Amongst both wine professionals and consumers, there are a couple importer names that jump out as a stamp of quality… think Kermit Lynch and Rosenthal. Over the last year, we have discovered a new little importer with the focus being on small production wines from the South of France: Patrick Allen Selections. Chances are if you have been on this email list for any length of time, you’ve heard us freak out about the wines of Jerome Despesse, a tiny producer in Cornas whose Syrah rivals that of Thierry Allemand at a fraction of the cost. Patrick Allen Selections, who has consistently impressed us with both the cost and the quality of their wines, is also responsible for bringing in these beautiful wines by Clos del Rey. Based in the appellation of Maury, this appellation is known for its production of Vin Doux Natural, but Clos del Rey makes dry red wines, and makes them very well. In an area of France known for blending, it is unusual to see single varietal bottlings, but after drinking several bottles of this wine, I can tell you that this gamble paid off handsomely. Some of the Carignan vines are in excess of 130 years old, and you can taste it in the inky complexity of this wine. This wine shows intense flavors of blackberry, raspberry, sandalwood, pepper, and a hint of red flowers.
