Only 135 cases of this wine were produced - and we bought every last one of them :) Now we're down to our last 20.

What made this one so special?
 
We met with Nicolas Vellas of Domaine Vellas in early March in NYC (right before things went off the rails) to taste some of his new wines, and without question the most interesting one was L’Oeil du Tigre or “Tiger Eye”
 
Nero Antica is not a grape you’ve heard of. Frankly, it’s not a grape we've heard of either, and the really smart people who’ve made it their life’s work (Jose Vouillamoz, particularly) haven't anything to offer other than rumors as well. But this 4th generation Languedoc producer apparently rescued or found this grape in their vineyards and brought a small group of the plants back to life. It is the only planting of Nero Antica that we can confirm (and we've done a significant amount of searching!)
 
This varietal makes absolutely gigantic wine and the yields on these old vines are very low, so in this case it is blended with Grenache to create a more nuanced balance. Make no mistake though, this wine is huge.
 
This is the first time Vellas has produced this wine, and we bought the entire production of it - all 135 cases :)
 
For the inaugural bottling they chose a collectors bottle (picture below) and all bottles are hand waxed.

So if you're like me and looking for something delicious, exciting and unique - this is certainly on the "do not miss" list.

TGIF!
