Weekly Wine Deal
Every week (or so) David will select a wine that he’s especially excited about. If you’d like to purchase this week’s deal, please get in touch:
Tour Boisee “Plantation 1905” 2011 $15 – This organic winery is located in Minverois in Southern France near the Rhone valley. This wine comes from a single vineyard planted in 1905, with 23 different grape varieties! Some of them are familiar like Grenche and Carignan, but some are obscure, and the winery can’t even figure out what 4 of them are. Long story short, here’s a wine made from incredibly old vines with a big field blend of grapes that’s absolutely delightful. Even more so when you consider the price!
For those of you that like flavor descriptors this wine was vibrant and spicy with lots of red fruit and pomegranate tones. Super fascinating while being very drinkable. Pick some up for parties or dinner as its great with food or on its own.
