Domaine de la Damase is located in Vaucluse, in the southern Rhone Valley in France, and what a hidden little gem this producer is! This is from Sebastien Latour and his family, the 8th continuous generation working this land and making wine, as well as farming animals, growing truffles… the works. 100% Grenache, aged in old barrels. This is organic, it’s so good, and it’s a comparative bargain. For the Rhone fans, it’s got all that dark red licorice-tinged fruit, with some good hefty structure. The kind of wine you drink over in France, and wonder why the same kind of wine never tastes the same here. This does. Roast some lamb, fry up some sausages, or roast off some fall veg. You might want this in bulk.
