La Féline Minervois-La Livinière Syrah Blend 2019

Beautiful Southern gourmandise. Grenache in front with its notes of black fruits, coffee, chocolate. Syrah brings its lot of pepper, violet, typical menthol, and Carignan, thyme and garrigue notes. The 14 degrees of alcohol are absolutely unfeeling. It’s very good, it’s very soft.

Belle gourmandise sudiste souple et soyeuse. Grenache devant avec ses notes fruits noirs, café, chocolat. La Syrah apporte son lot de poivre, violette, menthol typique, le Carignan, du thym, des notes garrigue. Les 14 degrés d’alcool ne sont absolument pas sentir. Ça se boit très bien.

Domaine De La Cendrillon

Inédite Corbières Syrah Blend 2016

2016 vintage. Inédite, Corbières rouge. Another brilliant wine from this excellent estate. From a plot named "Les Amandiers" with 30 years old vines. A blend of Syrah (50%), Grenache (35%) and Mourvèdre (15%). Aged 18 months in 20 hl and 225 l French oak. Delicate extractions and low yields lead to amazingly refined, fresh and complex wine with velvety tannins and a long spicy finish. Terrific value. Highly recommended. Abv. 14,5%. — 14 days ago

Petit Manseng (40%), Grenache Gris (18%), Grenache Blanc (12%), Marsanne (7%), Roussanne (7%), Albarino (7%), Verdejo(6%)and Macabeu (3%). A part is vinified and aged in 13hl Austrian wood barrels, the rest in stainless steel. Light yellow. Attractive nose with lemon, peach, fresh pineapple and flowers.

Cité de Carcassonne Cabernet Franc 2018

Raspberry, tobacco and spice on the nose. Brambly berry fruit with a subtle green overtone. Flavors fade a bit past the mid-pallet. Full bodied but soft tannins and reasonable balance. — 9 days ago

Vin de Pays de l'Hérault White Rhone Blend 2013

What a sad sad news. Yesterday Laurent Vaillé of Grange des Pères died at the age of 57. A big loss. Today, this briljant 2013 White deserves the perfect score. RIP Laurent. Thank you for all the beautiful moments thanks to your wines. — 16 days ago
