Cabalié Vieilles Vignes 2018

Hervé Sabardiel, maker of our popular Cabalié, is so grateful for its success, he’s crafted a special, old-vine version to delight its fans. Made in the style that bolstered Roman soldiers 2,000 years ago, it’s ultra rich and boasts a top gold medal.

92-Point Rhône Blockbuster

Château Lestours Clocher 2015

Châteauneuf is more famous and commands the highest prices, but savvy fans know neighboring Vacqueyras produces equally fabulous (and more wallet-friendly) reds. This “sexy and deeply perfumed” example from the historic Arnoux clan proves the point.
