Languedoc Roussillon Syrah

Domaine Le Casot des Mailloles

Rosé de ZAZA Syrah Rosé 2018

New label on the 2018... this is great; reminds me of my beloved Els Jelipins Rosé but maybe a little shorter... fresh, perfectly ripe raspberries. Running on rails 💪🏽 — 11 days ago

Domaine Bertrand-Bergé

Ancestrale Fitou Carignan Blend 2014

Brought home from the winery... dark color, with blackcherry reduction meets vanilla bean ice cream. Hints of leather and clove too. Rich and deep on the palate, but acidic freshness conveys. Dark berry and cherry fruit meet old cellar and tobacco character. Finishes smooth with acidity over tannin. Carignan, Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvèdre. — 5 days ago

Château Haut-Blanville

Élégante Red Blend

“A meaty red, with a brooding core of dried cherry and roasted plum matched with tar, black tea and olive undertones. Full, slightly chewy tannins support the herbtingedfinish. Syrah, Grenache Noir,Carignan and Mourvèdre. Drink now through 2025.” WS 91 — 10 days ago

Bastide Miraflors

Cotes du Roussillon Vieilles Vignes Syrah-Grenache Blend

Value wine. I think it would be hard to get better wine for $15. Lots of black and red berry, spice/ pepper. Good stuff — 12 days ago

Domaine Gilles Troullier

Boréal Vin de Pays des Côtes Catalanes Red Blend 2007

Really funky and barnyard-y out of the bottle, needed a little time to breathe. Lots of wild herbs and spicy notes, dry grass, then mint and violets. Chocolate undertones. — 21 days ago

Chateau de Vaugelas

Le Prieuré Corbières Syrah Blend 2017

Already very interesting at a young age; will buy a case to keep trying it over the next couple of years. Definitely worth the money (€5.50 in notoriously expensive Brussels supermarkets), so no need to hesitate on this one. — 11 days ago

Domaine Luc Lapeyre

VIN DE FRANCE (ROUGE) "Le vin à Boire" Syrah Blend

Great blend, lighter and juicier than you’d think, great for a fall day — 2 days ago

Domaine de Chamans (Hegarty Chamans)

Open Now Minervois Red Blend 2008

Wow- really great! Meaty and tobacco balanced with some red fruits- plum? Vegetal on the nose, lavender and fennel maybe. Tannins still give nice body but not overly strong or big. Also some cooking spices. Killer value at $8 when our friend wise bought from garagist and cellared. TY!! — 8 hours ago

Vignerons Catalan

Red Domus Roussillon Villages Syrah Grenache Noir 2015

Blackberries and blueberries, with some raspberries initially, which fade some after opening. Also salt, with hints of green bell peppers, caramel, and pork fat. Good acidity to balance, low-ish tannins, and very approachable. Wine Spectator said 90 points, and I have to agree. — 8 hours ago

Domaines des Creisses

Les Brunes Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2016

9.2

😯 having this in the mix with some great Burgandies and it’s a bit overpowering. Great wine. The kind I’d have everyday with a charred ribeye, but a bit much next to the burgundies and French fare. Check out the bottle. The owner of the place said and wrote on the bottle that this was his Chou Chou. I think it meant it was his favorite from his translation attempt. Super dense; blackberry, currant, pepper, and a little anise. In love with France. — 14 days ago
