This wine surely punched above its weight class. Big boy wine but a hell of a value

Delicious mouthful of wine. Black berry, creosote, oolong tea, mince meat. Fine long tannins. Solid.

Nice cheap date! Nose is a bit feral and meaty, with lots of stony minerality and dark blackberry skins. Almost Northern Rhône like. Full and relatively soft, with surprising acidity for the south, and lots of pure, savory flavors. Great value!

what do you get when two impressive #Burgundy winemakers team up? A lovely, supple red 🍷from....the #Languedoc! Domaine Anne Gros & Jean-Paul Tollot #Minervois "La Ciaude". Almost full-bodied, showing ripe plums with a whiff of minerals and violets. Viva le #collaboration 🇫🇷

Deep and brooding black and blue fruit jam, powdered sugar, lavender/violet, licorice, leather, stones, cinnamon, sage, white pepper. Rich with supple tannins. The most surprising part is the freshness and acidity of this wine.

Simple, not too much layer, a touch of smokiness, candied cherry, plum. Medium plus tannin. Ok, didn't stand out.

blinded it smelled like Rhone varietals from The Rocks Walla Walla ~ cool dark fruits quickly evolve into loads of crushed minerals, gravel, graphite & obsidian ~ needs air and/or time!
