Languedoc Roussillon, France

Domaine de Bisconte

Select Vins Côtes du Roussillon Red Blend 2017

Costco deal for $8. Like the label. Classy with the mountain print. Dark color (as a Syrah driven wine should be ;-). Heady nose. Bit of alcohol mixed with dark berries and chocolate/mocha. Hint of stones in the rain too. (It’s 15% ABV!). Flavors are rich and hearty. More mocha-black coffee. Also something like black cherry and pluots. Angular. Plenty of bite. Both acid bite and tannin. The tannins are pretty integrated though. This hits the spot if your spot is food friendly Rhone-like red or GSM as we might say here in the USA. — a day ago

Clos Centeilles

Carignanissime de Centeilles Minervois Carignane 2016

the label is misleading because this wine is remarkable: southern variety with roasted aromas, liquorice, cloves, mocha, with a certain intensity, while being very light. Vinified in carbonic maceration: Fruity / floral explosion "on black fruit". The whole is original and delicious. Somewhere between Languedoc and Beaujolais. Served chilled around 12-13 degrees. It’s perfect for summer. — 8 days ago

Domaine du Mas Blanc (Docteur Parcé)

Hors d'Age Vieilli en Sostréra Banyuls Vin Doux Naturel


Mise de Septembre 2003. Tasted June 2020. Mahogany/red brick color. Acetone aroma that quickly blows off. Palate is racy, sweet/sour. Balanced and complex. Good with parma prosciutto or serrano ham, thai chicken satay with peanut sauce, and pad thai. — 2 days ago

Claude Serra

Villa Saint Roch Quartet Minervois Red Blend 2016


Lots of attractive ripe blue and black berry fruit, some mocha, liquorice and lavender aromatics along with a black currant pastel sweetness. I’m the mouth it’s very plush with soft tannin, low acidity, little hot on the finish but some very pleasurable ripe blueberry, plum and dark chocolate, kirsch notes on the finish. Plush stuff! — 11 days ago

Domaine de Fontsainte

Gris de Gris Corbières Grenache Gris Rosé 2018

Summer melons, fresh acid. Dry & inviting. It’s actually kind of a cool evening, so this might be better on a traditional hot summer night, but definitely doing the job. — 8 hours ago

La Luna Vin de Pays de la Côte Vermeille Red Blend 2013

This is truly my favorite wine. I just bought a case. So lightly effervescent. Even after being open for a day. Tangy and fruity and funky. Seems to pair well with so much because it isn’t so heavy or tannic. — 11 days ago
