"Readers that like full-bodied, textured wines that always shows a sense of elegance and purity need to get on this estate’s bandwagon." - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The team at JJ Buckley is excited to be able to offer you an exclusive chance to grab one of the Roussillon’s top Syrahs, the ‘Infiniment de L’Ou.’ Organically farmed, Chateau de L’Ou is one of the Wine Advocate’s “favorite estates in the Roussillon” and their 2012 vintage was exceptional; it's been described by Jeb Dunnuck as “jaw-dropping good” and we couldn’t agree more. This is one to grab by the case and show your New World drinking friends why France is still on top!
It’s no secret that Southern France offers some of the best value wines in the world, and these days the Côtes Catalanes is a cut above the rest. From the gentle eastern foothills of the Pyrenees sloping towards the Mediterranean, this subzone of the Languedoc-Roussillon is a stellar source for full throttled reds that are easily equal to those in the Southern Rhone going for double and triple the price! Leading the pack is Chateau de L’Ou and their gloriously rich yet complex expressions of Syrah. The ‘Infiniment de L’Ou’ is both a vineyard and a barrel select cuvee, overflowing with black fruits, spice, and garrigue, all wrapped up in a seamless but muscular tannic structure.
With considerable praise from noted Rhone expert Jeb Dunnuck, he has described the ‘Infiniment’ as the most “broad, expansive and supple” of L’Ou’s cuvees and it will impress today and for the next ten years.You won’t find this superlative 2012 Roussillon anywhere else, and at 35% off our regular price, it is a mind-bending value at $25.94! Cheers!
