2014 Côtes de Provence Rouge “Clos de la Procure”

Dupéré Barrera

2014 Côtes de Provence <em>Rouge</em> “Clos de la Procure” Dupéré Barrera - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant

   $19.95

This AOC lies in the heart of rural Provence, where pine forest and aromatic garrigue thrive amid a hilly landscape punctuated by scraggy limestone outcroppings. Sadly, this sun-baked terroir’s undeniable potential is rarely ever fully realized: technological winemaking reigns in these parts, and many fine vineyard sites are wasted to the production of ultra-pale, insipid rosés  bound for consumption by unsuspecting tourists on the nearby Côte d’Azur. This red, then, represents a delicious exception: old vines of organically farmed Mourvèdre, Grenache, Syrah, Carignan, and Cinsault are foot-stomped and naturally vinified without any pumping or filtration. Bandol might want to look over its shoulder.  –Anthony Lynch
