In today’s New York Times, wine writer Jonathan Mackay documents the dynamics of the online flash wine market such as Wines Til Sold Out, Wine Access, Cinderella WineWine.Woot or Lot18. With this emerging model, wine is heavily discounted because of innovative ways of procuring small batches of the good stuff in a limited time window.  Jonathan muses on the future of wine as a commodity  bundled with other stuff  (wine trips, meals, etc.).

Domaine le Galantin in Bandol

Last week, I visited Celine Pascal at Domaine le Galantin in Bandol. What impressed me most about Celine was her stupendous terroir, visually stunning and evidently present in the bottle as well.

Domaine Le Galantin Bandol Red (2007, $20, 90/100)
Fantastic wine with dark berry, gamy, leathery flavors. Displays soft, round, yet powerful tannins and a structure with the promise of longevity. Made from 95% Mourvedre and 5% Grenache grapes.
