Le Partisan 2018

Strict French wine laws have long limited the creativity of winemakers, but not anymore. The winemaker behind this rebellious French red calls himself Le Partisan for his rule-breaking methods. And when you taste this gorgeous red, you’ll be thankful for his rebellious streak.

Eschewing traditional winemaking practices, Le Partisan crafted this unique red blend with grapes from his favorite vineyards across France. He wouldn’t tell us the specific regions or the exact grape varieties (keeping those premium vineyard sites and the delicious blend a secret for himself), but he hinted that he sourced grapes from the rarefied châteaux of the Atlantic down to the sun-drenched Mediterranean south.

Le Partisan’s mission? To free France from the shackles of old wine law and produce a luscious, modern red. You’re in for subtle lavender and hedgerow bramble notes, supported by a core of wild-grown cassis and hints of spicy oak. With firm tannins and a long, complex finish, this bold red will delight alongside hearty game meats or vegetarian dishes.
