That is one ugly-ass bottle.


Make sure you don't copy it!


If I do, I'll name the wine PVPP.

Maybe we should give them the benefit of the doubt, and hope that this is a work in progress. They obviously don't need the money and I assume they perceive they are doing good by producing an organic Provencal rose (very cool) with the Perrin family (great rep). Maybe now they need to reflect on whether they want to have a high-volume commercial product (with PVPP fining and other tech tricks ensuring consistency) or a more limited, but very special wine that, as you say, is a "fresh wine no matter of its shade."

The bottles is so ugly. The more you report, the more I learn and the more I realize how the world of wine is Frankenwine. I will stick with my contadino wines for now.


George, I'm not sure Beaucastel has been Beaucastel for quite a while, and let we forget, they are responsible for the pretty industrial La Vieille Ferme.

I'm hunting the Leon Trotskys, the Philip Roths, the Chaucers and the Edith Whartons of the wine world. I want them natural and most of all, I want them to speak the truth even if we argue. With this messiah thing going on, I'm trying to swell the ranks of those who crave the differences in each vintage, celebrate nuance and desire wines that make them think, laugh, and feel. Welcome.
