Wines by the glass.

Domaine de Sulauze 2015 Cochon Rouge

Coteaux d’Aix-en-Provence

As the name suggests, the whole hog here. A little bit of everything and 100% delicious. Press juice from the Pomponette rosé with additions of just about everything else. Fermented and raised in stainless steel tank and bottled in the spring following the vintage without SO2.

Domaine de Sulauze 2014 Les Amis Syrah

Coteaux d’Aix-en-Provence

85% Syrah (Serine, small berry ancient Syrah), 15% Grenache Noir. Serine planted from a selection massale cuttings of Côte Rôtie. It has an excellent nose of fresh berries, stalks, white pepper and earth. It is bright and juicy in the mouth. Fruit flavours are front and centre and tannins are gentle. There’s crisp acidity to the finish. A delicious dry red to slurp down over the next couple of years.

Domaine Tempier 2016 Classique

Bandol

Long the driving force of the Bandol appellation, Tempier has entered a new phase in its evolution with the appointment of Daniel Ravier as winemaker. Daniel comes to the Domaine with extensive experience in the
Bandol region. The Domaine, owned by the Tempier family since 1834, is focusing on producing exceptional wines with a great ageing potential.

La Suffrene 2015 Bandol Blanc

Bandol

Domaine La Suffrene is a family estate that has been passed through the family for generations. In a pretty light golden robe, clear and brilliant, this Bandol has a very fine nose with notes of candied citrus, fresh almond, accompanied by a touch of brioche bread. The palate is full-bodied, fresh, with a nice vanilla side and a beautiful aromatic persistence. South in the bottle!

La Suffrene 2015 Bandol Rouge

Bandol

Domaine La Suffrene is a family estate that has been passed through the family for generations. This full-bodied, savoury red is a blend of predominantly Mourvedre with the addition of Grenache Noir, Carignan and Cinsault. The wine is aged in oak vats for 18 months before release and marries perfectly with rich meat dishes. A deep, almost opaque purple in colour. Scents of prunes, blueberries and woodsmoke. The palate is dry and savoury with well integrated tannins that soften to produce a subtle yet lingering finish.

La Suffrene 2017 Bandol Rose

Bandol

Domaine La Suffrene is a family estate that has been passed through the family for generations.

Pale yet not evanescent pink, with firmly stated, forthright aromas in which the power of Bandol Mourvedre meets the grace and subtlety of Grenache and Cinsaut: a rose of place and character. On the palate, the wine deftly combines the drinkability we all look for in rose with a detaining gastronomic force and depth, so this is certainly a rose for the table and for summer gastronomy.

Domaine de Rimauresq Côtes de Provence Cru Classé Rose 2017

Cotes de Provence

Rimauresq is named for the river Real Mauresque that traverses the domaine. This 60 hectare property was reestablished in 1882 after the phylloxera epidemic devastated the region. Domaine de Rimauresq was also one of the original fourteen Cru Classé producers that received historical Cru designation even before the appellation board named Cotes de Provence as an AOC. The nose gives white peach, melon and raspberry scents which are enlivened by a jolt of orange zest and a dusty mineral flourish. Supple and focused on the palate, offering juicy strawberry, nectarine and orange flavors that tighten up slowly with aeration. Finishes long and sappy, displaying very good clarity and a resonating mineral note.

Clos Sainte Magdeleine 2017 Cassis Blanc

Cassis

Organic in the vineyards, the abundant white limestone and marine influence brings a nervous tension and a coastal salinity, while lovely Mediterranean scents of anise, yellow flowers, citrus, peach—are delivered with newfound focus and precision. The pinpoint, sea-breeze finish and total finesse throughout are truly exceptional among Provençal whites. You’ll want to try the 2017 to see how the unique terroir of the tiny Cassis appellation is glimmering like never before. A Blend of 40% Marsanne, 30% Ugni blanc, 25% Clairette, 5% Bourboulenc. – Anthony Lynch

Clos Sainte Magdeleine 2017 Cassis Rose

Cassis

Made from Provençal staples Grenache, Cinsault and Mourvèdre. This wine has delicate red–berry aromas and a savoury, dry finish. It too has a definite affinity for seafood – scallops, langoustines or a simple dressed fish dish would suffice.
