Languedoc Roussillon Red Blend

Maxime Magnon

Métisse Corbières Cinsault Blend Rosé 2018

Every cherry and strawberry candy from childhood. Candy lipstick, Twizzlers, red Starburst, cherry Jolly Rancher. In the best way. But also all grown up - peppery green moss, thyme, lavender, spiced orange. A serious, complex, powerfully intense Rose’ for the main course. — 7 days ago

Puech Noble Coteaux du Languedoc Red Blend 2017

The nose is floral, violets, a touch of pepper and some strawberries, a nose very reminiscent of Syrah. The mouth is medium bodied, fresh, the tannins have a soft texture and overall the wine has very good balance. Great value for this 2017 from a very good producer of Cote Rôtie that also has this Languedoc domaine. Un nez de fraises, floral aussi, violettes et une touche poivrée. La bouche, qui a une belle fraîcheur, de corps moyen avec des tannins assez veloutés est délicieuse avec un bel équilibre. Beau rapport qualité prix. — 12 days ago

Domaine de Bila-Haut Occultum Lapidem Côtes du Roussillon Villages Latour de France Syrah Blend 2010

Now this is one of those “Robert Parker Darlings”. Still ripe, rich, chewy... but definitely one note. Ten years old... almost sweet, very little acidity...and frankly, boring. Glad I’ve only got one of these... and Monday Red sauce pasta...just shows that buying by critics numbers is a slippery slope. — 16 days ago

Les Vignes du Domaine du Temps

La Combe du Temps Syrah Grenache 2017

I attended the Raw Wine Fair the last two years and these wines always made an impression in the large tasting format. I was able to bring back a bottle from Paris (I never saw them in the states) and am happy I did. The spicy, aromatic red fruit (and it’s velvety texture) from the Grenache speaks most assertively here, while the Syrah stalks quietly in the background. Nice bottle enjoyed with a spicy dry-rubbed and grilled NY strip. Outclassed by the Cantina Giardino aglianico if I do say so. — 10 days ago

Château Fontareche

Vieilles Vignes Selection Corbières Carignan Blend 2018

Rich smells of milk chocolate, ripe blackberries brambles and fresh blueberries, with hints of white mushroom, tart cherry, and saltwater taffy. Medium-light weight, deep opaque red with rich oily umami mouthfeel and light red fruits like cherry and plum on the palate, and soft well polished black tea tannins lingering nicely on the finish. Very interesting red, like a poor-mans-Ho-Brion (😉), would probably go well with tomato-cream sauce dishes and grilled meats or great by itself. Great value — 6 days ago

Cyriaque Rozier

Château Fontanès 2018

40% Syrah, 20% Grenache, 20% Mourvèdre, 10% Cinsault, 10% Carignan from Languedoc- Roussillon. Easy drinking with big flavors of dark fruit of black currant, black berry, and spicy root beer-like flavors — 8 days ago

Languedoc Vin Blanc Picpoul Blanc Blend

Nice structure for a GSC blend. Red fruit and enough tannin to hold your attention. — 13 days ago

Petit Taureau Côtes du Roussillon Red Blend 2017

I just don’t understand how people rate this wine so low. This is absolutely perfect for what it is, even northern Rhône in character which I find to be a great trick in winemaking to transcend the often cloying southern Rhône character. This has energy, freshness, lift, it’s clean, and perfect balance of fruit and a dash of earth. Great food wine. Doesn’t need food. — 7 days ago

Came along nicely over these years! Good sense of mature dark fruits and earthy notes that went well with somewhat spicy pork with paprika from Instapot. — 8 days ago

D 66 Carignan Blend

Gobs of great fruit. Hot at open, then balanced after one hour. Dark flavor profile. Tanins are a little rough, but still very beautiful and enjoyable. — 13 days ago
