Tasting Notes

I met winemaker Sophie Guiraudon a few years ago at the organic wine fair Millésime Bio. It's an annual event where organic winemakers from all over the world gather to show their wines. I tasted with her and was immediately impressed with the quality of the wines. So much so, I made an arrangements to visit her winery right after the fair ended. Sophie is a true one-woman show, farming 25 acres of vines while running her humble facility in the region of Corbieres. The vines for the "Lolo" cuvee are planted on silty-clay limestone soils which lend freshness and a structure to the wine. When it’s Tuesday and you want a glass of wine to go with the roast chicken you picked up at the market or maybe a little pizza you just ordered in for the evening, the Lolo is that perfect weekday wine. "Lolo" is the expression mothers use when they tell their children to drink their milk. "Drink your Lolo, so that you can grow up big and strong," they say. Lolo is a blend of 81% Carignan, 10% Syrah, 7% Grenache, and 2% Mourvedre. (Keith Mabry, K&L Wine Buyer)

    Sophie remains a strong advocate for her native Carignan grape, believing that if properly cultivated and kept to low yields it can make extraordinary wines. And the evidence is there, for year after year her Carignan-based wines engage with their superb fruit, delineation and charm. Her 2015 Lolo de l’Anhe is a blend of Carignan, Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre. Direct, appealing and honest, with bright, enticing notes of raspberry, violets, wild thyme and kitchen spice, this is a wine for the picnic basket or by the grill.

    I fell in love with this wine because the "kitchen spice" aromatics and flavors remind me of the smells coming out of the kitchen on a cool, lazy fall day. It is composed of 81% Carignan, which gives the wine a great "lift," (think raspberry bush) and the rest is Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre, which round out the blend very nicely. Don't be fooled by the word "Carignan", though, the wine has tons of depth, great displays of darker fruits, and a long, elegant finish. Although I would consider it full bodied, you could pair this bottle with anything from roasted chicken to pizza, burgers, meatloaf, lasagna, etc. Enjoy!

    The bouquet of this wine is expressive and inviting with lively fruit aromas. In the mouth it is medium bodied with soft dark fruit flavors . This wine has balance and finesse and will be a joy to drink alone or with pork or chicken.

    The 2015 vintage is so generous, this is one of Sophie's best out of the gate drinking reds. Loaded with raspberry fruit, light brush garrigue and vibrant floral tones that are the hallmark of her Carignan based wines, with WAY overdelivers for the price. A serious wine but seriously fun as well!
