Mas de Gourgonnier, Les Baux-de-Provence Rouge 2019Regular price $20.00 Save $-20.00
Variety: Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, and Carignan
This small family-run property resides in the appellation of Les Baux de Provence, just a stone’s throw from the seaside city of Marseilles. The Cartier family has been farming organically there for many generations. Their red wines are reminiscent of the great Rhone or Bordeaux reds, though the distinct Provencal soil comes through. What makes this family stand apart even more is that for the quality and expression these wines bring to the table, the value is unparalleled. The family also grows a plethora of wonderful fruits and vegetables and makes extra virgin olive oils from their certified organic farm in the south of France.
This red blend easily reminds you of the Rhone style with its Grenache and Syrah, but with the additions of the Provencal Carignan and Cabernet Sauvignon. The vines grow at 500 meters in the shadows of Les Alpilles, also known as the baby Alps. The wine ages in tank and older barrels. It is very much their signature wine.
