Roussillon Wine

The Roussillon is a giant wine-producing region in the south of France. With the Languedoc, it produces something like a quarter of France’s total wine output. Culturally, the region is Catalan -- it is just across the Pyrenees from Spain’s Cataluña region.  Some of the best wines from this region are dessert wines. Muscat de Rivesaltes has been famous since the 14th century. Maury and Banyuls are some otehr excellent dessert wines from the region. The Roussillon also produces plenty of ripe, southerly dry red wine, with Grenache acting as the main variety, and a little white.

  • Domaine Chiroulet Famille Fezas Cotes de Gascogne White "Terres Blanches" 2012

    Snoothrank:

    My first experience with Gros Maseng. Ripe melon and peach blends with apricot, grass, and elderflower. The slight fizz on the tongue, coupled with the obvious influence of Sauvignon Blanc, makes this perfect for an encounter at an outdoor cafe' and some oysters. Fabulous value. Read More

  • Chateau de Brau Cabardes 2011

    Snoothrank:

    20% Cabernet, 30% Merlot, 25% Syrah, 25% Grenache Earthy and spicy and immediately attractive on the nose with its complex blend of tobacco, carob, tomato leaf, stone and peppery red fruit aromas. Smooth and polished on entry, this is very well balanced if a little too supple for me, but still it's a delightful wine in the mouth. The flavors ar... Read More

  • Canonica Giovanni Barolo Paiagallo Premier 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Jammy red berry fruit pops with spicy depth and deep balsamic notes on a nose that already shows great integration. Fine ripe tannins greet the palate in this pretty big wine that retains great tension. There is a lot of body and backplate density here, though this is not terribly weighty. Already showing great wild cherry fruit up front accente... Read More

  • Sordo Barolo Gabutti 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Deep on the nose with an earthy base and smoky nuance laid over dark fruit with slightly medicinal, fine jerky, spicy, camphor aromas. In the mouth one finds good depth and complexity to the nicely presented wild cherry fruit which is clean and tight with very good tension. While not as firm as one might expect a wine from Serralunga to be this ... Read More
