé 2013

Mourvèdre 60%, Grenache, Cinsault
Agnes Henry has long made richly flavoured, energetic, savoury, organic Bandol, some of the best, most characterful in the Appellation, and in all 3 colours. 20 years ago she employed and gave a start to one Thierry Puzelat, no less! [more] This Rosé always tastes better in its second year in bottle, having rounded out, it recalls both the neighbouring seaside and the wild scrub of the local hills. It boasts just 13% alcohol and is a terrific mariage with salad meats, all kinds of fishes and picnics.

Terrebrune Bandol Rosé 2014

Mourvèdre 60%, Grenache, Cinsault
“2012 Coup de Coeur. The most subtle rosé in Provence”, says Revue de Vins de France and the wine has many Michelin star listings in France, too. There is Provence rosé, then there is Bandol rosé, and then there is Terrebrune, with its unique style being delicate yet richly flavoured with very fine structure! Where many rosé are deliberately simple and not quite red or white, this is perhaps both red and white! It comes from a unique terroir in Bandol based on a limestone subsoil with "terre brune" topsoil, which has always been farmed organically since planting in 1962. The wine is made very simply and sees no oak. The wine comes in at just 12.85% alcohol, too!

Papa Provençal Vin de France La Cuvée Rouge 2014

Grenache 80%, Syrah 20%
This is our own original blend. Made by us... for you! I make it with the assistance of my "Papa Provençal", former vigneron of Domaine de Cassan, and a local winemaker consultant who works with 25 local estates in the Ventoux and Beaumes de Venise and who knows just where to source the best wines to blend to my style. Fruit, freshness and finesse are the pre-requisites; I look for the opposite of people's image of heavy, dense, sweet wines from the Rhône. The red is always light but aromatic with perfumed red fruits. It comes from old vines in the Ventoux, farmed basically organically and made and aged traditionally in concrete tank.

Clos Perdus IGP Côtes Catalanes L'Année Rouge 2013

Charmasson Vin de France La Valériane Rouge 2012

Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Carignan, Clairette
From Nadia and Christian Charmasson’s biodynamic estate in Tavel, using Tavel fruit as well as LIrac, this is one of the most beautiful, perfumed natural wines I’ve tasted this year. It’s made by whole bunch ferment and bottled and labelled by hand. This is Grenache at its most spectacular outside of old school Chateauneuf. You sense the warmth as well as the depth of Provençal flavour.

Charvin Côtes du Rhône 2013

Grenache 85%, Syrah, Carignan
If you want to discover the real, traditional taste of Rhone wine, made by one of the great artisan producers of today, this is it. This is surely tomorrow's cult wine, lost today in the sea, the ocean, of mediocre, mass-produced, modern, technological Cotes du Rhone. Taste Charvin to re-discver, or discover for the first time, what great, real wine can be produced for a modes price, with a great terroir. Charvin Chateauneuf grows in stature and quality with every vintage. The Cotes du Rhone is one of the great teases. It's also organic and contains minimal sulfites. 2013 is a sublime vintage.

La Garrigue Vacqueyras 2012

Grenache 80%, Syrah, Cinsault, Mourvedre
Garrigue by name, Garrigue by nature, this wonderful old, and old school, estate gets great balance and freshness, a Provençal herb, floral and mineral character from the hot plateau of Vacqueyras by sticking to now rather old fashioned methods (or young hipster!) of organic farming, whole bunch fermentation, basket pressing, long ageing in concrete tank and minimal intervention. Here is the essence of Southern Rhône Grenache. The production volume is brilliantly consistent and allows great cost performance pricing.

Clos Perdus Corbières Prioundo 2013

Grenache 80%, Cinsault 20%
Prioundo means the beautiful valley in the language of Oc, the "langue d'oc". This wine wears an air of serenity. It's farmed biodynamically and made without sulfites, just a dash at bottling to give 25 mg/L SO2 Tot. It's also made with wild yeasts and half whole bunch, from a Rhône blend that's atypical here and comes out more mineral, floral and earthy than would a Southern Rhône wine. This shows why Les Clos Perdus is considered one of the top artisan farmers today in the Languedoc-Roussillon.

Espiers Gigondas 2013

Grenache 65%, Syrah 35%
A difficult year produced some deliciously drinkable and juicy wines. This, our usual favourite Gigondas, made from organic, hillside vines, has just 13.64% alcohol (and a modest 43 mg/L SO2 Tot) but still offers fantastically rich and complex classic Gigondas fruit. As usual the tannins are velvet, the acidity gentle but very present. Made simply using wild yeasts in concrete with 30% seeing some oak. Very limited production.

Bois de Boursan Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2012

Grenache 70%, Mourvedre, Syrah etc
If you want old school finesse and terroir purity, this is the wine! It stands apart from the crowd having never veered away from traditional methods. It comes from some of the oldest vines of the Appellation organically farmed on a mosaic of different soils. This, along with whole bunch fermentation and long ageing in old foudres, are the key to the natural freshness, beauty and complexity of this wine. Will age gracefully for 30 years or more.

Charvin Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2013

Grenache 85%, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Vaccarese
Charvin is very special. It's hard to describe how much Chateauneuf-du-Pape has changed over the last decade towards a modern and heavily Parker-influenced style of wine; and we're not fans. Charvin, like Bois de Boursan, has rested true to the roots and traditions of this brilliant terroir. Works organically and makes his wines like his ancestors. A real artisan star of Southern France, if you want to discover the beauty of Grenache, stop here!
