Domaine Guisset

Côtes du Roussillon Carignan Blend 2014

Stinky little nose of plant fat - olive oil, canola.

Good old school wine here, rustic, mild tempered fruit, nothing too loud or cloying, pepper, spice, hints of bark and grit. A hint of acidity at the tip and immediate sides of the tongue, with a nice finish.

La Soif du Mal Côtes du Roussillon 2017

Pure wild strawberries, damp earth, fresh, very little tannin, not much darker than a rosé. Needs a bit of a chill. Doesn’t seem like a bottle to age but very fun now! — 16 days ago

La Narassa Côtes du Roussillon Red Blend 2015

Expanded to fill the shape of the glass into which it was poured without complaint; made me feel better about myself; excellent companion to work that has to be done on sundays or children that won’t be quiet. — 7 days ago

Domaine Les Mille Vignes

Fitou Red Blend 2013

Continuing our foray into French wines... had this delightful at le coucou. More earth than what we typically like but very nice to accompany rich French food. Had a little more heat and spice than some of the mellower gamay. — 6 days ago

Guilhem Vin de Pays de l'Hérault Red Rhone Blend

40% Syrah, 30% Grenache, 30% Carignan. Bright black fruits on the nose. Dark plums, medium acid and body, lingering tannins and a mouth-coating chalkiness from the minerals. Very food friendly. — 7 days ago
