A great name in a mythical bottle, the twilers are not mistaken. This wine garnered the highest rating from the community in 2018! The bottle's design, very atypical, does not prevent falling in love with the wine it contains, on the contrary. This Châteauneuf-du-Pape offers incomparable complexity, for a price defying all competition.
Do not dare to tell Guillaume Boussens that Domaine de Dernacueillette is located in Languedoc-Roussillon. It is in the country of Cucugnan, perched at 600m altitude.
A great winemaker (by size, appetite and talent), an authentic character, big mouth, that the whole team met (and loved) on the Wine Fair.
His wines are balanced, with a beautiful complexity and always in finesse. This natural winemaking, without any input (just a homeopathic dose of sulfur), which allows to highlight his exceptional terroir.
Mas de l'Oncle produces a Pic-Saint-Loup (Languedoc) with a rising reputation. The vineyards are high planted (about 200m above sea level) and the wines are high-level, with extremely reasonable prices in a place where prices are booming. Fabrice Bonmarchand, building engineer for 15 years before returning to the sources, takes over the estate in 2011, since Mas de l'Oncle is experiencing an impressive revival. Neighbor of Clos Marie, it is located on "one of the most beautiful terroirs of the pic Saint-Loup" according to the Guide Hachette des Vins. The wines are representative of what is best on the appellation with typical grape varieties of the region such as syrah, grenache, mourvèdre, carignan and cinsault but also chenanson, a hybrid of jurançon and grenache noir, a rare variety created in the 1950s in Montpellier. The exploitation is conducted in organic farming since 2011. Fabrice is a winemaker to follow very closely, at Twil we love his wines with fruit, freshness and a fine touch of wood.
The cuvée "Tsar Pierre le Grand" from Château Eugénie, a family property in Cahors, is the favorite of the journalist and oenologist Dominique Hutin who recommended it in the famous radio program "On va Déguster".
This is a "rather soft" wine and "poorly supported in color", which is quite amazing in this southwestern region, he says.
The name of the cuvée is a nod to the Russian Tsar who cared for his stomach with Cahors wine. It is said that its tannins have healing properties!
