RSS stands for "Really Simple Syndication". It is a way to easily distribute a list of headlines, update notices, and sometimes inventory changes to a wide number of people. Think of it as a one-stop shop for all the stuff you want to read online. For the consumer, an aggregator or reader, either web-based or installed on your computer, ties it all together.

To make use of this information, you have to download and install an RSS feed reader like SharpReader. Every so often, the aggregator checks the RSS feeds you selected. You log on to the aggregator and see the updates to your favorite sites, blogs and stores, all in one place. For more information on RSS, please visit:

2012 Belle - Crozes-Hermitage Les Pierrelles
The nose is very open, an immediate basket of fresh fruit, full of blackcurrants, raspberries and juicy pomegranates. This indulgence then develops with deeper, darker, almost tuberous notes like iris-root. Resinous juniper and wood ash also enhance the aromatic palette and lengthen the perception. The palate is a real treat: soft and flattering. As usual for this cuvee, softness dominates from the attack. Fine, silky tannins increase the mouth volume and the sensation of pleasure. The finish is long and displays excellent balance, with no heaviness. This delicate wine is already very pleasing. It can be opened now simply for the pleasure - and why not as an aperitif, as it needs hardly any accompaniment. On the other hand, if it is destined for the table, it goes very well with roast poultry, rabbit or offal.
