Domaine de Poulvarel Rouge Costieres de Nimes 2016
POULVAREL. Is it our all-time best selling, most-loved and most wildly over-delivering wine we have ever sold over the years? It’s definitely in the Top 3!! FOR A REASON! And this one….this...godsend, is from the utterly superb 2016 vintage ---- this is a “case me”, back-up-the-truck kind of buy as it has been for years. DO NOT miss this vintage!! Wow!
All we can say is move lightning quick to get this in your cart --- this is a HUGE client fave!!
Syrah/Grenache from the ancient soils located near the famous Roman aqueduct called the Pont Du Gard, built in the 1st century AD in Southern France (SW of Chateauneuf-du-Pape), is one of our proudest discoveries over the years. They seem to make wine with some sort of magic Roman elixir that charges your taste buds with energy and life. And for the price we can offer it to you? C’mon!!!
SAVORY. Black cherries, black truffles, black olives. Big wine, relatively light on its feet however, and graceful…. imagine a young Shaq breakdancing (or watch this), if you will. These wines have the ineffable sense of “garrigue”, as well, sort of a “sweet wild herbs in the dusty wind” note in them, that makes them so compelling for such a mind-meltingly great price. In 2016, this is better than ever. So PERFUMEY! Drop-dead amazing stuff -- that’s all we’ll say! While it lasts…!
