Wine Geek Recommended
Meet the CoolVines Wine Geek! He’ll guide you toward – or away from! – wines that have a unique flavor profile: intentionally oxidized wines, earthy, stinky wines, wines with a bit of fritz on the tongue. Look for him throughout our web site, and on the shelves in our stores, to point the way toward these geeky wines.
In France, the rooster (le coq) is a symbol of national pride derived from the multiple translations of Gallus (Gaul for France, and rooster.) The Bourgeois family created this cuvee in homage to the bird, heralded as a vigilant creature, always crowing at the rising of the sun each morning. The name is also symbolic of the simple lifestyle of the French peasantry.
This bio-dynamically farmed, scrumptous red from winemaker Jerome Bourdier is crafted from 25-year old vine fruit.
The wine region of Languedoc is quite vast, encompassing much of the Mediterranean coastline of France, as well as reaching quite far inward. To the east, it abuts the southern Rhone and Provence regions, and the wines reflect that in their structured blends. To the west, the region divides further, with Bordeaux-influenced wines to the north, and Catalunian-influences to the south. This diversity (and relative cheapness of land) lends itself to a wine culture that is very playful. Lots of producers from other regions buy property here to experiment. In addition, there is an abundance of good, inexpensive wine that makes it to US shores from Languedoc, most with very "cheeky" names.
