Les Darons Languedoc Grenache Blend 2015

#frenchwine #redwine #languedoc #frenchredwine the #grenache, #syrah and #carignan are having a fruity party in my mouth. The perfect wine to drink at this transitional time of the year. Notes of Strawberry and raspberry provide the foundation and topped off with a hint of minerals. Very affordable, 2 thumbs up for this one! 👍🏻👍🏻 #lesdarons well done #jeffcarrel — 12 days ago

Domaine Le Roc Des Anges

Segna de Cor Côtes du Roussillon Villages 2016

Achingly pure, filigreed and delineated...not the words you associate with Roussillon wine. But old vines, careful bio viticulture and the daring to harvest at the precise arrival of ripeness (13%) make for a modern-day version of iron fist in velvet glove. And on top of all that, the Catalan qualities shine through more and more with each successive vintage. Fraises, bramble, confits of tiny red fruits and the persistent haunt of black, low pH schist. Extraordinary. #rocdesanges #grenache #carignane #roussillon #catalonia — 2 months ago

Domaine Magellan

Pézenas Côteaux du Languedoc Grenache Blend 2015

Seamless, polished and chiseled Grenache/Syrah co-ferment. No brett; neither oxidative nor reductive. Impressively moderate (14%) alcohol for 2015; persistent and fine sandstone mineral qualities. All raspberries and almost plush. #magellan #grenache #syrah #pezenas #languedoc — a month ago

Domaine Jaume

Altitude 420 Côtes du Rhône Villages Vinsobres 2014

Sexy, fresh, Grenache-heavy. Fraises and framboises. Elegant, subtle herbaceousness, lower alcohol, not oxidative at all. Useful in the same way a lot of ‘08 southern Rhônes were. #jaume #vinsobres #rhone #grenache — 2 months ago

Côtes du Rhône Red Rhone Blend 2016

Wild fraises, kirsch, garrigue. Maybe the greatest in the history of these benchmark CDR. Has the concentration and length of most southern Rhône crus. Superior. #xavier #côtesdurhône #grenache — 4 months ago

Mamuthone Cannonau di Sardegna

Vintage 2015 - This wine from #grenache is lovely. Opens up with aeration, the smell of plums, spices and even some roses. A great balance, initially quite powerfull but friendly with my Chinese oriented Beef Paksoi. Great effort from #sardinia / the wine won Tre Bicchiere from the #gamberorosso — 5 months ago

Domaine du Colibri

Le Petit Tour Ventoux Red Blend 2016

First red made by Olivier Legranger, former enologist for Xavier Vins. Blackberry, mulberry, espresso. Displays an intensity and vigor that comes from a big hit of 60 y/o Carignan. Not your usual simple, grapey Ventoux! #domaineducolibri #ventoux #carignan #grenache #rhone — 2 months ago

Rocca Maura

Terra Ancestra Lirac Red Rhone Blend 2006

Vintage 2006 / made from #Grenache #Syrah #Mourvedre with 12 months on new oak barrels. Nice smell that gives more with aeration: spicy, impression of plums and chocolate. Smooth taste with good balance. Les vignerons de Roquemaure near Avignon are one of the impressive ‘cooperatives’ in France. — 2 months ago

Château Ollieux Romanis

Les Ollieux Romanis Corbières Red Blend 2016

Vacationing in Europe is all about intriguing wine discoveries. Here’s a #corbieres red blend of semi-dried #syrah , #grenache and #carignan. First pour reveals a rich nose of raisins with a touch of toasted oak and vanilla. It’s a full-bodied red and like many wines of France, I find it really improves after a day after uncorking. This wine held up well paired with lamb masala curry. — 4 months ago
