New wines from old French family

Posted by Joelle Thomson on

Five generations of winemaking has a formidable ring of knowledge, experience and innate understanding that can make us mere mortals feel... well, less than adequate. So it is refreshing to discover an approachable new wine brand from an old winemaking family. Meet Les Jamelles.

This new winery has a long winemaking history in Burgundy under the name Delaunay. It is now based in the south of France where Laurent and Catherine Delaunay have founded two brands; Les Jamelles and their high end wines, Abbotts & Delaunay. Both are available here at Regional Wines & Spirits and they represent the outstanding dry heat of southern France, along with a wide diversity of grape varieties from all the usual suspects... Malbec, Merlot and Syrah (among others) to the lesser known wines, such as Mourvèdre (also known in Spain as Mataro and Monastrell). 

This month we have new Les Jamelles wines in store, which you can find both online and on our Under $25 stand in store.
