"Knockout Value" - Unbelievable Quality for under $10
Just when you thought you’ve seen it all. They call Southern France the "Final Frontier" of the wine world, and we can’t help but agree: some of the most fascinating, unique, and flat-out delicious reds and whites are coming from the Southern Rhone, Languedoc, and Roussillon.
Oh, and they just happen to be CRAZY VALUES as well!
"The 2012 Château Pesquié Côtes du Ventoux Le Paradou is an awesome value! Made from 100% Grenache (75-year-old vines) and aged 7 months in concrete tank, it offers up a naked expression of Grenache with meaty black cherry, pepper, dried Provencal herbs, and earth all soaring from the glass. Medium to full-bodied, brilliantly pure, and fresh, it has enough tannin to allow it to evolve gracefully for 3-4 years. It’s a knockout value and this crowd pleaser should not be missed!...90." Jeb Dunnuck, Rhone Report 12/12.
One of his last-reviewed wines before joining the Wine Advocate, Jeb Dunnuck clearly loved this wine on its own. But when you factor in the price, then you realize what has him (and the rest of us!) so excited!
$9.50 per bottle!
In stock now but not for long, this is one of those "drink now and later" wines you grab by the case without any regrets! Balanced and drinking beautifully in this warm weather and ideal as it starts to get cooler, this is one you won’t want to miss!
We’ve said enough! Go grab your Paradou!
All My Best
