Both of our wine selections are from Domaine du Tix (Côte de Ventoux) in Northern Provence. Nestled below the lofty MontVentoux, the Domaine du Tix occupies a breathtaking natural site among the sun-drenched stone terraces, or “restanques,” harking back to Roman times. It is no wonder that owners, Philippe Danel and Marie Pirsch, after long and senior careers in textile and fashion, fell in love with this charming estate, planted with old vines, and decided to make high quality wines.
Cuvée Doña Maria 2011
Varietal/Blend: 80% Grenache, 20% Syrah
The Cuvée Dona Maria is a dark ruby color pushing black with aromas of licorice, dust, berries and Chambord. This cuvée is 80% grenache with 20% syrah and displays the character of a huge grenache with full bodied structure and firm tannin. The wine has a big impact on the mouth with berry flavors, mineral and dusty characteristics like a Chateauneuf-du-Pape. The finish is long with a continuation of the flavors from the nose coupled with a touch of earthiness and a wave of refreshing acidity. Drink now after a decanting through 2018 with full flavored meats and aromatic and bleu cheeses.
Cuvée des Grandes Pointes Viognier 2013
The viognier is compact and restrained on the nose with hints of what lies beneath: white flowers, pear and quince. The texture of the wine in the mouth is very pleasing as it is light on the palate but nuanced in flavor with solid fruit and medium body. The finish is quite refreshing, a strong positive for viognier, with notes of pear and honeysuckle. Drink now with salads, grilled fish or cheese. A great house white.
