Comte de Roche “Noble Tradition”, Coteaux du Languedoc – bold
This fantastic GSM (Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre) blend is bold and rich with a hint of spice and nice acidity that goes equally great with cheese/hors d’oeuvres and with gamey meats. $18.00
Bellene “Cuvee Terrior”, Coteaux Bourguignons – delicate
“Cuvée Terroir” is a new appellation created to showcase the classic taste of the entire Burgundy region, from south (Beaujolais) to north (Côte d’Or). Maison Roche de Bellene’s Coteaux Bourguignons is a great introduction to the traditional grape varieties and winemaking style of the region. It is fresh, fruit forward, and deliciously expressive. A blend of Pinot Noir and Gamay grapes provides firm tannins, a fine structure, and a round, soft fruitiness. $18
Domaine Maby “La Forcadiere” Rose, Tavel (Rhone) – perfect for Thanksgiving

This Tavel wine has ripe berry scents and a palate of red fruit with subtle spicy undertones. $22
