Languedoc Roussillon Red Blend

Château de Bagnoles

Majelus Cabardès Red Blend 2015

Intensely mineral nose. Nuthin but rocks. Maybe a little red fruit. Peppery and minerally in the mouth as well. Full and bone dry. I actually crave a wine like this occasionally, and fortunately tonight is one of those nights! — 17 hours ago

Domaine de Baron'Arques

Vignoble Baron Philippe de Rothschild 2015

Overpriced but very good right-bank Bordeaux mixed with the Mediterranean from Limoux. Mostly an excellent expression of Merlot, the Mediterranean provides the entire finish. A little sharp in the finish, but the Rothschilds clearly know what they are doing. I’d like to taste this vintage 5 years from now, as I expecting will be spectacular then. The $50 price tag is a little steep since I can buy a Bordeaux at that price. — 17 days ago

Domaine du Pegau

Plan Pegau Vin de France Red Rhone Blend

I’m equally proud and embarrassed for how cheap I found this on clearance - about $8. To be fair, Pegau is a very well respected CDP. I think this sees a discount in the portfolio because it’s built from multiple vintages. How many multi vintage reds do we see?

Deep dark rounded corners. Lush dark berries, cedar, and pencil with sprinkled salt and minerals with tannic inflection. I’ll take this again if I find it.

Clos Lalfert

Vin de Pays de l'Hérault Red Blend 2015

It feels like the wine is about to be quite Jammy but then it turns refined. Heavily tilted toward Syrah but adding more Cab balances this red. Food friendly. — 4 days ago

Domaine Gauby

Muntada Côtes du Roussillon Villages Red Rhone Blend 2015

what a success for this vintage. Such a pleasure to drink. Tasted like a young reserve des celestins 2007 that I recently had. — 14 days ago

Abbotts & Delaunay

Réserve Minervois Syrah Blend 2015

Delicious blend of Syrah, Carignan and Grenache, combined with more finesse and elegance than most SW Reds. Subtle use of oak, nice soft acidity and great length - will buy again! — 10 days ago

Domaine Anne Gros & Jean-Paul Tollot

Les Fontanilles Minervois Grenache Blend 2015

An excellent red blend, dark ruby coloured, full-bodied, fruit driven, nose is reminiscent of a barnyard, surrounded by the vegetal native French garrigue with hints of smoke and dark fruit. Paired with streak frites. — 25 days ago
