Clos Centeilles

Carignanissime de Centeilles Minervois Carignane

A very aerial expression of Carignan in carbonic maceration. The nose is almost intoxicating: black fruits, flowers, liquorice. The mouth is thin, light, silky. Crush again for this superb cuvée at a very reasonable cost. To drink a little refreshed.

Une expression très aérienne du Carignan en macération carbonique. Le nez est presque enivrant: fruits noirs, fleurs, réglisse. La bouche est fine, légère, soyeuse. Coup de cœur à nouveau pour cet superbe cuvée à coût très raisonnable. À boire un poil rafraîchi.

Medium bodied. Not fruit forward or leathery. Rhonda likes it, and says it is different than rioja. Buy a case — 8 hours ago

Domaine l'Aiguelière

Côte Dorée Coteaux du Languedoc Montpeyroux Syrah 1994

Less evolved than the Cote Rousse, more fruit-driven (again, redfruits mostly), less leathery, gamy, great balance, definitely shows little to no Brett, long finish, really outstanding!! — 15 days ago

@Ira Schwartz, these are honestly great wines that were low-to-mid $20s in those days, which is laughable now but seemed $$$ in those days with all the Languedoc stuff in this days in the $10-15 range. But, other than Peyre-Rose (Madame Soria, IIRC), amazing wines that were a little cheaper, d’Aigueliere single cuvees were the gold standard!!

Mas Des Agrunelles

Nicot Grenache Blanc Blend 2020

New release is actually 50% Grenache Blanc, 50% Marsanne… from languedoc but at a high elevation so surprisingly crisp and delicate, but still with a bit of an unbalanced floral edge that isn’t totally up my particular alley. — 6 days ago

Château Croix d'Aumèdes

Cuvée Réserve Corbières Red Rhone Blend 2018

Value buster. Great balance of acid, fruit and texture. Lovely bouquet of ripe dark cherry, plum, faint garrigue, leather and licorice. Very smooth finish. Not a great five bean soup pairing, but is there really? 97 pt DAWA — 17 days ago
