Gérard Bertrand

Languedoc Syrah Grenache 2014

This one is a Grenache/Syrah Blend (based on the body - more Grenache). Not impressive right after opening, but given some time and air, really opened up pretty well. Ripe Mediterranean Cherry, Raspberry and Blackberry fruit flavors. Cinnamon, bacon and licorice on the nose. Minerals and herbs on the finish. Smooth tannins, light body and a really good value. Be patient with this one. — a day ago

Mas Barrau

Vin de Pays du Gard Cabernet Franc 2017

Pepper spices and Himalayan salty ness. Earth tones of water crest and teaberry. Some limestone tinges and slate. Dark fruits are not light and not heavy but mid pallet plum. Very different taste. — 33 minutes ago

Domaine Magellan

Languedoc Syrah Grenache Carignan

Smells like canned green Chile’s from New Mexico, and slow roasted portabello mushroom juice.

Delightful on the tongue with blue/black berry, hint of dragonfruit, pine. A Minerality that is a great accompanying back beat. Love the way the zing on this wine lifts the tannin from the tongue in an ethereal way and carries it, for a long,long finish.
Kevin Zraly would approve.
Another great wine at a great price. Perfect recovery from my 4000 ft worth of cycling ascent today.

A really nice wine from the Côtes du Brian area. Great fruit and acid. Earthy. Delicious with a nice thick lamb chop. Syrah, Cab, Cinsault, Carignan, Terret, Counoise, Mourvèdre, Grenache, & the kitchen sink. I’d like to try it when it’s got a couple more years in bottle. At Watershed @ The Owl — 7 days ago
