Chapoutier La Ciboise Luberon - $14.00
(No rating yet)
Chapoutier makes wine in the Rhone valley that can go for over $400 a bottle. But whether it his rock stars or his everyday drinkers, they are made with style and substance. And this one tastes like it should cost a lot more! Great spicy blackberry flavors and tangy spice notes.
La Ciboise (lah see-BWAHZ) is the name of Michel Chapoutier’s grandfather’s home. Located right in the center of the town of Tain l’Hermitage, La Ciboise was the energetic center of Chapoutier family life where children and relatives used to meet regularly. Similarly, these new wines from the M.Chapoutier portfolio are intended to be enjoyed with friends and family to celebrate everyday life. Luberon is located in the southeastern area of the Rhône Valley; it has a continental climate due to its proximity to the Alps. One of Europe’s oldest wine regions dating back to 750 BC, it received official A.O.C. status in 1988 and is known for producing charming value wines. One of the most sun-drenched regions in France, it is frequently visited and enjoyed by tourists.
