Languedoc Roussillon Grenache

Château de Saint-Cosme

Little James Basket Press Vin de Pays d'Oc Grenache 2021

So delightful!
These rating scales don’t do justice to wonderful wines like this one. If you are looking for a 90+ banger of a wine, then you’ll miss the joy you get from this kind of straightforward pure expression of south Rhone Grenache. It’s so flexible and friendly with so many foods.

If you’ve been drinking $10 wines, then step up to this one and enjoy its clean friendly flavor. If you’ve been snobbishly drinking $25+ wines, then you’re also missing the simple joys of a great table wine like this.

Daumas Gassac

Mas de Daumas Haute Vallée du Gassac Blanc White Blend 2020

Remarkable peach and kumquat flavors So exotic yet so bright, mineral, and acid. Almost completely dry but with a generosity and texture reminiscent of a sweet wine. One of my favorite whites of all time. Just stunning. — 15 days ago

Blanc Coteaux du Languedoc Grenache Blanc Blend 2018

New to me. Southern French blend with a distinct marine note. Leans toward the tropical. Interesting and I’ll pay more attention to the next bottle. — 8 days ago

Château de Vissandre

Pézenas Languedoc Shiraz Grenache 2018

Outstanding traditional Southern France Red Blend. Syrah (65%), Grenache (25%) and Mourvèdre (10%). Dark purple color. Very plush aromas and flavors of dark/black fruit (especially black cherry) with hints of tobacco, vanilla, leather, tar and baking spices. Extremely dry and savory on the finish. Medium bodied with a soft mouthfeel. Nice balance of tannins and acidity. Terrific value! — 21 days ago

Rivesaltes 1979

One of the wines I opened for my annual WWC hosting.

Very unique. Mostly Grenache based. Came across as a tawny port and Sherry combo. Fairly light ruby in the glass, with a whiff of Sherry/oxidized notes right off the bat. Lots of old fig, graham cracker, cinnamon and crème brûlée. Not heavy or rich on the palate…there is a floral aspect to it, with candied red fruits too. Doesn’t have the depth or complexity of a great vintage port, but it showed extremely well for its age and still paired well with Stilton cheese and candied oranges!

Stilton. Yuk. I can’t handle it.

Château l'Ermitage

Sainte Cécile Costière de Nîmes Blanc White Rhone Blend 2019

Such a nice cheap-o white! 70% Roussanne, 20% Viognier, 10% Grenache Blanc. Nose has ripe yellow orchard fruit, melted butter, some just-cracked stone, and a waxy/floral note. Round and soft and full in the mouth. Acids are low but the purity of the fruit and stone carry it. — a month ago
