Wine Critic Reviews:

The 2007 Cotes du Roussillon Visitare Interiore Terrae is utterly compelling. Made from the same blend, the greatness of this vintage is confirmed in this beautiful 2007. It boasts a saturated ruby/purple color as well as an extraordinary bouquet of smoked duck, roasted Provencal herbs, black cherry liqueur, cassis, licorice, and truffle. Incredible density, a voluptuous texture, and remarkable concentration mark this fresh, lively, mouthfilling wine that should age effortlessly for 20-25 years. Robert Parker

Country France: Words fail us when trying to adequately portray France's place in the world of wine. It's downright impossible to imagine what wine would feel and taste like had it not been for France's many, many viticultural pioneers. Fine wine is the blood of France's vigorously beating heart, and it finds itself in many aspects of French culture. With a viticultural history that dates all the way back to the 6th century BC, France now enjoys its position as the most famous and reputable wine region on the planet. If you have a burning passion for masterfully crafted, mouth-watering, mind-expanding wines, then regular visits to France are probably already in your schedule, and for a good reason.
Producer Chapoutier: With the beginning of its tradition in 1808, Chapoutier Hermitage has established a reputation as one of the most important wineries in the Rhone Valley. Their versatility and sheer influence are staggering, as they produce wines in a variety of appellations, with different soil compositions, and for different price ranges. Anything you can connect to the Rhone Valley has been perfected by Chapoutier Hermitage, and they've added their personal touches and unique decisions into the mix. Still, you can expect the wines to be of exceptionally high quality, with a cosmic depth of flavor and a texture as intricate as finely woven tapestries of old. Naturally, you may wish to collect these wines since their versatility and variety leave a lot of room for personal expression, and they can perform admirably in any scenario.

Region Languedoc: Located in southern France, Languedoc is one of the largest wine regions in this country and it covers the land between the region of Provence and the Spanish border. It's no wonder over a third of French wines are made right here. Languedoc has a long history that dates back to ancient Greeks, which makes it one of the oldest wine regions in France, too. Today, Languedoc wines are considered to be some of the highest-quality wines in the world that successfully keep the tradition alive while fulfilling the demands of the international market. Languedoc's rich offer has any wine you could ever think of. From more rustic, traditionally made wines to those with more contemporary characteristics, any wine enthusiast could find a perfect bottle for themselves. Some of the most delightful whites are made of Chardonnay, but other varieties such as Mauzac or Chenin blanc are also cultivated in this region. Among commonly used red varieties you could find Syrah, Carignan, Grenache, and plenty of others. Some of them feature an enjoyable nutty taste, while others are marvelously sweet. Of course, if you happen to find yourself in Languedoc, you shouldn't leave until you have a glass of Cremant de Limoux - a sophisticated sparkling wine typical for this exceptional region.
Type of Wine Rhone (Other): Rhone wines come from southern France, where a wide variety of grapes are cultivated. Some of the most commonly used varietals within this region are Syrah, Grenache Noir, Carignan, and Cinsaut for red wines, while white blends are typically based on Marsanne, Roussanne, Bourboulenc, Carignan Blanc, Grenache Blanc and others.
Varietal Proprietary Blend: There's a level of mystery and intrigue when it comes to drinking a wine for which you're not fully informed about, and if that sounds like a thrilling idea to you, then you're probably already interested in proprietary blends. While the concept doesn't have a legal definition, it is used to describe blends whose components aren't disclosed by the producer. In many cases, the wine tends to be a Bordeaux-inspired blend, but this isn't always the case.
