l'Envolee Rosé 2020 $28 A new rosé! This one is made with a a little help from Olivier's friends. It's a direct press of Syrah from David Teyssier at Domaine de Gressac in Provence along with some Grenache and Cinsault from his neighbor in Argelliers Stephane Gros bottled with almost no sulfur (2g/hl for our fellow nerds). This once again highlights Olivier's masterful touch with rosé. A patio pounder of the highest order, but not in a forgettable pushover way. Juicy, expressive and fun. PS, we should be getting the latest addition of Deferlante later in the season.
Ronds Noir 2019 $33 This is Olivier's friendly red blend of Syrah, Carignan and Cinsault all co-fermented whole cluster for 7 days before pressing off to tank, where it ages for a few months on the lees, then gets bottled unfiltered with no sulfur added. This one still fits the juicy, expressive and fun description from above, but with a deeper core of red and purple fruit that really opens up beautifully and disappears all too quickly.
