While the vineyard site has changed hands within the de la Roque family since the 13th century, this Languedoc winery undoubtedly remains one of the oldest family-run vineyards in all of France. For those unfamiliar with the wines of the Languedoc, the A.O.C. shares the same red grape varieties as much of the Rhône: Mourvédre, Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault and Carignan. This particular wine is mostly Grenache blended with smaller quantities of Syrah and Mourvédre. The chewy, dark red fruit of this wine is heightened by its fermentation in cement tanks and thanks to this lack of oak aging, this wine remains delicate and lively vintage after vintage. Whether you’re looking for a pairing for spicy chicken tacos or a rib eye steak, this surprisingly versatile red fits the bill. Finding any wine imported by the legendary Kermit Lynch is a challenge in many stores, but a Kermit Lynch import under $20 is a particular rarity in 2017. Grab a bottle while you can!

What People Are Saying
There are lots of wine stores in the neighborhood and if you tend to drink the same kinds of wine all the time, there are other stores that might be more to your liking. But if you want to explore the world of wine – really get to know the multitude of wine regions and get exposed to different grapes and truly small, artisanal producers – Amsterdam Wine Co can take you on an amazing journey. Thank you, Amsterdam!

Excellent selection of curated wines and liquors. Wonderful staff that are knowledgeable to the point of knowing exactly what you’re looking for.
I’ve lived on the UWS for 20+ years and long ago had pledged my allegiance to one of the old stalwart liquor stores in the neighborhood. But something made we want to give Amsterdam Wine Co a shot. I did…. and I’ve never looked back. Great selection, great prices and amazing service. It’s my new “go-to.”
