K&L Notes

Séverine Bourrier came to winemaking through her own passion for the subject, not having the family history associated with so many winemakers. She studied oenology in school and worked in Bordeaux for a decade. After meeting her husband, they relocated to a property an hour outside of Perpignan in the Roussillon. They began restoring an old château and did some replanting, rechristening the estate L’Ou, which is Catalan for "egg." The property is in an oval-shaped valley that was used as a rest area by herd animals and likely the Knights Templar on their way to various crusades. The estate consists of three primary terroirs: the alluvial marl soils that make up the valley, and two higher-elevation sites, one made up of black schist and the other brown. Their key grape variety is Syrah but Séverine also grows the classic regional varieties like Grenache and Carignan. For white grapes, they grow Grenache Gris, Grenache Blanc, Muscat and of all things, Chardonnay, which is renowned for being one of the best in the region.

    Severine and Philippe Bourrier have generated incredible excitement and enthusiasm from our entire staff for their extraordinary range of finesse-driven wines from the Roussillon region. This bright, friendly and appealing red, brimful of spice and luscious plummy fruits, displays far more aromatic complexity and freshness than expected for its very modest price point. Pair with a cheese and mushroom tart or Mediterranean cassoulet, or add it to your table at Thanksgiving. A winner all round!

    This wine is beautiful , lush and delicious. It is soft and round with dark fruit flavors that have a sense of balance. Medium-to-full bodied, it is ready to drink now and is good alone or with hearty foods.

    Superb little red food wine that is a great one to keep around the house for whenever. Tart red berry and fruit are layered here with bright acid and some great minerality. The acid really drives the wine, but there is some chewy tannin on the finish to help give the wine more structure.A very good choice to keep around for a delightfully inexpensive table wine.
