Light & Fruity

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Winemaker's Notes

Nature surrounds the village, forests and fruit trees, intermingled with vines which paint a varying landscape of changing colors. The name L'Argile translates to "clay," in reference to the soil type for this wine.

Critical Acclaim

"From his organic/biodynamically farmed vineyard, this blend of 75% Grenache, 15% Syrah, and the rest Carignan and Cinsault, is outrageously delicious. Aged 18 months in oak tank and neutral oak, the wine has a dense purple color and a wonderfully sweet nose of acacia flowers, lavender, roasted meats, black raspberries and creme de cassis. Superb fruit on the attack follows through on the mid-palate and finish. Beautifully textured, pure, and opulent, this is a stunning wine from a great vintage that has just been released. Drink it over the next 7-8 years."

One of the best values I have found in years. Exception, long finish. Best paired with gamy meals or earthy cheeses. I quickly bought the last six bottles and intend on holding onto them for a couple years to mature further.

This wine was smooth but not as flavorful as I expected. We decanted for a couple hours and that did improve it. We actually thought it did better with the meal we paired it with (Beef Wellington)than by itself.
