The Cauvin family of Chateau la Colombiere have, with their "Cuvée Vinum," brought forward an elegant and balanced representation both of Négrette and of their terroir, showcasing firm purple fruit, elegant earthy mineral, dill, and vigorous spice which perfectly complements the wine's medium body and solid frame.

Serving Suggestion: Cassoulet with pork shoulder, sausage, and bacon. Roasted cornish hen with thyme rosemary, and Sage.

2016 Fronton Rouge "Coste Rouge" (Colombière, Chateau La)

Chateau La Colombiere, Fronton Rouge "Coste Rouge", Southwest, France 2016

{biodynamic} 100% Négrette

EXOTIC, EARTHY & PEPPERY. BLACKBERRY & VIOLETS

This is Diane & Philippe Cauvin's pure Negrette grape cuvee from a single parcel of vineyard with iron rich soils of pebbles, gravel and sand. The distinctive soil gives the wine a softer but more intense flavor of the Negrette grape, almost heightening its characteristics. This is the most pure expression of wine from Fronton, a standard by which others are measured!

Serving Suggestions: Cassoulet, the bean, pork, duck and sausage casserole of southwest France is a classic pairing, since they originate in the same region.

BLACKBERRY & RIPE CRANBERRY, PEPPERY MINERAL & SWEET HERBS

The "Façon Puzzle" from La Colombière, an estate with six centuries of rich history, presents the region's Négrette grape in the starring role with support from Syrah.

Serving Suggestion: Braised turkey legs w/ coriander & cardamom w/ boiled fingerling potatoes & dill. Autumn root vegetable terrine w/ Yukon Gold, yams, & grated raclette.
