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 Lafage Bastide Miraflors Vieilles Vignes Cotes Catalanes 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Robert Parker nailed this one: the 2013 Bastide Miraflors ( a beautiful name for a wine which gives the very approximate meaning of a farm with a view of flowers) has an inviting Syrah nose of cherries, wet earth and bell heather with a light entry of more cherry, some old cigar box and a dollop of sugar. Perhaps due to the vintage, the wine is... Read More

  • Chateau d'Oupia Minervois Rose 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Tried it at a local bistro. All four of us enjoyed it. Medium body with nice bouquet, little fruity but really an excellent value. We ordered a case through a local distributor. Both vintages 2012 & 2013 were great. Read More

  • Abbotts & Delaunay Languedoc Reserve 2013

    Snoothrank:

    This Languedoc white leans on the aromatic varietal Vermentino for backbone and on the nose presents cola nut and a miscellany of garden flowers. On entry, there are tisane and black tea flavours associated with Roussanne and Marsanne along with greater viscosity and mouth-feel than Vermentino alone can provide. Quite thirst-quenching and soft... Read More

  • Gérard Bertrand Tautavel Grand Terroir 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Black and blue fruits on the nose that match the entry. Fruit forward with good acidity that turns to strong tannins and a long finish.Quality wine. Read More

  • Chateau Saint Roch Vieilles Vignes 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Really nice Cotes Du Roussillon blend of grenache blanc and marsanne. The nose has ripe apricot, a bit of flint and some yeast. On the tongue is fig, golden delicious apple, a touch of salinity, nice acidity and a medium finish. Read More

  • Not totally different but still not an every day wine - tonight we had this ... this really nice Cotes du Roussillon blend of grenache blanc and marsanne. The nose has ripe apricot, a bit of flint and some yeast. On the tongue is fig, golden delicious apple, a touch of salinity, nice acidity and a medium finish.  We get a good bit of the stuff...
