Best Beverage Offers New French Wines

By January 28, 2022Rhode Island, Top News

Best Beverage welcomed several new French wines to the Rhode Island market for the new year from Bon Vivant Imports. Famille de Boel France is a small family estate owned and run by a husband-and-wife team in the high elevations of Saint Joseph. Using biodynamic farming and winemaking from its vineyards in the Northern Rhône, as well as from land in the Southern Rhône, the duo offers Le Gras C’est La Vie, a blend of Carignan, Grenache and Caladoc, as well as Les Voraces, a pure expression of Syrah from the Northern Rhône in the Collines Rhodaniennes IGP, where only stainless steel is used for fermentation, and a short aging to give as much varietal character as possible. Vila Voltaire, a small, personal passion project of winemaking rock star Stéphane Yerle, offers Puech Auriol Rouge 2019, a 100% Carignan from Saint-Chinian, and Je Suis Tombé Par Terre, a red blend of Carignan, Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
