An exciting discovery from the south of France

The Pertuisane story began in the foothills of the Pyrennées. In 2002 winemaker Richard Case and his wife Sarah staked their future on two hectares of ancient Grenache vines surrounding the village of Maury. Convinced of its truly exceptional terroir, they added eight more hectares in time for the 2003 harvest resulting in the first small run of high-quality, handcrafted wine. 

Maury is a remarkable winemaking village in the Catalan region of southern France. It lies midway between Spanish Catalonia and the southern Rhône valley and, like the vineyards of Priorat and Châteauneuf du Pape, is dominated by gnarled old-vine Grenache on broken, black schist soils. The landscape is tough and unforgiving. Not much else survives here except an impenetrable garrigue of Spanish oak, dense scrub, aromatic lavender, rosemary and thyme. The summer sun is intense and the windswept vineyards can't help but produce small quantities of rich, intensely flavoured fruit. 

Yields at Pertuisane are exceptionally low. Vineyards range from 20 - 100 years of age, although most are over 50 years old and produce as little as 10 hectoliters per hectare (less than half a ton an acre). They are dry-farmed and harvested by hand.
Le Nain Violet is the domaine's principal red wine sourced form their oldest Grenache vineyards. This richly flavoured and concentrated wine typically spends 15 months in barrel with just a small percentage of new oak.

The wine is available at a 25% Pre Arrival Discount. A wine for lovers of something different, especially those with a penchant for ancient Grenache.

Pertuisane Nain Violet label Jeb Dunnuck, The Wine Advocate: I was able to taste the 2016 IGP Cotes Catalanes Le Nain Violet from multiple barrels, and while 2016 was a more difficult vintage than 2015, you wouldn't know it by tasting this cuvee. All of the samples have a deep and rich color, terrific aromatics, notable purity and a supple, sexy, full-bodied style that's going to drink nicely right out of the gate. 92-95 Points

Chevillon Robert Vaucrains Mood New

Domaine Robert Chevillon Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Vaucrains 2014
10 bottles available

The top vineyard from one of Nuits-St-Georges most famous makers.

John Gilman, View from the Cellar: 
The 2014 Domaine Chevillon Vaucrains is another stunning wine in the making, as I love the synthesis of the elegance of the vintage with the depth and power inherent in this great vineyard. The stunning nose soars from the glass in a sappy blend of cherries, pomegranate, nutskin, again, very stony minerality, gamebird, a touch of mustard seed and a judicious framing of cedary wood. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and shows almost bottomless depth of sappy fruit, with stunning transparency, ripe tannins and a very, very long, perfectly balanced and soil-driven finish. Sheer greatness in the making! (Drink between 2025-2075). 95 Points

Burghound: 
Ample wood spice is present on the brooding and deeply pitched nose of plum, dark currant, smoked meat and sauvage scents. Though this is an overtly powerful and muscular wine the seductively textured mid-palate is velvety thanks to the copious amount of dry extract that also buffers the notably firm tannic spine on the gorgeously long finale. This strikingly good effort will be approachable somewhat earlier than usual but make no mistake this is still going to require a long stay in a cool cellar. (Drink starting 2029). 92-95 Points
Pre Arrival Price $215.00
