We, at Top Ten Liquors, have been busy this year seeking out original wines that we can offer to our customers. We’ve put in many miles, and there will be many more, to find you the best wines at the best values in the vast world of wine. The wines we are featuring this week are just a few of the great liquids we have found.

Jeff Carrel is making extraordinary wines in his newly remodeled cellar in Saint-Laurent de la Cabrerisse. Old vines growing on craggy mountaintop vineyards create wines of delicious integrity. We will bring in more of Jeff’s wines soon. Check out this video of some of the vineyards he sources fruit from.

The Anne de Joyeuse Cooperative in Limoux has delivered to us two prototypical bistro wines. These are easy pairs with all your summer cuisine. They both have become staples at my house as has the 4 Vent Côtes du Rhône made from vineyards surrounding Tavel. Come and try these wines on Saturday from 1 PM to 4 PM at all of our locations.

Domaine Sous de la Montagne Vin de Altitude Cote Roussillon 2016
Domaine-Sous-la-Montagne-c5516d13
This beautiful wine garnered 91 points from The Wine Advocate’s Jeb Dunnuck! The core of the blend is mountaintop grown, 89-year-old Carignan vines. The rest of the blend consists of older vine Grenache and Syrah. It is concentrated with unbelievable color, yet elegant and downright juicy due to the lack of oak aging. It boasts rich black cherry flavors as well as classic Roussillon garrigue (wild herb flavors and aromas). I am a huge fan of Jeff Carrel and authentic southern French wines!

Sainte-Anne de Joyeuse Pinot Noir Vin de Pays 2016
Sainte Anne Pinot Noir Fresh, fruity, and showing classic Pinot Noir characters, this is the perfect house Pinot Noir. Red cherry and raspberry with soft tannins, crisp acidity. Reasonably structured, rich, and full-bodied, this is another clear winner!

Sainte-Anne de Joyeuse Chardonnay Vin de Pays 2017
Sainte Anne Chardonnay
If you are looking for a refreshing, unoaked Chardonnay for summer quaffing and/or patio pounding (it’s a technical term), THIS IS IT! Flavors of apples, pear, and melon, it’s crisp and bright. An unbeatable value from the Anne de Joyeuse cooperative in southern France’s Limoux region.

4 Vents (keht-rah vahnt) Côtes-du-Rhône 2017
BACK - CDR 4 VENTS 2016 - 3.74 in W x 2.95 in H
“4 Vents” translates to 4 Winds in English. This is my new house red! 50% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 20% Carignan and 10% Mourvedre. It has fruit, spice, and moderate to soft tannins. Just get it in your glass and enjoy. The style of this wine is one where the winemaker gives a nod to traditional French preferences but also has the American palate in mind.
Regular Price $12.99
