I feel like 90% of my week is contacting suppliers and working on getting great deals. Back in early September though I went to the wine wizards behind Colline du Bonnet and asked a favor.
This is maybe my favorite red wine in the store right now, and if we could just get one pop of wine that we could sell for $9.99, it would be absolute 🔥.
After what seemed like 4,263 e-mails back and forth working on how we can make this happen, we finally came to an agreement and now here we are.
Through Sunday. $9.99 a bottle. I can't tell you how ridiculous this is!!
The first time I tasted this 100% Grenache from Colline du Bonnet I thought it tasted like a dead ringer for one of my favorite wines of all time, Alban Grenache. I'm not kidding, not even a little bit, and just for price comparison Alban Grenache, any vintage, lowest price in the US right now is $89 per bottle 👀
So how does a wine like this get made?
For most wine people, Languedoc-Roussillon is still a monolithic expanse of undifferentiated vineyards – but, as in that cartoon with the two babies peering into their diapers, “there is a difference!” Some areas see more sea influence than mountain influence; some sites are windier, and some are decidedly hotter. Colline’s Grenache vines are baked in the sun around the town of Cébazon in eastern Languedoc, and still enjoy enough of the Mediterranean breezes to retain some acidity. The winemaking is more traditional than modern (cold soaking the grapes for two days is still new thinking) but otherwise the grapes stay on the skins in vats for at least a month; then see long aging in cement cubes. It's old school winemaking that produces extreme value results.
All I can tell you is that this is a back up the truck situation. At $9.99 I'm not going to tell you how much I'm buying as it may seem irresponsible 😂.
I know what I'm drinking tonight! Let's do this!!
