Languedoc Roussillon, France

Domaine La Tour Vieille

Rimage Banyuls Grenache 2009

Really interesting wine fortified but not to a large degree (16.5 ABV) mushroom and spice super late picked strawberry jam and wood background in the mouth the Rhonish character comes out ( not as heavy as port) — 2 days ago

Spice evident in the mouth as well

Bastide Miraflors

Cotes Catalanes Vieilles Vignes Syrah-Grenache Blend 2016

Always a good purchase.
Prune juice nose with a bit of pomegranate mixed in,
Medium bodied, with lovely baked pie layers, fresh pie dough, currant filing, hint of lemon zest, with just enough popsicle stick tannin to carry this on.
Always a great purchase.

Excellent pair with smoked turkey, and other fatty substances, such as nuts and coconuts. Very subtle in its compliments — 7 days ago

Mas Jullien

Coteaux du Languedoc 2005

Was frankly stunned by the elegance and freshness here, particularly given my own review of the ‘07 earlier this year, which was not nearly so giving. Vintage (and bottle) variation are real. In any case this was really beautiful and walked that delicate balance between refined grace and animal / rustic notes that I love, with firm but smooth tannins — 3 days ago

Domaine Rimbert

Le Mas au Schiste Saint-Chinian Carignan Blend 2016

Any producer that can somehow bring sadomasochism into wine should be congratulated. I had this several years ago and it’s interesting how it’s changed. It’s become more brutish, pun intended. it’s a bigger wine. In the past I loved it’s cinnamon notes and lighter texture but now it feels like there’s more Syrah or perhaps global warming has just caught up to it. Berkshires buy, from the summer. — 17 days ago

Domaine Ollier Taillefer

Rosé Les Collines Faugères 2018

"the geology and elevation give bright aromatics in fresh toothsome flavors to this rose wine, a hand-harvested blend of Cinsault 40%, Grenache 30%, Syrah 20%, Mourvedre 10%. It's rose but it's not your typical pinkish hue. It's paler, like wallpaper bleached by the sun. you will find hints of black fruit, a product of the razor sharp schist rock that makes up the top layer of soil in this region. aficionados of the language dark region instantly spot that telltale trace of garrigue - the bushy fragrant vegetation that grows on the Mediterranean." — 11 days ago
