Thunevin-Calvet & Wine Spectator

(and already a nice order for Dentelles 2008)
Finally! We waited for weeks, months, for these 2 notes and comments from Kim Marcus for our 2 wines from the Roussillon: Thunevin-Calvet 2008 Dentelles and Hugo.

This should help us promote this property as well as wines from this region as it needs a great deal of commercial and media support.

Thanks to the RVF, to Bettane & Desseauve, Decanter and the Wine Advocate for their interest in promoting this beautiful region where ambitious American investors are starting to pay attention. There is in fact a big project with more than 100 hectares purchased by an American entrepreneur and who’s experience is already showing great sales in the US. In Bordeaux, the Chinese are buying properties while in Maury in the Roussillon, it is the Americans. Long live globalization. This “American” cellar I visited in Maury, is amazing, beautiful, designed by Pascal Carrère, who also did ours, and constructed by French and Spanish artisans, with stainless steel tanks from our friends at Lejeune and beautiful French barrels. It is staffed with locals, which is and the most important as it supports the region.
