Hérault, Languedoc

Domaine Borie de Maurel

Esprit d'Automne Minervois 2017

Earthy, spices like cinnamon, a little funky. Interesting wine. — 22 days ago

Domaine du Pegau

Plan Pegau Vin de France Red Rhone Blend

I’m equally proud and embarrassed for how cheap I found this on clearance - about $8. To be fair, Pegau is a very well respected CDP. I think this sees a discount in the portfolio because it’s built from multiple vintages. How many multi vintage reds do we see?

Deep dark rounded corners. Lush dark berries, cedar, and pencil with sprinkled salt and minerals with tannic inflection. I’ll take this again if I find it.

Tasty a little funky biodynamic, medium to full bodied, ~$19 — 5 days ago

Château de Bagnoles

Majelus Cabardès Red Blend 2015

Intensely mineral nose. Nuthin but rocks. Maybe a little red fruit. Peppery and minerally in the mouth as well. Full and bone dry. I actually crave a wine like this occasionally, and fortunately tonight is one of those nights! — 2 days ago

Domaine de Chamans (Hegarty Chamans)

Open Now Minervois Red Blend 2017

Low-tannin, deep blackberry but flat, single-note. Simply likable but not particularly interesting. — 20 hours ago

Olivier Cohen

Déferlante 2 Rosé Blend

Melon and blackberry and all sorts of good stuff wrapped in acidity and a nice little funk of bret. Would be perfect on the beach or park on a hot ass day. — 21 hours ago

Clos Lalfert

Vin de Pays de l'Hérault Red Blend 2015

It feels like the wine is about to be quite Jammy but then it turns refined. Heavily tilted toward Syrah but adding more Cab balances this red. Food friendly. — 5 days ago

Faire la Fete

Crémant de Limoux Brut Sparkling Blend

Faire la Fête takes its cue from village of Limoux – “birthplace of bubbles” - where world’s longest running annual carnival celebration allows revelers to dance, sing, celebrate and enjoy an endless flow of sparkling wine. A blend of70% Chardonnay, 20% Chenin Blanc & 10% Pinot Noir. Clean, light aromatic nose of citrus, stone fruits and yeasty notes. Palate, ripe apple and lemon flavors, slightly creamy texture, balanced by crisp acidity and fine bubbles on lingering citrusy finish. — 15 days ago
