Dear Enotecans,

Boy have we found a deal for you.  This is a nice French quaffer that normally sells about $9-10 for a 750ml, the normal bottle of wine size.  This is a special deal from the importer right now for $8.99 retail for a Magnum, or 1.5L, double bottle size.  What’s more, a case is only 6 bottles, so if you are a Wine of the Month Club Subscriber you can get the case price on only 6 bottles!  Order 2 cases (12 bottles) and you’re still under $100 with tax.  Worth stocking up on!

Wine Reminders:

This is an urgent offer, the importer is has a limited supply available at this great price, and when it’s gone it’s gone.  The sooner we hear from you the more likely we can fill your order.  Place your order for the maximum you are willing to buy, and when the wine arrives (expected in 2 weeks) we will fill orders on a first-come, first-served basis, based on the timestamp of the Online Order.

(Ventoux, France)

We enjoy this wine, especially when the weather warms up.  Open it up and let it decant for a little bit, it’s authentic French wine. It’s not too heavy, not too light, plenty of ripe fruit flavors, spicy notes and low tannins, so you don’t get that bite on the palate.  At this price it’s easy to open up a bottle, put some in your spaghetti sauce, and feel good about drinking the rest!

ETA: This wine is NOT in stock yet.  Expected in 2 weeks.  Pre-order to ensure availability.

What the Experts Say

The 2009 La Vieille Ferme Cotes du Ventoux red, which, like the white is aged totally in tank, is composed of 50% Grenache and the rest other grapes such as Carignan, Cinsault, and Syrah. It offers copious aromas of cherry fruit intermixed with peppery, spicy garrigue notes. A surprisingly flavorful, easygoing red, it provides tremendous relief to the beleaguered consumer looking for good quality at the $10 price point (750ml bottle).

~Wine Advocate

Bright ruby. Lively red fruits and spices on the nose and in the mouth. Light-bodied and a bit jammy but shows good energy and clarity. Finishes clean and brisk, with lingering bitterness and a touch of cracked pepper. This wine’s quality is most impressive.

More about La Vieille Ferme

La Vieille Ferme means “The Old Farm” in french.

Jean Pierre Perrin established La Vieille Ferme over 35 years ago, when he chose to produce an inexpensive, straightfor­ward Rhône wine to sell by direct mail to French wine lov­ers. He used the same grape varieties in similar proportions to those planted at the family’s Château de Beaucastel, in a similar vinification process. The result was an immediate success in France, a wine of character and style in keeping with its Beaucastel heritage.

Situation :

The vineyards are located on the slopes of Mont Ventoux. The altitude offers freshness, which provides a good acidity level to the grapes. The wine is therefore fresh, fruity and well balanced.

Terroir :

This varies according to altitude but consists for the most part of deposits left around the base of the chalky Mont Ventoux by the seas of the Tertiary period. Red Mediterranean soils blend with chalk debris and round stones.

Grapes: Carignan , Cinsault , Grenache , Syrah

Process:

This is adapted to suit each wine, grape variety and producer. Nearly all the grapes are lightly crushed and fermented in cement vats of 150 and 300 hectolitres. The fermentation is classic and extended. The wine is kept in both vats and large oak barrels for ten months, then bottled in July.

Tasting Notes:

Colour: deep cherry red.

Nose: ripe fruit, rich and spicy.

Palate: red fruit (blackcurrant and blackberry), spice with a fresh finish.

ETA: This wine is NOT in stock yet.  Expected in 2 weeks.  Pre-order to ensure availability.
