At La Tour Vieille, where the mighty Pyrenees plunge into the Mediterranean, Vincent Cantié and Christine Campadieu proudly uphold a fascinating collection of nearly extinct local traditions. This is French Catalonia, and centuries of viticulture dating back to the Phoenicians have resulted in an array of unique wines: dry and sweet whites and reds, oxidative rancio wines, solera-aged marvels recalling a bygone era... Puig Ambeille is a dry red from primarily Mourvèdre and Grenache. Imagine Bandol if it were grown in Collioure’s dark, flaky schist soils—at a price that would make any Bandol blush. Don’t miss this herb-tinged, sun-and-sea-inflected rarity from these skilled Catalan artisans. –Anthony Lynch
