An interesting wine - I haven’t had many from the Languedoc region. A blend of 40% Syrah, 40% Mourvèdre, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Counoise. It is the presence of Counoise in the blend that results in this wine being labeled as a Vin de Pays as opposed to AOC Coteaux du Languedoc. Now to the wine itself - some barnyard, animale also gravel and violets. A lot going on. This Languedoc wine was interesting and new. If tasted blind I would have said Southern Rhone. More earthy and savoury than fruit driven on the medium weight palate. Perfect balance with the oak influence totally integrated. One of the 1001 Wines and a wine I would be happy to try again in the future. Barb loved it.

This is stupidly complex. Not cheap but it has so much style and personality. Amazing wine. Aromas of wet tobacco, herbs and bright fruit. The young vintages taste well aged and the old vintages taste young. This is dreamy

Very rich and full, strong tannins but with a silky texture, keeps some freshness and elegance too, gorgeous and built for the long haul. 92-93

92 now with 94 potentially down the road. Still a baby but already has nice layers. Lots of acidity and freshness...

Not to much words, for me this wine challenges the LaLa’s from Guigal. Great wine, great dinner with the one and only.
