Wine of the Weekend

Cellier des Dauphins Prestige Red and White Méditerranée IGP 250ml

The celebrations of the season are beginning to happen and we’re not finished our shopping yet! Luckily, we have a go-to gift that is just right for a few wine-friends on our list, some of our co-workers, and to help stuff most of the stockings at home – Cellier des Dauphins minis! These 250ml bottles of red and white wines are perfect to give individually or as a pair. Hopefully they check off as many names on your list as they do on ours!

Tasting Notes: The red’s rich blend of Grenache and Syrah creates fleshy red and black berry notes with warm spices and a seductively smooth texture. The white pops with flavours of golden apple, yellow plum and floral notes, delivered with refreshing acidity from the blend of white Grenache, Viognier, Marsanne and Roussanne grapes.

Enjoy With: Charcuterie, pizza, and grilled red meats for the red, while the white is a perfect match for starters, seafood, fresh salads, fish dishes and poultry.

Style: A dry, fruity, medium-bodied red wine and a juicy, medium-bodied dry white.

Terroir/Region: The Méditerranée IGP region of France incorporates a large area of the country’s southeast coast including Provence and parts of the Rhône Valley. The region is known for strong sun, stony hillsides, and a powerful wind called the ‘Mistral’. This wind can be strong enough to knock you over, but it also helps growers by circulating air, lowering the risk of vine issues like molds or pest problems.

Producer: Cellier des Dauphins unites 13 wine co-operatives expressing the south of France’s convivial art de vivre. A bold spirit and sense of solidarity guides the farmers and winemakers of Cellier des Dauphins as they strive to raise quality from vine to glass.
