This is not Macabeu, as Delectable indicates. It’s 100% Serine. Much like the Segna de Cor cuvée, it’s fresh, tense and incredibly detailed for a red from such hot, hardscrabble terroir. Smashing purity; all the great Syrah feels you get from the world’s masters of the grape. Extraordinary and fine. — 2 months ago
second wine from the same winery in st chinian which is a part of Languedoc-Roussillon wine region.
the first one was newer (2016) and felt too oaky.
dense brownish red 👀
wet soil, leather, tobbaco, oak related spices and hinted blackberies. and some 🍄👃
medium plus body.
tart attack first.
then a chewy spicy candy with hints of fruit👄
long 🎯 with the dirt taste lingering and then switched by firm but light tannins drying things up in a pleasent way.
excelent vfm (75 nis but in france)
had it for three days.
first day it shined with heavily umamied vegan 'bolognese' and pasta (based on mushroom variety and black lentils).
second day it got fruitier with not 100% traditionly made arancini.
third day had it on it's own.
it stayed the same wine throughout those days.
was always better when poured with an aerator pourer.
I'm wondering if it was a better wine than the other newer wine, or if it is time that balanced it.
the conclusion is clear:
i need to visit my friend in 🇫🇷 and drink some more. — 4 months ago

Very nice. Smooth.! Red berries, black currants, minty character, spice and a little refreshing character - and cherry/strawberry! — 4 months ago
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 day ago
Tobacco pencil lead and leather on the nose... medium-full weight on the palate with unfolding layers of tobacco, violets, leather and stewed plums on the palate. Keeps drawing me in for another sip .... tough to put this one down... wish I had more — a month ago
