I love Languedoc wines. Syrah, Grenache and Carignan. Deep red color. Rich and supple. Quite smooth for a 15.5% wine. Black fruits, cassis and crime brûlée. Really enjoying this wine! — 2 months ago

Modern, oaked white blend from an innovative coop near Uzes, France. 40 Viognier, 30 each Grenache blanc and Roussanne. Bought this in 2012 at the coop. Label advises to drink within 3 years. Which would have been last summer. Label advises drinking temp of 10•C, which is the exact temp of my cellar right now. So this was an easy choice to open.
On the nose: grapefruit, light pineapple, roasted sesame, light oak, orange, rosemary, toasted coconut.
Med body, nicely balanced acidity. Grapefruit juice, sesame oil palate. Pepper, grapefruit, liquorice finish. Reminded me of a SA white oaked blend, which is not a bad thing. — 5 years ago
Viognier, Grenache Blanc, Roussanne, Marsanne.
Floral, pear, citrus, peach, golden grass. 13.5% ABV
Based on this wine, Duché D’Uzes is the Santa Barbara region of California. All notes considered, the peach notes of Grenache Blanc are amazing,and hard to find the equivalent of outside of Santa Barbara (and Paso Robles).
Most definitely has my vote in the $15 range — 3 months ago

Loved this fruity blend with high notes and smooth finish. Enjoyed it with flatbread pizza that was topped with goat cheese, mushrooms, and artichokes. — 5 years ago
