2007 Chateau Mourgues du Gres Capitelles....$21.99 (our regular price)
Compare to The Wine Merchant "Email price $22.99" 7/23/09 email
"A sensational red wine is the 2007 Capitelles du Mourgues, a Cote Rotie look-alike from the treasure-trove of values, Costieres de Nimes. A combination of 83% Syrah and the rest Carignan and Grenache, all aged in 600 liter demi-muids, it boasts an opaque purple color as well as an extraordinary nose of blackberries, creme de cassis, licorice, and spring flowers. Sensational purity, full-bodied richness, good underlying freshness and vibrancy, and an amazingly long finish suggest a wine that costs 2-3 times as much. This exceptional effort should evolve for a decade."

2007 Chateau Mourgue du Gres Les Galets Rouges...$15.99 (our regular price)
Compare to The Wine Merchant email - "On Sale $16.99" 7/23/09 email
"Collard’s 2007 Costieres de Nimes Les Galets Rose – Syrah, with a splash of Grenache – seems to have hoarded fresh, tart red raspberries and herbs with abandon and delivers them in a lip-smacking, refreshing, glossy, seemingly light (despite 13.5% alcohol) package. Suggestions of salt, stone, and roasted meat emerge as you work this around in your mouth – and there is something thought-provoking as well as sensually delightful about a rose that clings this persistently to the palate. Relish it over the coming 6-9 months. "

2007 Domaine Les Grands Bois Cotes du Rhone Villages
"The last release from this vintage, the 2007 Cotes du Rhone-Villages Cuvee Gabrielle is a blend of 55% Grenache (80-year-old vines) and the rest Syrah, Carignan, and Mourvedre whose upbringing is in old barrels. This unfiltered wine exhibits a dense purple color as well as sweet, sexy aromas of cherry liqueur, roasted herbs, licorice, and spice box. Full-bodied with superb purity, it is an exuberant, mouth-saturating red with no hard edges, and a seamless integration of tannin, acidity, and alcohol. This beauty fully illustrates what is so special about the 2007 vintage. Enjoy it over the next 4-5 years."

2007 Saint Damien Cotes du Rhone Vieilles Vignes....$15.99
The 2007 Cotes du Rhone Vieilles Vignes, which could easily pass for an outstanding Chateauneuf du Pape is a blend of 90% Grenache and the rest Syrah and Mourvedre and possesses superb intensity as well as a sweet perfume of kirsch liqueur, licorice, lavender, and soil undertones. Deep and full-bodied with terrific texture, stunning richness, and a long finish, this brilliant Cotes du Rhone can be enjoyed over the next 4-5 years.
