Chappelle St. Theodoric - a project of winemaker Bapiste Grangeon and Peter Weygandt - has quickly become one of our favorite Southern Rhône producers. The domaine is comprised of two parcels of Grenache vines (each ranging in age between 50-100 years): La Guigasse, a soil of pure sand, and Le Grand Pin, a terroir of pure sand at the top of Pignan - and famously neighboring Château Rayas. "Les Sablons" is Grenache from both parcels, and is not produced in every vintage - we loved the 2014 and 2016 which were very much in the style of Guigasse and Grand Pin and we loved the price as well. Here is what Livingstone-Learmonth has to say about the 2019  "dark red, a little pale at the top. The bouquet carries well weighted raspberry, ripe red berry fruit with a distinct note of iodine, seashore and its freshness, a touch of licorice. The palate presents a steady run of spiced red fruited content, has a crisp edge in the tannins, its middle tasty, raspberry-fruited, the finish dark, almost tarry. It’s a naked style of Châteauneuf, unadorned, carries potential to fuse, and retain sound clarity as it evolves. Late intensity reveals the inner strength of the vintage. Drink from 2023-24 until 2043-45."  Sounds good to me…
