A France Wine Success Story ...
...ROBERT PARKER gives 89 Points to The Bourgeois Family Cuvée Stéphi from Domaine de la Serre:
"The Bourgeois Family 2007 Grenache-Syrah Cuvée Stéphi is made by Nicolas Baptiste of the Domaine de la Serre
in Maury. This wine serves as an excellent example of the richness, flavor interest, and terrific value that can accrue to an inexpensive, tank-rendered wine from Roussillon. Aromas of blackberry, cassis, toasted pecan, cocoa powder, herbal scrub and roasted meats (...), delightful fresh fruit edge."
Our enthousiastic Gaillac producer Jérôme Bézios, from Château Palvié
, just received a very promising "COUP DE COEUR"
along with 2 STARS
from the Hachette Guide for his "Les Secrets de Châteaux Palvié"
2006. His second vineyard, Domaine de la Croix des Marchands was also prized with 2 STARS for its fantastic sparkling wine "Méthode Gaillacoise" 2006 (demi-sec).
Our Burgundy producer, Domaine Debray was distinguished as well with 1 STAR for its Crémant de Bourgogne (sparkling) 2007 and, St Aubin 2007 and St Romain 2007.
