Languedoc Roussillon, France

Domaine du Possible

Charivari Côtes du Roussillon 2016

I like the style of these Domaine du Possible wines. They aren’t shy to barnyard and mouse. These animal instincts make for an interesting intersection of funk, mineral, and fresh fruit. You get the sense they are untouched. Charivari is 100% Carignan and nicely expressive. It has a glowing ruby color with raspberry, cherry hard candy, and musty cage. Completely fresh and all in good balance. — a day ago

Hecht & Bannier (Gregory & Francois)

Languedoc Vin Rouge Syrah Blend 2015

JC
9.0

Musty and dry. Mild. The sweet fruit notes are very subtle. The smell on opening is a bit barny, but it dissipates in the glass. It’s an easy drinker that would pair with just about any sturdy fish or any meat. Great price. Lovely wine. — 3 days ago

Matassa

Cuvée Marguerite Côtes Catalanes Blanc Viognier Muscat 2017

This is a deliciously interesting and idiosyncratic beery wine of hazy dried apricots. Some light effervescence and tannic grip mixes into a complex nervy texture. It has unmistakable upfront aromas of West Coast IPA hops accompanied by white flowers, baking spice, nutmeg, and tangerine. It’s light bodied with flavors of salty peaches, grapefruit, and white flowers. And extra points for 10% ABV and zero residual sugar. The Matassa wines are so good and Cuvée Marguerite is no exception. — 4 days ago

Côtes Catalanes Chardonnay

Really good bargain. Very well made, full bodied Chardonnay from the Rousillon, no oak but aged on the lees, apple, lemon, biscuit, some tropical notes. — 8 days ago

Barons de Rothschild (Lafite)

Chateau d'Aussieres Corbières Red Rhone Blend 2014

Черешня, корица, очень сочно. Элегантно, даже красиво. Прям понравилось. Редко найдешь нормальную Францию не по цене чугунного моста. — 8 days ago

La Sorga

Aubunite Carcassonne Aubun Carignan

A trip to funky town in a bottle, sparkling Lambrusco gone mad. Hard to tell the faults from the finesse, but halfway through the bottle you ask for a second one. Definitely chill before opening, this is Sparkling Carignan done right. — 6 days ago
