Rheinhessen: Rediscovered German Wine Country

When I was little, I wanted to become an explorer. I read all the first hand accounts of territorial conquests but concluded with some sadness that the world was already explored. It took me a while to learn that some things can be rediscovered. Rheinhessen is such a place. Riesling is such a grape.

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.
