Languedoc Roussillon, France

Clos Centeilles

Carignanissime de Centeilles Minervois Carignane

A very aerial expression of Carignan in carbonic maceration. The nose is almost intoxicating: black fruits, flowers, liquorice. The mouth is thin, light, silky. Crush again for this superb cuvée at a very reasonable cost. To drink a little refreshed.

Une expression très aérienne du Carignan en macération carbonique. Le nez est presque enivrant: fruits noirs, fleurs, réglisse. La bouche est fine, légère, soyeuse. Coup de cœur à nouveau pour cet superbe cuvée à coût très raisonnable. À boire un poil rafraîchi.

Cuvée Réserve Corbières Red Rhone Blend 2018

Value buster. Great balance of acid, fruit and texture. Lovely bouquet of ripe dark cherry, plum, faint garrigue, leather and licorice. Very smooth finish. Not a great five bean soup pairing, but is there really? 97 pt DAWA — 15 days ago

Coume del Mas

Quadratur Collioure Red Rhone Blend 2018

Like a GSM but take out the M and add Carignan. This thoroughly fulfills the winemaker’s yearning for freshness out of Toussillon. Smells of dark and bramble fruits but with pepper and spice and somehow I drink it and see the sea. — a month ago

Barrique Roussillon Syrah Grenache 2019

Beautifully decadent! And one of the few Roussillon wines I tried with a noticeable hit of oak on it and I was into it. The spice of oak was countered with both tart and fleshy fruit. Like lying in a bed so comfortable you just want to stay in it…and drink more wine. Go fig. — 22 days ago

Mas Des Agrunelles

Nicot Grenache Blanc Blend 2020

New release is actually 50% Grenache Blanc, 50% Marsanne… from languedoc but at a high elevation so surprisingly crisp and delicate, but still with a bit of an unbalanced floral edge that isn’t totally up my particular alley. — 4 days ago

Had this a couple of months ago, and my notes said time to look for more. Just happened to find it while looking for something else. Happy to have more, especially at an in-store special price. — 5 days ago

Faugères Millepeyers 2012

Funny story part 3. This is the wine my wife and I served to our guests during our wedding 7 years ago. I thought we had got rid of all the bottles but it turns out 3 remained for 7 years hidden in my wife's room at her parents'.
The nose shows some aging, including wet forest soil and mushrooms. There's a tiny bit of red fruits and a black pepper too. The palate is not bad though, there is still a massive acid backbone, a big bright red and black fruit all along, even to a sweet point, some tannins in the rear before rather long finish with fruit, that sweet touch and a bitter touch that seems to be due to aging. On the down slope but still enjoyable as is. And a good souvenir of a very good moment with family and friends.
