Domaine Philemon 'Croix de la Bouscarie' Duras Gaillac, France 2019Regular price $15.00
You’ll probably recognize this producer’s aesthetic once you see the bottle, or when you taste the wine for that matter! We carry several other Dom. Philemon wines, an organic family farm in Southwest France that specializes in indigenous varietals, low-intervention winemaking, and whose labels could be used as wine Scrabble tiles.
This 100% Duras is historically one of our favorites, though it hasn’t been seen in the states for several years. Tasting it again was like running into an old friend: violets, Mediterranean herbs like sage and fennel, robust berry fruit and a peppery finish. We promise, you’ve never had anything quite like it.
Food Ideas: Creamy mushroom pasta or soup, hearty stew, rack of lamb, lentils with roasted red peppers, leeks and potatoes
