2017 L’Acote Cotes de Province Rose

Provence, France

70% Grenache, 20 % Syrah & 10% Cinsault

With a pale pink coulor, the nose reveals a basket of fruits composed of apricot, peach, grapefruit, mango and litchi.

This aromatic expression leaves room for an ample clean mouth feel, with persistent floral flavours.

BTG $6.50 Retail $11.99

2017 Domaine Santa Giullietta Corse Vermentino

Corsica, France

A smooth, warm style of wine, this offers ripe apple and white-fruit flavors. It is floral, perfumed as so often with Vermentino with open fruitiness and a fresh, aromatic aftertaste. 88 Pts Wine Enthusiast

BTG $7.25  Retail $15.99

2016 Domaine de Pallus Chinon Rouge “Messanges”

Loire Valley, France

Cabernet Franc

A very fresh style, with high-pitched red currant and bitter cherry notes, lined with a mouthwatering iron streak. Bright savory and floral accents add lift on the finish. Very pure. 90 Pts Wine Spectator

BTG $8.25 Retail $19.99

2016 Chave Mon Couer Cotes Du Rhone

Rhone Valley, France

50% Grenache, 50% Syrah

A cut above most Côtes-du-Rhônes in structure and complexity. Lurid ruby. Ripe cherries and red berry liqueur on the deeply perfumed, spicetinged nose. Shows impressive power and breadth on the palate, offering rich black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors complicated by hints of lavender and peppery spices. The smooth, gently tannic finish delivers solid punch and repeating red berry and floral notes. 91 Pts Vinous, 91 Pts Wine Advocate, 91 Pts James Suckling

BTG $9.00   Retail 22.99

2014 Chateau Segur de Cabanac

St Estephe, Bordeaux, France

60% Cabernet, 40 % Merlot

Violet color. Earthy, fruity aromas and flavors of cocoa-dusted berries, chocolate mint and graham crackers, praline, and fallen tree in a forest with a satiny, vibrant, fruity medium-to-full body and a smooth, appealing, medium-length finish with impressions of cassis tart a la mode, whole nuts, and earth with dusty, leafy tannins and moderate oak flavor. A rich, savory St. Estèphe with great poise and structure. 94 Pts Tastings.com , 92 Pts International Wine Reports

BTG $14.00 Retail $37.99
