The Vic family are fifth generation wine growers in Southern France and they are truly lucky folks. That’s because they get to work on a very special property with roots that date back to the 12th century and terroir that boasts the most incredible rocky volcanic soils.
This wine comes from rolling hills right near the villas of Vias on the Mediterranean coast. All the vines are 25+ years old and the wines are fermented and aged in stainless steel – helping create soft concentrated fruit and tannin with a good amount of natural acidity and a lush, full-bodied mouthfeel. The low-yield vines here are an integral part of why this works so perfectly. You get highly concentrated, clean fruit that doesn’t have to be artificially pumped up in any – it’s completely revved up with energy.
This one has it all. It’s an aromatic fireworks show that’s backed by pure blue and black fruits. It’s well-textured, super fresh and beautifully balanced with a seductive bouquet of blackberry, mocha and even some violets. A little bit of Bing cherry, sage and crème de cassis creep up towards the finish, bringing everything together in seamless fashion.

The wine itself is dark purple in color, with lifted aromatics of black cherry, lavender, thyme, and anise. The fruit is pure, juicy, and vibrant with great tension. The finish is classic Provençal, savory and stony, super fresh and long. I’m telling you, this wine absolutely over-delivers. It’s got a beautiful dark color and structure of Cabernet with the fruit and garrigue-spice ala the top Southern Rhone Grenache and Syrah, making this one delicious summer red that is absolutely perfect with burgers on the grill or roasted leg o’ lamb.
Valery Renaudat’s 2022 P’tit Renaudat Pinot soars from the glass, with a mixture of black cherry and blueberry fruit on the nose, gradually unfurling to reveal some aromas of rose petal. The palate is medium-bodied with juicy fruit and a long, fresh finish that will keep you coming back for more.
Winemaker Pascal Sirat consistently puts out some of the best value Bordeaux in the region but he may have outdone himself in what was a stellar 2019 vintage throughout the region. Just south of Pomerol, the vines at Panchille borrow deep in the soil. The resulting wines are ripe but fresh, with an aromatic complexity and stony finish usually reserved for wine twice the price. Daniel Boulud tells me it’s been the hottest bottle of wine at Bar Boulud for over a month, so I figured I’d better hurry up and secure my allocation! Don’t miss it.
