Domaine de Poulvarel Les Perrottes 2014
We heard you! Here it is, finally -- the new vintage!! Best quality/price ratio ever?
This is honestly one of most re-requested wines we bring in from France -- those in the know understand what a jaw-dropping QPR wine this is --- totally in a class of its own in this price range. And that’s BEFORE we get to working on the price!!
This wine is BIG, bold, unapologetically dark and intense, and a ridiculous, screaming, no-brainer deal. When we drink it, we imagine the deep, powerful voice of James Earl Jones (Darth Vader and “THIS is CNN”) saying: “This Syrah is redolent of the potent essence of blue fruit”. It reaches into your soul. It IS a favorite because of the price, yes, but this is serious stuff, packed with dark fruits, spices, smoke and camphor, with a savory, smoked meat kind of feel to it. Not a heavy wine, but oh-so flavorful with a huge, long finish. Fantastic!!
While it lasts, of course…!
