About five years ago welost the ability to sell thesewines here in MN becauseof a national distributionchange that granted the rights to thisbrand to a company with whom we refuseto do business. Although our stance is aprincipled one, I was heartbroken. I hadworked hard to get these wines here, theteam at Surdyk's had worked hard tospread the word about how great theywere, and of course Louis Barroul, ownerand winemaker extraordinaire, had workedhard to make the wines themselves great.A lot of work, but the kind of work weenjoy doing. So the loss was significant.Recently, again through forces beyond ourcontrol, the wines were made available tous through an acceptable distributionchannel. The timing could not have better,as it happened just on the verge of therelease of the much anticipated 2015vintage of the basic Cotes du Rhone. Ithink every one of us on staff bought abottle the first week it was here, and theresponse was, shall we say, consistent. Thewine is great. It is rich without beingheavy, it has the familiar Rhone flavorprofile of berries, herbs de provence, earthand leather, and it is bursting with its ownpersonality and vitality. Seriously, try tofind a way to buy two cases of this wine. Itis tremendous, and is easily the best basicCotes du Rhone I have have had since thelast time St. Cosme was available here.
