Minervois, Languedoc

Domaine Anne Gros & Jean-Paul Tollot

La Ciaude Minervois Carignane Blend 2013

This wine surely punched above its weight class. Big boy wine but a hell of a value — 15 days ago

Calvet

Cap d'Agde Côtes de Thau Rosé Blend 2018

Tastes of strawberries and peach, not too sweet, bit acidic. Easy to drink. Would bring to friends nights. — 9 days ago

Domaine Faillenc Sainte-Marie

Corbières Grenache Blend 2017

Listen. This is the kind of wine you expect a backwoods man to drink to accompany the wild game he just killed. The nose is underbrush, funk, mushrooms, and slightly rotting blackberries that just fell to the floor of the forrest....slight menthol quality as well. Mouthfeel is full, with black berry barnyard funk. At first, it had a spicy, hot finish... but after an hour, that steadily left the building. This is a delight of a wine. Complex and a pleasure all around. $14.... are u kidding?? — 18 days ago

Château d'Oupia

Minervois Oppius Syrah 2016

Dominant Syrah. Another wine of truth that respects the fruit and the terroir without trying to constrain them. Tasty, racy, intense nose with aromas of black fruits and chocolate. powerful mouth with notes of leather. powerful but well-melted tannins, silky texture. nice minty freshness. — a month ago

Château Lanégly

La Côte Languedoc Red Blend

Excellent pair with smoked turkey, and other fatty substances, such as nuts and coconuts. Very subtle in its compliments — 13 days ago

Mas Jullien

Coteaux du Languedoc 2005

Was frankly stunned by the elegance and freshness here, particularly given my own review of the ‘07 earlier this year, which was not nearly so giving. Vintage (and bottle) variation are real. In any case this was really beautiful and walked that delicate balance between refined grace and animal / rustic notes that I love, with firm but smooth tannins — 9 days ago

Les Vignerons De La Méditerranée

Mythique Languedoc Red Blend 2017

Domaine Ollier Taillefer

Rosé Les Collines Faugères 2018

"the geology and elevation give bright aromatics in fresh toothsome flavors to this rose wine, a hand-harvested blend of Cinsault 40%, Grenache 30%, Syrah 20%, Mourvedre 10%. It's rose but it's not your typical pinkish hue. It's paler, like wallpaper bleached by the sun. you will find hints of black fruit, a product of the razor sharp schist rock that makes up the top layer of soil in this region. aficionados of the language dark region instantly spot that telltale trace of garrigue - the bushy fragrant vegetation that grows on the Mediterranean." — 17 days ago
