A great value from the Languedoc in any vintage. Open for two days. Accessible Mourvèdre with lots of dusty graphite minerality, leather, ripe raspberries, and fresh, sweet black plum.

Spicy, fruity, uncomplicated Mourvèdre. Solid for the price.

Pours sangria in color ON THE NOSE: raspberry, meat and smoke. ON THE PALATE: dark fruits with a hint of mineralogy and earthiness. Very soft and pleasing. Medium body with a long finish. This is a great wine just not as fruit forward as our New swords palate is use to.

Black cherry cola, freshly smashed herbs, chalky chewy soft tannins. Delightful bargain.

Inky deep garnet color. Great "sauvage" aromas of garrigue, plum, blackberry and herbs. Well-balanced acidity on the palate, very clean with moderate tannins and a tight finish. Gamy and appealing

The Mo'vèdre the better! Super tasty, chewy black fruit, garrigue, smooth with depth and length. Pic Saint Loup continues to prove its rank among the top crus of southern France.

A cool find while on travel in the DC area. Damn nice old vine Mourvèdre from the LongDock - from 50-60 year old vines to boot. A tasty, balanced marriage of overripe raspberry, old spice, sea breeze, and violet with hints of leather trying to sneak out. Moderate tannins all wrapped up in a nice violet. Buy this wine!

My first experience with Mourvèdre! This is an enjoyable bottle at a moderate price point. Love the inky dark color and it has a satisfying finish.
