2009 Les Baux de Provence Rouge “Cornaline”

Domaine Hauvette

2009 Les Baux de Provence <i>Rouge</i> “Cornaline” Domaine Hauvette - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant

   $47.00

In the foothills of the Alpilles mountain range, Dominique Hauvette inhabits a hidden treasure of Provence, at least in terms of wine: the area’s Roman ruins and stunning scenery have made it a top destination for tourists, artists, and countless others. This impressive rocky formation—a sort of miniature Alps—is also home to the Baux de Provence appellation, a small but fascinating zone characterized by high-altitude limestone vineyards, pervasive mistral, and abundant garrigue. A pioneer of biodynamic viticulture and natural winemaking, Dominique crafts white, rosé, and red wines that express the wild, stony nature of the Alpilles with fine touch and layers of complex flavor. Cornaline represents her most structured, age-worthy red. This Grenache, Syrah, and Cabernet Sauvignon blend provides a dense, savory mouthful of Provençal herbs, black fruit, and dusty, chewy tannins. Delicious already, this classic vintage has a striking freshness that suggests serious aging potential. –Anthony Lynch
