Coteaux du Languedoc 2006
This wine is deep garnet in color, with fragrant aromas of blackberries, bilberries (European blueberries) and spices. The distinctive herbal notes commonly found in wines around the Mediterranean called garrigue—lavendar, sage, rosemary and wild thyme—speak to the wine’s regionality and terroir. The palate is well-balanced and clean, becoming round and full-bodied, with soft, ripe tannins and a long finish. Enjoyable now or age for up to five years in a cool cellar. This powerful and elegant wine is an ideal partner to Mediterranean dishes such as a lamb tangine with candied grapes and almonds of braised duck with mushrooms. Serve at cool cellar temperature. Open one hour before tasting.
"A wine that packs a stylish and classy punch. There is plenty happening on the palate with herbs and spices intertwined with black fruits and liquorice with soft but substantial tannins leading into a long finish. This has potential to continue for four or five years."

External Reviews for Coteaux du Languedoc
Intensives Rubin. Fruchtig-würzige Nase, Heidelbeeren, schwarze Kirschen und ein Hauch Menthol, feines Caramel. Samtiges Gaumenbild mit wiederum viel blau- und schwarzbeeriger Frucht, auch eine Spur Bittermandelessenz, dahinter wieder die typische Würze Südfrankreichs mit Thymian und etwas Wacholder, sanfte, reife Tannine, tolle Länge. Dekantieren wird empfohlen.
