Best Selling French Bistro Wines On Sale (2 for $13)

We love these little wines and sell the stew out of them all year long - and we are thrilled to be able to offer them at this very special price! Stock up!!

2016 Cuvée Jean-Paul Blanc: The rolling hills between the scattered medieval towns and villages of Gascony are predominately white wine country. Designated Pays de Gascogne in 1982, it was to here that Boutinot was drawn to source his white wines from the locally grown Colombard and Ugni Blanc grape varieties. Vines are trained using the Guyot system and vigorous grape selection is used to capture the fresh aromatics and flavour of this Blanc de Blancs from the southwest province of Gascony.  Tasting Note The deliciously fresh and aromatic nose has intense citrus and pear notes. A soft palate with a delicate floral character. **********************************************************  2016 Cuvée Jean-Paul Rouge: The southern Rhone valley is swathed in warm sunny vineyards and peppered with hilltop stone-hewn villages on its rocky outcrops. Outside of the delimited areas of the famous village appellations, the wine the local vignerons make and enjoy with their friends in the village cafes and bistros is Pays de Vaucluse. Cuvée Jean Paul Rouge is made predominantly from a blend of Grenache and Syrah from the Vin de Pays de Vaucluse. Traditional Rhone-based viticulture is used with part manual/part machine harvest. Tasting Note A classic Rhone red; friendly and warming leafy, autumnal aromas and an ample, baked fruit palate. A delicious, uncomplicated, soft, fruity and very drinkable red... yet serious enough to accompany food.
