Minervois, Languedoc-Roussillon, France

2017 Château Maris “Natural Selection"
Minervois, Languedoc-Roussillon, France
60% Syrah, 40% Grenache
A greatly complex wine from start to finish. From the lush nose full of ripe black fruit and spice notes, to the deep garnet color with hints of violet, this wine is supple and dark-fruit driven. Offering a medium-bodied richness with generous weight, the finish is long and lingering. Fresh and vibrant, yet concentrated and rich. Made with no fining and a light filtration.

2017 Château Maris “Les Planels” Cru La Liviniere
Minervois, Languedoc-Roussillon, France
“Mostly Grenache, the 2017 Les Planels is a sweetly fruited, plush, hedonist beauty that gives up loads of ripe red and black fruits, toasted spices, chocolate, and incense aromas and flavors. With sweet tannins, medium to full body, no hard edges, and outstanding length, it’s ideal for drinking over the coming 6-8 years!”

Irish Whiskey, named after the last bare-knuckled boxing heavyweight world champion, is distinguished by being aged in “single use” Bourbon barrels. Most Irish Whiskey is aged in ex-Bourbon casks, however it’s the single-use factor that gives Sullivan a little more depth. 
Clear vanilla notes on the nose, then more vanilla plus some citrus on the tongue. Oak hits you on the finish, with nuts, and a little bit of spice, very incense-like. A satiny body brings this all together impressively. This is an Irish that is clearly in balance and, while relatively straightforward in the end, knows exactly how to make an impression.

"This Bourbon-barrel-finished whiskey is a treat, with a light amber color, caramel and orange peel aroma, and a lingering caramel and spice finish. Soft, smooth and full-bodied."
