2015 Coteaux du Languedoc Rouge (Magellan, Domaine)

Domaine Magellan, Coteaux du Languedoc Rouge, Languedoc, France, 2015

{sustainable} 55% Grenache, 30% Syrah, 15% Carignan

DRIED BERRIES, ROCKS IN THE WARM SUN, DECEPTIVELY SERIOUS

Bruno Lafon comes from the family of one of the most storied estates in Burgundy, but he’s found his calling in the south of France. He moved to the Languedoc two decades ago, a move he describes as “self-liberating”. Drawn to what he calls the “new terroirs, new grape varieties, and new challenges” of France’s Mediterranean coast, he joined forces with his late sister-in-law Sylvie Legros to create Domaine Magellan. This classic red shows off what drew him to the region in the first place; friendly berry notes from Grenache meet spice and earth from Syrah and Carignan, giving us a classic expression of the sunny south.

Serving Suggestion: Slow roasted pork from the crockpot in a richly seasoned homemade mole sauce. Bacon & blue cheese bison burgers w/ charred root vegetables on the side.

2016 Grenache Blanc / Roussanne (Magellan, Domaine)

Domaine Magellan, Blanc "Le Fruit Defendu", Languedoc, France, 2016

{sustainable} 60% Grenache Blanc, 40% Rousanne

RIPE NECTARINE & TROPICAL FRUIT, ZESTY WHITE PEPPER, GENTLE TOAST

Full-bodied yet balancing its rich ripeness with healthy acidity, this impressive Eastern Languedoc offering carries itself like what would often be a more expensive Southern Rhone white. Time in oak barrels (utilized after a couple years’ service in Burgundy’s Beaune) has imbued a light toastiness that doesn’t detract from the extroverted tropicality or freshness and adds an extra dimension of luxury.

Serving Suggestion: Triggerfish w/ avocado oil & aioli w/ onion rings. Savory, twice-fried plantains & cabbage salad w/ cilantro & orange-glazed carrot ribbons.

2013 Hérault Rosé "Le Fruit Defendu" (Magellan, Domaine)

Domaine Magellan, Rosé "Le Fruit Defendu", Languedoc, France, 2013

{sustainable} 100% Cinsault

RICH CHERRY & MILDLY SPICY CURRANT. CRISP MINERALITY

Cinsault is technically not allowed at this percentage in the Languedoc, hence this wine's name: "Le Fruits Defendu" (The Forbidden Fruit). Winegrower Bruno Lafon, a transplant himself originally from Comte de Lafon in Meursault, has brought his Burgundian expertise to bear in the deep south, and the result is a surprising and delicious value. Bursting with fruit and buoyed by complex minerals and a hint of spice, this rosé is a lovely addition to our garden.

Serving Suggestion: Cold soba with snap peas, silken tofu, and ponzu. Creamy goat cheeses with fresh bread. Great by itself too.

2015 Hérault Rouge "Le Fruit Défendu" (Magellan, Domaine)

Domaine Magellan, Rouge "Le Fruit Défendu", Languedoc, France, 2014

{sustainable} 90% Cinsault, 10% Grenache

JUICY PLUM & CHERRY; SOFT, FRAGRANT SMOKINESS

Another Cinsault-based anomaly from the Languedoc, the red version of "The Forbidden Fruit" is gearing up to be our summertime staple, guzzled in vast quantities at parties and barbecues throughout the season. It's so approachable, so beautifully textured, and the fruit-to-spice ratio is just right. A fantastic wine at a frankly astounding price. A Wine Authorities exclusive!

Serving Suggestion: "One-hander" burgers and brats off the grill, eaten while standing around said grill perhaps with spatula or tongs in hand. Tiki torches a plus.
