There is nothing worse than buying a super expensive wine, sitting on it to let it “age” for a few years, and then when you open it the wine is terrible.
On the flip side of that coin, I absolutely love when some $20-$30 wines just keep getting better with age, and really outperform their price point. 2004 Mas Doix Salanques is still one of those wines for me. I bought it for $25 per bottle and almost 20 years later the wine is still absolutely crazy delicious.
The wine we have for you today will be one of those superstars, in my humble opinion.
At one of the world’s largest wine trade shows in Paris back in February we tasted through hundreds and hundreds of wines over several days (someone has to do it 😂).
We found Domaine des Florets “Alliance”, a Grenache and Syrah blend from Gigondas, at a random tasting station, and honestly after sharing 3 bottles with different friends over the last few days, I think it may be the best of the best we bought on that trip.
I tasted this wine next to 2010 Marcoux Vieilles Vignes Chateauneuf du Pape last week (and that Marcoux was one of my all timers and nearly 5x the price of this wine) and I think the Alliance was better.
The history of this estate I can’t really figure out. As far as I can tell this guy Jérôme Rathle bought the estate in 2021 after making a small fortune in sustainability services, and completely revamped the whole operation. Apparently he knows how to make wine as well, because his first attempt out of the gate is insane.
As with any small operation - the only issue is getting your hands on lots of product. We liked this wine a lot, and after several weeks of back and forth, we bought 30% of this man’s entire production…but that is only 280 cases of wine.
I honestly think anyone who drinks red wine will love this stuff, and we could not be more excited to bring it to you.
I’m in for 2 cases - one to drink now and one hopefully to try and age (if I can hold off). My guess is I’ll buy a third right before we run out, just so I have a nice stash 😂

I know what I'm drinking tonight!
