Domaine la Croix des Marchands Vieilles Vignes
About This Wine:
The village of Montans was a crossroad for the pottery trade from Roman times. It was also an important area for wine production, and the wine amphoras produced in the area (and presumably filled with local wine) have been found as far away as Northern Scotland and Southern Spain. The village is part of the Gaillac AOC in the Languedoc. Jerome Bézios produces wines under two labels: Domaine la Croix des Marchands, a tribute to the traveling merchants of the past, and Château Palvié, a subsection of the property named for the family that owned the property before the French Revolution. First Vine is the first importer to bring M. Bézios’s wines to the U.S.

The Gaillac region of France produces some Bordeaux-style wines, and also wines with local varietals, some of which have been grown for centuries. M. Bézios focuses on the best of the locals. The AOC Gaillac Vieilles Vignes Rouge 2006 is equal parts Syrah and Braucol. Braucol provides the structure and some of the earthier flavors, while Syrah provides color, fruit flavors, and spice. It's aged in oak but not too much, resulting in a rich, elegant wine that's perfect for drinking by itself or with food. M. Bézios recommends decanting the wine for maximum aroma.
