Domaine Brenac

Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Well-crafted #languedoc #cabernetsauvignon from Domaine Brenac. It may very well be marketed towards US-drinkers with the varietal labeling but that doesn’t mean it’s not good. It takes some time to open up to reveal solid bramble berry nose, good concentration and classic French balance of fruit against acidity plus some hints of peppery spice on the finish and fine tannins. Excellent QPR on this one from #wsjwineclub — 4 months ago

Mas des Cabres

Terres d'Aspères Syrah Grenache 2013

Most unusual wine in a while. Cow manure, cat litter and blackberry aromas, which eventually mellowed out. Bold acidity and berry finish. Super complicated but still enjoyable through all the shenanigans! #languedoc #France — 3 years ago

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 — 2 years 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 — 2 years ago

Château l'Euziere

Coteaux du Languedoc Pic St. Loup Syrah Blend 2012

Vintage 2012 / My marriageday. So better choose a wine that suits my Love. It does! This #picsaintloup has a shy smell. At 6 years old it has something of everything: spicyness, cherries, minerals. But it is the velvety taste, soooo smooth, that blows you off position. 14 procent alcohol but not disturbing. #languedoc rules. #syrah — 2 years ago

Château Maylandie

Villa Ferrae Corbières-Boutenac 2014

Friday night, what should I pick up at the neighborhood PCC? Why, this little Languedoc red blend, and on sale? Well, ok then! This bottle is 40% Grenache, 30% Carignan, 30% Syrah from the Corbières-Boutenac AOC, with the Boutenac terroir receiving AOC status in 2005. The wine region is in the south of France, nestled between the Mediterranean and the Spanish border with 95% of the wine coming out of Languedoc, and Corbières especially, being red wine. This specific winery has been operating since 1987, with grapes growing on and off on their farms since Roman times. The bottle has a sticker that indicates a gold medal place in the 2016 Concours des Grands Vins de France à Macon - not sure I'm on board with that, however paired with a rich spinach risotto with crispy leaks, it served its purpose nicely. ~$17 | #languedoc #corbieres #redblend

On the eyes: Deep, concentrated, ruby red, med stain, med tears, no gas/floc.

On the nose: Burnt orange peel, red plum, raspberry, bit of vanilla, nutmeg. Med alcohol.

On the tongue: Med+ tannin, med+ acid, med alcohol, med body, a bit chewy. Bright raspberry, ripe plum, a bit of tobacco, a bit peppery, good mineralty. Not much of a finish - but quite pleasant with food. Decant and let it open!
