Tasting Notes

Just outside the city of Montpellier lie the vineyards of La Croix Belle, a family owned and operated Domaine that traces it roots in the region through more than two centuries. Francoise and Jacques Boyer assumed control of the property in the late 1970s with an eye towards making clean expressive wines that reflect the region. A lot of replanting was done, yields were lowered and modern winemaking techniques and facilities were adopted. This eye for detail had delivered us some of the freshest and most compelling values of the season. The Caringole is a blend of Syrah (65%), Merlot (20%) and Carignan (15%) that is brought up in stainless steel tank. It is a vibrant red with fresh berry notes and a delicious, lively palate.

    Lush, spice, layered with dark fruits, leather and firm tannin. Deep purple color with hints of blueberry skin and dark chocolate. This wonder Carignan dominant wine is going to make a great companion to food specially fatty plates of cured meat and nutty cheese. plus it will be great with lamb, duck or chicken. It will make you a super host at your next party and leave your gusts wondering what kind of price have you paid for this magical wine.

    Really nice everyday wine. And I say that in the best sense of the way. Soft, juicy but with a defined structure holding it all together. It would pair easily with all sorts of everyday fare, from burgers, to chili to grilled tuna salad!

    What an amazing little everyday red for under $10! Mostly Syrah and vinified in stainless steel, this is bright, fresh and ready to drink now. It's got a bounty of red, ripe fruit and a well integrated structure. A must for anyone looking for a great value for weeknight wines.
