Château La Roque

Cupa Numisma Pic Saint Loup Red Blend 2019

Yes, to early-evening sunshine after being cooped up inside all day!! And, yes, to savoring a glass of delicious wine while we’re at it!!!

This wine is 60% Syrah, 40% Mourvèdre, hailing from the Pic Saint Loup appellation in the Languedoc-Roussillon region of southern France. It was produced by Château La Roque, which is certified biodynamic and practices low-intervention winemaking.

It offers a medium purple hue with medium (+) intensity of youthful aromas reminiscent of black cherry compote, blackberry sauce, ripe plum, also licorice, anise, peppercorn, nutmeg, tobacco, leather, peat, and cured meat (not tied to bottle aging).

This wine is dry with medium acidity, high alcohol (14.2%), a medium (+) body, medium (+) and grippy tannins, and medium (+) intensity in flavors consistent with the nose, but the pepper is more present on the palate than on the nose. The finish is medium (+).

This wine has balance, a strong structure, and great concentration of aromas and flavors. It’s beautiful.

We have tasted and loved many wines coming from this appellation (and the Languedoc-Roussillon region) lately. It's a region undoubtedly worth exploring.

Château Puech Redon

Apparente Languedoc Cinsault Blend 2019

Fantastic. Fresh and vibrant, this was a great summer wine, with or without a chill. Fruit punch on the nose, macerated strawberries and blueberries on the palate along with a bit of spice. It checked all the boxes for a great weeknight wine in August! 100% Cinsault. 8/10/22. — 3 months ago

Clos de la Barthassade

Billes de Grenache 2020


This reminded me of the old chewing gum Chewels. The gum had a liquid center and when you bit into it the sugar syrup burst out. This wine was the same way. The flavor just exploded when you took a sip. Ripe red fruit that is so pure. Acidity galore. Chilled it for a hot second and that didn’t hurt either. I think it was around $28 and it was well worth it. — a month ago
