In the spirit of even hotter days to come, and the barbecues that follow, we have put together two samplers: one featuring all reds, the other without. You can be confident that the red version includes options––whether its the dark and brooding Irouléguy from Domaine Arretxea, or the smoky and firm Fumin from Feuillet––that will shine when pulled from an ice bucket and paired with grilled meats like tender steaks and plump sausages. Expect an assortment of chillable earthy reds that work with lighter fare too, like skewered fish brochettes and herby grain salads.

Kermit once said...
For the wines that I buy I insist that the winemaker leave them whole, intact. I go into the cellars now and select specific barrels or cuvées, and I request that they be bottled without stripping them with filters or other devices. This means that many of our wines will arrive with a smudge of sediment and will throw a more important deposit as time goes by, It also means the wine will taste better.
