Domaine de Boissan Cuvee du Sommelier
In the Southern stretches of the Rhône, Christian and Cathy Bonfils, a husband and wife winemaking team with family roots both in the Rhône as well as Burgundy, are producing wonderful wines in the Village of Sablet. This little cuvée is Cathy's undertaking as she experiments with natural wine production, adding no sulfites after fermentation. A beautiful, bright expression of Grenache, this has wonderful aromas of red cherry and delicate notes of tobacco and smokey herbs. Sharp, bright cherry and cranberry flavors are complemented by the finesse of the wine. It's wonderfully light in texture and could benefit from a slight chill. A perfect spring red, this wine will accompany charcuterie and lamb chops quite nicely.
