At time of writing, there are 72 bottles available at This big, bold, sassy wine from the Southern Rhône pairs wonderfully well with anything coming off the BBQ or from your favourite pizza palour. These are bound to go quickly. But fear not. We have just secured another 25 cases that will soon be on their way


Florian and Bernard Giuliani hard at work in the Domain Giuliani cellars!

Per usual, I’d be pleased to order for you. Just let me know what you would like and to which LCBO store you want it sent.

2018 Côtes du Rhône "Les Notes de Louis" - 15.8% Alc./Vol.    $18.90 the bottle LCBO Product No. 790873

This glorious Côtes du Rhône is made from almost 100% Grenache - and the Giulianis are very, very talented Grenache growers. This robust beauty is a brilliant ruby colour and exhibits a pronounced, lively nose of raspberries, plums and cherries. In the mouth these persist, accompanied by black currents and hints of pepper and licorice. It is big and wonderfully round and supple with silky tannins and surprising length. This stunner will go marvellously with savoury tarts and grilled meats, in other words, perfect for the BBQ. While drinking brilliantly well now (I'd decant a couple of hours before enjoying), it will keep nicely for at least three or four years. This is terrific stuff.

Follow My Vinous Adventures on Gentleman's Portion

I continue to write about our experiences in the wild and wacky world of wine in a delightful lifestyle blog called Gentleman’s Portion. The latest is titled ‘That Winery Near Aix-en-Provence’. Please join me and my fellow contributors, Nigel Napier-Andrews and David Moorcroft, as we regale you with a good helping of everything great in life.

Here’s how works. We will supply the LCBO with selected wines and you or anyone else in Ontario can order and pay for them on-line via the ‘’ site. The major benefit to you is that the wines will already be here at the LCBO warehouse and will be delivered in a short amount of time. By paying a $12 delivery fee, they will ship it (regardless of quantity as long as the order is for $50 or more) by way Canada Post to any address in Ontario and it will be delivered within four business days. Or, you can avoid the shipping fee by having the wine sent to any LCBO store you designate. The store will call you once it is ready to be picked up. This process will take from one to two weeks (possibly up to four weeks in remote areas). Another benefit is that you will no longer have to provide us with the LCBO Lab Waiver email.

Please get in touch with me if you have any questions, would like additional information or would like my help ordering your wine. The LCBO will assist with any post-ordering issues. Contact them at ‘helloLCBO’.
