Wine Details

This intensely savoury wine has aromas of grilled meat, leather, and pepper held in dynamic tension with violet, licorice and raspberry. Suave and powerful on the palate with a long, complex, nuanced finish. Patiently aged for three years before bottling and release, this wine has tremendous personality and charm.

Cam Confidential

Domaine Gris des Bauries is a tiny domaine located on a plateau in Taulignon in the northwest corner of the Côtes du Rhône appellation – fundamentally, as far north as you can get in the Southern Rhône. Their top bottling, the 2012 Duo des Achaux, is an homage to the partnership of Grenache and Syrah in the Rhône and this 50/50 blend clearly gets its inspiration from the Northern Rhône. Comprised of organically farmed 40 to 90-year-old Grenache and 20 to 40-year-old Syrah vines.

Delicioso! Really, REALLY enjoyed it. So much flavor packed into a $18 bottle of wine. Could almost be Crozes Hermitage or something from the Northern Rhone.
