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.

  • Chateau d'Esclans Whispering Angel Rose 2012

    Snoothrank:

    This lovely rose wine has a racey nose of acidic red cranberry and even strawberry sugar; the entry is balanced, if slightly bitter, with more strawberry on the medium finish. A superior rose with a rare gravity of character. Let's say 90 points... Read More

  • Laurent Miquel Viognier Nord Sud 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Bottom line: Rich, luscious, and delicious. Milk chocolate and tropical fruit with whipped cream on top mingle with pineapple and lime. The sweet, delicate finish turns into pink and orange fruits on the palate. Clearly, this grape has an affinity for oak and late summer nights. A+! Read More

  • Laurent Miquel Viognier Nord Sud 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Slightly spicy, honeyed aromas with good floral notes. Nice and juicy, a little oily with a touch of cream, this wine is just enough bite to grab hold of and enough fruit to keep it interesting. For 14 bucks it's a great value. Read More

  • Château d'Anglès la Clape Classique 2009

    Snoothrank:

    This unrecognized "cru" from Languedoc is a steal (if you are so fortunate as to find it). The bouquet is heavily influenced by the non-Grenache components - there is coffee, wild black current, a hint of chocolate candy - and the palate is pushed by a solid tannic structure with red currant and cherry on the finish with that ubiquitous coffee....

  • Michel Chapoutier les Vignes de Bila Haut Cotes du Roussillon Villages 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Tight on the nose with bright aromas of black fruits nicely framed by sweet baking spices and layered over dried herbal and floral notes. With air this picks up some strawberry rhubarb as well. A touch soft on entry and broad in the mouth, this is chewy and a bit dense on the palate with attractive black and blue berry and plum fruits but the f... Read More

  • Domaine Lafage Tessellae Old Vines Cotes du Roussillon 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Jammy and rich on the nose with lots of almost grapey, black berry fruit thats framed by hints of truffle, black spice and cardamon. Smooth and plush in the mouth, theres enough acid to keep this bright on the palate but this is a rich and seamless feeling wine. The fruit has a nice clear quality to it, transparent wild strawberry and wild berri... Read More

  • Domaine la Tour Boisee Minervois 2011

    Snoothrank:

    A bit smoky on first whiff with slightly spicy and earthy aromas of cherry and date fruit on the nose. Big on entry and moderately firm with fine backing acids and rounded tannins lending this body and richness on the palate. The flavors show a fine blend of black cherry fruitiness with leather and dried herbal notes along with late arriving mu... Read More

  • Coppo l'Avvocata Barbera d'Asti 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Very fruity on the nose and spicy with softly herbal and dried spice notes framing gentle and dusty red berry fruit. A bit chewy early on the palate and with plenty of acidity, this is moderately tannic and has a bit of an stringent nature to it. Theres a slightly jammy quality to the red fruit on the palate, and through the long and slightly wa... Read More
