Côtes Du Roussillon, Roussillon

Cuvée Chevaliere du Clos

Côtes du Roussillon Grenache Blend 2015

Last Drop Bottle Shop, $16

Pretty funky on opening, after breathing for awhile the funk turned into cumin/curry spice covered cherry. Some of the most spice I've ever had in a wine while still being fruity and not too dry like most bordeaux I've had. Thick and velvety with solid tannins and I nice balanced slightly acidic finish. Incredible especially considering the price, I'm going back and buying the rest of the bottles they have left!

Domaine Ferrer Ribière

Empreinte du Temps Grenache Blanc

Matté
9.3

Very old vine Grenache Blanc that’s purposefully oxidised (barrels sent topped up, not sure if there’s any flor). This is one for lovers of Vin Jaune but at a fraction of the price. Orange zest, marmalade, lots of dried stone fruit with a lovely saline, umami thing going on. Burnt butter, toasted nuts, this has many layers.
Palate is mouth filling and rich without being ott. In no way fresh, but that ain’t the game here. All those, nutty, dried fruits come through, has this really lovely tiramisu thing going on in the mid palate and finish (which is long). If you like this style, this is bonkers good value! Best with punchy cuisine such as smoked anchovies and southern french fair.

Randomly found. GL 16 back then. WA92. Nice surprise of a matured and rounded power wine in youth. Dark garnet color, complex floral nose and silky palate and mouth feel with plum and savory herbal notes. Hope not last one. 60/30/10 Grenache Syrah Carignan. 1,200 cases. — 9 days ago

Domaine De La Cendrillon

Nuance Petit Manseng Blend 2019

2019 vintage. Nuance is an original white blend from the excellent organic Languedoc estate La Cendrillon. Petit Manseng (40%), Grenache Gris (18%), Grenache Blanc (12%), Marsanne (7%), Roussanne (7%), Albarino (7%), Verdejo(6%)and Macabeu (3%). A part is vinified and aged in 13hl Austrian wood barrels, the rest in stainless steel. Light yellow. Attractive nose with lemon, peach, fresh pineapple and flowers. Juicy citrus fruits, pineapple and bright acidity go hand in hand with a round mouthfeel. Long finish with ripe pink grapefruit and a salty minerality. Intriguing wine and great value. Highly recommended. — 2 days ago
