2017 Domaine de 3 Cellier Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc “Insolente”
On Sale $32.99
Pale gold. Ripe orchard and pit fruits on the deeply perfumed nose, which picks up hints of vanilla and buttered toast with air. Fleshy and broad in the mouth, offering appealingly sweet pear liqueur and peach nectar flavors and a touch of smokiness. Finishes long and smooth, featuring repeating vanilla and pear notes and a touch of refreshingly bitter citrus pith.

2017 Domaine de 3 Cellier “Le Sentiers des Terroirs,” Gigondas AOP
On Sales $24.99
Covering close to 35 acres across Chateâuneuf-du-Pape, this estate is run by the three Cellier brothers, Ludovics, Julien and Benoit. They release a number of cuvees, all of which are unique and on the pleasure bent side of things. This is a blend of 80% Grenache , 10% Syrah & 10% Mourvèdre. The Le Sentier des Terroirs is nicely textured and rich, with excellent aromas of white pepper, black cherry, spice box and dried flowers. A great finish from a wine that shines for its purity and elegance just as much for its richness and depth.
