Languedoc Roussillon, France

Domaine Léon Barral

Jadis Faugères Carignane Blend 2010

Savage grace. If you want to take a walk on the wild side, but in the most elegant way possible, this is for you. Violets, animal, plums, cherries, dried herbs. Tannins firm but playing a supporting role. A pleasure to follow the evolution over an hour or two. It’s officially fall weather here in NYC so thoughts are turning to southern France... — 5 hours ago

Matassa Rouge Vin de Pays des Côtes Catalanes Carignan 2007

What a gem. Shared a lot of traits with good, well aged red burgundy and had none of the tough/bitter traits of carignan. — 18 days ago

An approachable rounded and generous Southern Rhône wine presenting intense red fruit and a delightful hint of spices, this wine was a pleasant Costco Calgary find @ ~$19.50 CAD. Not a Grand Cru but at this price point well worth stocking in your wine selection. Cheers 🍷 — 18 days ago

Château l'Euziere

Coteaux du Languedoc Pic St. Loup Syrah Blend 2012

2012 vintage on 14.10.18
Enjoyed with unexpected but warm welcomed guest. As wine with the pasta as without great drinking pleasure. Mocca, chocolate and coffee nose. Smooth and sweet tastes. Tannins still there but not disturbing. THANKS for bringing it along Berry!

Château de Rey

Oh de Muscat Côtes Catalanes Blanc 2015

Both the name and grape and, frankly, fact that it was from Roussillon made me think it wouldn’t be for me. And it totally is. It has all the markers of Muscat flavor—honeydew, orange blossom, honeysuckle and peach juice...with...SURPRISE! It is dry as can be with a big kick of sea spray salinity and squeeze of lemon. Fresh. And then I realized it was a Sacred Thirst import and it all made sense. This wine is cool and surprising. It’s the soccer mom who doesn’t try too hard to fit in with her teenaged kids but also just happens to make her own organic juices and was married to a rock star and...oh shit this wine is Gwyneth Paltrow. And it is beautiful as her. Seriously drink with eyes closed and you are at a bonfire party on the beach eating melon. So into it. — 18 days ago

Les Darons Languedoc Grenache Blend 2016

Excellent! 13,5% volume. Woddy smell with licorice and spices. Great balance. Smooth and good tannic level to keep it 10 years (max). Ordered it several times. Blends very well with duck, faux filet and côtes de bœuf — 6 days ago

Domaine Le Roc Des Anges

Côtes du Roussillon Villages Reliefs 2014

Ежевика, красная слива, сухая смородина, черешня, мягкие специи, тапенад, мята, эвкалипт, гаррига, подлесок, жирная земля, выраженные минеральные тона. Полное плюшевое тело с хорошей кислотностью и аккуратными танинами. Очень молодо, по-южному тепло, щедро и насыщенно, при этом непосредственно, свежо и ярко, не утомительно. Без тонкости и элегантности, но подвижно и собранно, с чистым сердцем.
На второй день немного устаёт и упрощается.
