La Cave de l'Abbé Rous

Cuvée des Peintres Collioure Grenache Blend 2020

Cherry, blackberry, plum, licorice, garrigue. Very nice nose. The palate is well made and shows some nice spice (black pepper), blackberry and cherry, a good width and some matter on the side, a vivid mouthfeel with a grip, some light tannins that caress before a long finish with black fruits and licorice in retro. Quite good indeed! We had it along a great moussaka made by Mrs M. and it was great. — 16 days ago

@Tom Casagrande highly recommended! This is very cheap, still relatively low profile and delicious. A priorat from the other side of the border

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

Domaine Autour de l'Anne

Anne Paillet-Ludo Dijoux Lethal Weapanne

Black cherries and plum. Dark but not heavy. Solid red, would be an excellent table wine, and great chilled. Grew a lot on me over time. — 6 days ago

Bastide Miraflors

Cotes Catalanes Vieilles Vignes Syrah-Grenache Blend 2019

Concentrated and rich without being too overbearing. Ripe black fruit, black licorice, incense, and an especially active barnyard. Tannins and acid work together well, and a couple of years should improve things. Solid bottle, especially for the price. — 14 days ago

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.

Tessellae Côtes du Roussillon Vieilles Vignes Grenache Blend 2018

Nose: sawdust, curry spices, rubber. Dates. Toffee. Weird.

Taste: nice acidity, balanced, subtle flavors. Tastes like “real wine.” The curry spices are present but milder than the nose. Dates, plum. Carob. Well made. I think…90.

Fantastic discovery, and a wine with serious fun factor. A bit closed aromatically, this really shines in the mouth. Textured and broad, generous and round but still hanging on to vital acidity, this coats the mouth with green apple, honeyed pear and white flower notes. The textural harmony continues through the finish, where this lingers nicely. This has good impact yet is refreshing as well. Tasty stuff. — 19 days ago
