Languedoc Roussillon Red Blend

Mas Champart

Vin de Pays d'Oc 2011

Dark ruby in color with a wide reddish /cloudy rim.

Fruity on the palate with blueberries, cherries, plums, currants, light wood, licorice, earth, spices, peppercorn, leather, tobacco, dark coffee and pencil lead. Really complex nose.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity and nice legs.

Dry on the palate with plums, cherries, blueberries, strawberries, wood, licorice, earth, light vegetables, pencil lead, spices, light vanilla, espresso, dark chocolates and peppercorn.

Nice length on the finish with soft tannins and red chili pepper.

This 9 year old Red Blend from France is peaking now. Showing a great nose and a spicy palate.

Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up. Better after an hour of airtime, and becomes earthier as it opens up.

Easy drinking with nice complexity. Spicy and fruit forward. Good by itself or with food.

Not from a great vintage, but very drinkable now, even by itself. An interesting and engaging wine.

A blend of Cabernet Franc, Carignan and Syrah.

14% alcohol by volume.

89 points.

Cote des Roses Languedoc Syrah Blend Rosé 2018

Vibrant and clean. Strawberries and lemon zest on the nose. Raspberry, lemon and sour apple flavors. Light on the minerality with an extremely smooth finish. Great QPR! — 15 days ago

Domaine Le Roc Des Anges

Segna de Cor 2017

Lots of aromatic complexity and finesse, the heat is deftly managed here and the alcohol kept in check. Freshness abounds, as do violets, lavender, sweet black berries, plums and garrigue. Mostly Grenache but the carignane and particularly the Syrah make themselves known. Velvety smooth texture — a month ago

Cotes Catalanes Vieilles Vignes Syrah-Grenache Blend 2017

Candied plums, black raspberry, spicy black pepper, and hints of rhubarb on the nose. Lush and smooth, with accents of tobacco and sage over plum and boysenberry fruit. Finishes in balance with length. Alcohol is kept in check. Great a QPR. — 5 days ago

Mas Janeil Cotes du Roussillon-Villages Grenache Blend 2016

Medium–light bodied. Really faint tannins and mellow acids. Violets, herbs, earthy. At first taste was afraid it was too fruit forward but it quickly developed into a drier, more savory profile. Was delicious with the French dinner at Le Crocodile. — 9 days ago
