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.

  • B&g Chardonnay Pays d'Oc France 2012


    Rather neutral on the nose with faint aromas of green apple, toasty sweet wood and a hint of butterscotch. A touch sweet on entry and the butterscotch note makes that even more apparent as this turns a bit candied in the mouth with more of a carmel tone to the flavors than overt fruitiness. Some nuanced orchard fruit flavors that emerge on the p... Read More

  • Pure Viognier 2011


    A fresh and bright style of viognier. Quite aromatic with notes of apple along with white flower, white peach, and sweetgrass. More of the same on the palate with lots of mouthwatering acid. Lots of body and viognier mouth coating richness. My sweetie really enjoyed this one. I tried pairing it with a goat cheese and pineapple-guava/feijoa salad... Read More

    A blend of Cabernet, Cinsault, and Syrah Very floral basenotes greet the nose which turns a bit funky before gaining black fruit aromas. On entry this is quite bright bringing lots of fresh if slightly inky black fruit to the palate and showing decent earth and herb driven complexity along with little stiff tannins on the moderastly long finish...

    100% Cinsault Dusty, earthy, and a bit floral on the nose. This opens with a nice, bright hit of acid then turns a bit inky on the palate which is dry and decidedly tight showing off flashes of minerality and dusty light yet persistent tannins on the moderately long finish. 87pts Read More
