DJ turned winemaker, and son of the infamous Eric Texier (who seems to be mentioned in every other French natural wine project these days), Martin Texier makes some of my favorite wines from the Rhone valley. He farms about 5 hectares in the village of St.-Julien-en-St.-Alban, planted to the classic grape varieties of the region: Syrah, Grenache, Cinsault, Roussanne and others. After a couple vintages of uber-natural tasting wines, Martin shifted his attention to farming his vines with the utmost care in order to yield healthy fruit to produce clean, delicious wines that require no additions. The most recent vintage I tasted is certainly my favorite, full of energy and character and not a mouse tail in sight.

Martin's Cotes du Rhone bottling is 100% Grenache from 30 year old wines planted on granitic soil. Given a gentle whole cluster maceration for a week, this is a light, juicy and refreshing expression of this joyful grape. Aromas of fresh red berries and sandalwood jump out of the glass, with cherry, wild strawberry and blood orange on the palate. Great served slightly chilled, and exactly what I would want with pizza.

Terms & Conditions

You must be 21 years or older to purchase and receive products from Vanderbilt Wine Merchants. If you request shipping you authorize Vanderbilt Wine Merchants to engage a common carrier to deliver your order. All shipments require an adult signature at the time of delivery. Therefore, either you or an authorized adult must be present at the time of delivery with proof of identification. 
If you wish to ship to a location outside of New York State, you assume all responsibility for shipment. We will notify you before processing your order if we are unable to ship wine to the state you request. For the protection of your wines, we will not ship during warmer months without your express request. All orders are packed immediately upon purchase but we may wait for optimal conditions to send. Since we cannot control the temperature of any common carrier, we do our best to send shipments out at the beginning of each week. We will always confirm any delays in shipment, and the choice is ultimately up to you.
Some of our wine is sold "Pre-Arrival." All "Pre-Arrival" items will be indicated as such on our website and include the estimated date of arrival. We will contact you once the wine has arrived and confirm any shipment or delivery requests prior to sending. 

We are here to help you with your order, so don't hesitate to text us at (718) 398-1800 or email us at with any questions!

From time to time we purchase private collections and offer these wines to you at competitive and, we think, very attractive pricing.  We only purchase cellars of top provenance bottles that have been stored in ideal conditions, and we only work with trusted acquaintances and collectors.  If the wine you are considering does not display certain information, or if you would like certain images of the bottles please email us at
