Languedoc Roussillon Syrah

Château Maris

Les Planels La Livinière Syrah 2015

Normally I am not a big fan of Minervois or Fitou wines but this one is a melted dark chocolate with cherries and black berry bomb! I think it is also due to the great hot 2015 vintage which delivers like great Barossa type wine! Lacks of mineralogy but very new world type. Silky tannins, fruit forward with 30 second finish. To try. — 11 days ago

Sous les Cailloux des Grillons Syrah Blend 2017

2017 vintage. Beautiful electric magenta hue. Meaty, gamey, earthy, plum, but balanced by generous acid. Could use just a touch more time in bottle for flavors to integrate, but outstanding wine #organic — 3 days ago

Château de Marmorières

Les Amandiers La Clape Coteaux du Languedoc Syrah Blend 2014

Notes of ripe cherries on nose but very little fruit on the palate. Baking spices on the nose. Moderate oak tannin. Very smooth. Somewhat herbal quality but not overly earthy or smoky. Both a real wine and easy to drink. I’m a fan — a day ago

AG nailed the notes for this wine, so I won’t duplicate. But on the nose and palate, I also detect kirsch liqueur, hints of licorice and anise. This wine has not moved since it was bottled. It presents with purity and power. Easily possesses another 20 years of runway ahead of it. Sheer ecstasy in a glass. My favorite Rhône producer. — 2 days ago

Old Vine Syrah 2017

Really enjoyed this red! This wine was a bit out of our comfort zone but so glad we tried it. We had it with a tomato and courgette risotto and it went so, SO well. It is a very fruity, summery red, but not in the way that it lacks depth. Very tasty, smooth with a nice bite and aftertaste - highly recommend this if you tend to shy away from fruity wines and typically go for heavy malbecs like we usually do, it’s made us want to try more reds like this 😍 — 16 days ago

Les Darons Languedoc Grenache Blend 2015

Good QPR. A well-balanced 80% Grenache with a derp, dark color, elegant with earth tones. Recommended. — 6 days ago

Domaine Jean-Louis Tribouley

Orchis Vin de Pays des Côtes Catalanes Grenache Blend 2013

100% biodynamically-grown old vine Grenache. Fair amount of brett imposes on an otherwise interesting nose of deep, tangy black raspberry fruit. Some nice clean, stony minerality too. Surprisingly for a Grenache, you can also sense in the nose that the acids are very bright, and the sip confirms this. Dense, very tangy, and with some nice stoniness, but I find the brett a little much (others may not mind as much). Drying, mouthwatering finish. Can’t believe the acids on this. — 9 days ago
