Corbières, Languedoc

Château de Caraguilhes

Domaine de L'Olivette Coteaux de Cabrerisse Red Blend 2031

This organic wine is made in a 16th century Chateau and is a blend of Syrah, Merlot and Grenache. After about 30 min of decanting this wine displayed an impressive array of tastes that continued to evolve. It has a blend of stewed red fruits, dominated by strawberry, raspberry, rhubarb and raspberries. Additionally it has musky truffle notes that add complexity and depth. The wine ends with a mild springy acidity that enhances the flavours rather than over dominating. — 10 days ago

Domain des Aires Hautes Minervois-La Livinière 2015

Lots of green notes. Green bell pepper, green herbs, and notes of unripe fruit. Very lush and 30 minutes presentation though, starting with the green notes in the front and rolling to a tart and warm finish. Round in the mouth but with just enough acid and tannins to provide good structure. — 3 days ago

La Joupatière Carignan blend 2012

This is not the Carignan blend, but I can’t seem to edit the descriptor. This is the 2012 La Joupatiere and it is one of the most unique and interesting wines. Thank you Colline de l’hirondelle. As their website explains, “The oldest vineyard in the village! Planted at the end of the 19th century, it miraculously escaped phylloxera and the uprooting of old vines that has plagued the Languedoc; this tiny one-acre plot is a conservatory of rare and disappearing varieties. A local vine scientist has identified the following 13 varieties: Carignan noir, Grenache noir, Cinsault noir, Mourrastel Boucher noir, Rivairenc noir, Grand Noir de la Calmette, Mourvèdre noir, Terret noir, Terret gris, Terret blanc, Olivette blanche, Chasselas doré, Valencin rose and two mysterious varieties are still unidentified.” What a blend. — a month ago

Grande Réserve de Gassac Famille Guibert Vin de Pays de l'Hérault Red Blend 2008

I have been thinking and overthinking about this magnum we've had after the Burgundy section and I believe we have been extremely lucky. We did not have huge expectations, but the wine sang marvelously. To me this was a special bottle of which it will be very hard to get hold again. — 16 days ago

Brut Blanquette de Limoux 2015

This blanquette seems to make you feel so much fancier than you truly are. Here I was, drinking this in sweat pants and a dirty tank top and yet thought “you know, Heather SHOULD of taken me to that dinner party, that bitch!” Anyway, this was an absolutely amazing drink, and the notes of apple and the crisp, refreshing body had me loving every drop. Cheers to you Heather! — 10 days ago
