Hérault, Languedoc

Domaine de la Grange des Pères

Vin de Pays de l'Hérault Red Rhone Blend 2015

White before red. Just an incredible array of aroma and flavors with every sip. Cooked black plum, dried black cherry, dried rose petals, dust, cracked pepper, cedar, wood smoke, fur, olive, leather, cocoa powder, garrigue, tar, hot iron, black tea. Everything about screams rustic but the elegance of tannin and lengthy finesse counter everything peasant about it. More impressive on day 2 is the seamless nature of it, harmonious from front to back, gaining more an overall savory and meaty profile. The shiitake, cured meat, hoisin, talcum and leather really starting to unfold. I think this could be beautiful in 5-8 years, but I love the fruit component at this moment.

Bought at the domaine in 2019. Orange peel, hazelnut, minerals, very ripe melon and pear. Deep and rich, with tremendous length, this is very impressive and puts a big smile on my face. — 19 days ago

La Butinière Limoux Rouge 2019

Nicely structured local red, blend of Merlo, Syrah, Malbec and CS, with some wood aging.
Black berries & mulberries, a fresh flowery note (violets, lavender), dried herbs, a savoury, earthy undertone. Fresh!
On the palate this is balanced with juicy, grippy tannins, good flow, savoury with the fruit adding rather than dominating. Nice mouthfeel, good drinkability, alc held nicely in check (13%).
A proper french food wine!
