KEGS & BAG IN BOX
Some estates allow visits at specific times of year to taste different finished wines from different grapes and vineyards. In 2015, and after many trials, Jocelyn Cambier eventually created a red Cotes du Rhone wine which truly expresses the land it comes from. Last February, he did the same thing for a Cotes du Rhone Villages red 2017. Tapwines.com hopes that in the near future, both of these wines will be available in 20 liter Keykegs. For now, enjoy the bottle or the BIB.

During my trips to Europe, I sometimes discover special, unique "Selection, Cuvee or Blend" wines from independent wine estates, which, once in a while, will give me the privilege of offering those wine in kegs in a very limited volume.
As of today, these wines are:
- IGP Terres du Midi, 80% Sauvignon Blanc, 20% Rolle (Provence name for Vermentino).
Pale yellow straw in color, a very fragrant nose of white flowers, broom brush, honeysuckle, gardenia, white peach, apricot, citrus and tropical fruit tones wrapped in a vibrant medium body, combined with ripe acidity, and slightly salty mineral with sea air. Absolutely delightful!
- Beaujolais Villages Rouge, 100% Gamay:
Intense cherry color with purple/carmine hues, the nose expresses a complex blend of peony scents, cherry and touch of granite kind of minerals, in a deliciously juicy supple medium body with super smooth tanins, and a great feel of pleasure satisfaction.
- Beaujolais Blanc, 100% Chardonnay Unoaked (Very Rare!!):
A total rarity! This appellation only produces 1% of white for 99% red. Pale yellow in color, Super focused nose of white flowers, with hints of white peach, banana, pineapple, and citrus fruit. The body is medium to full body, the flavors coat your palate, long in the mouth, with an amazing freshness. A very rare yet very worthy discovery of a new facet of Chardonnay. Striking!
- IGP Pays d'Oc, 100% Syrah Rose:
This wine is a small unique CUVEE from a family estate located near the Costieres de Nimes area known to produce awesome Syrah based wines, because of is micro climate. This 100% Syrah Rose wine is pale pink in color (Provence style), due to a short maceration (6 to 8 hours) on the skins. It is then pressed and temperature controlled stainless steel vats fermented. 50% of the wine undergoes malolactic fermentation, which gives it more body without taking away its crisp tone. Nose of nectarine, white peach, pomelo, medium body on the palate, with the same ripe and supple fruit flavors enhanced by a touch of minerality, finishing round and juicy.
