A CHARMING RED FROM A LUMINARY WINEMAKER FOR UNDER $20!
“After we all tasted the 2015 Mas Las Cabes Cotes du Roussillon, it was unanimously agreed we had to bring it in. The value for this stellar, mouth-watering Languedoc-Roussillon red is undeniable, and we’re lucky enough to be one of the first in the country to receive this wine, before it’s even had a chance to be reviewed. Trust me, this is a no-brainer; ripe, luscious fruit with a fresh, complex palate. Be the first to pick some up and fire up that BBQ!” –Jim Knight, The Wine House
“Jean Gardies has been a pioneer and luminary of biodynamic wines in the Languedoc-Roussillon since the 1990’s. Coming from stressed old vine plantings, the wines from Mas Las Cabes are fresh while structured, elegant while powerful and at the bottom of the glass downright sexy. And on top of that, one of the best values coming from the old wine world.” –Jerome Brenot, Vance-Erickson Wine Brokers
