Les Beaux Galets Red Blend

Les Beaux Galets Red Blend

Sold Out

The Carcassonne region to the east of the Languedoc-Roussillon is a beautiful patchwork of vineyards and medieval architecture and dotted with small wine appellations that are appreciated by French wine "geeks" around the world:  Minervois, St. Chinian, Fitou, Cabardes, Corbieres. It is a region of refined red wines at surprisingly low prices relative to their quality and pedigree.

Carignan is a very old variety and one of the true workhorse red grapes of the western Mediterranean.  Grenache may be best known for its noble presence in the Rhone wines of France, though it is becoming increasingly popular, and therefore being more commonly planted, worldwide.  Cinsault thrives in hot, windy areas and is often used in the famous rose wines of Provence.

Beaux Galets rouge brings this trio together in a delightful ruby red wine that is fun and elegant, and thus a real surprise at the price.  Red fruits on the nose are followed by flavors of blackberry and slightly spicy currants.  Try any of your own versions of the Languedoc-Roussillon foods that the French eat with wine like this: cured meats and sausages, pate, grilled meats, and game birds.  Any medium-rich cheese will also work well.  For everyday simplicity, try it with a grilled sausage and cheese sandwich and your favorite game on TV.
