Wow! Really intense. So intense, I corked it back up, and will give it another go tomorrow to see how the notes have changed. Plenty of Mocha/Plum, loads of that dirty terroir feel like good southern France wines have.

Languedoc, FranceChateau de Flaugergues Cuvee Sommeliere may be a tongue-twister but it's also a beautiful red wine gem! This rich red blend of 50% Grenache, 30% Syrah and 20% Mourvedre comes from the Gres de Montpellier sub-region of Languedoc, referring to the distinctive round pebbles of this terroir near the town of Montpellier. Situated on a hillside, the Mediterranean climate guarantees early ripening of grapes and a delicate aromatic finesse. The 2007 vintage was #50 in Wine Spectator's Top 100 Wines for 2010 with a 91-point rating! Chateau de Flaugergues Cuvee Sommeliere is dark ruby red in color with a gorgeous nose of blackberries, cassis, olives, leather, garrigue and spice. Full-bodied with a velvety texture and lively tannins, it is opulent and well structured on the palate and beautifully balanced to enjoy over the next 4-6 years. This red offers a seductive, lingering finish with hints of licorice and laurel. Enjoy Chateau de Flaugergues Cuvee Sommeliere as an ideal accompaniment to roast leg of lamb, skirt steak, daube provencal and grilled vegetables.

This blend of Syrah, Mourvèdre, Grenache, and Cinsault (40, 40, 10, 10) is the winery's flagship red - a very substantial wine with hearty flavors and meaty texture. The opaque blend of sweet black fruit and ripe berry at the core is accented by violet, anise, mineral, and tar/coffee elements lending a complexity that makes this wine both massive and interesting! The 2000 (what's left) was rated 92 by the Wine Spectator. The 2001 tastes even better - if that's possible.

This robust red from Southern France has been a consistent value for several vintages. A blend of Syrah and Mourvedre with a dash of Grenache, this is cheaper than a Crozes-Hermitage and it might just fool your palate into believing it is from our friends in the Northern Rhône. You'll find lovely flavors of dark berries, complemented by hints of bacon, olives, and mushroom. Mmm... sounds like a good topping to a burger. So naturally, this wine will pair well with a burger from your grill, no matter what the topping.

Full-bore, decadent red, with dark plum and blackberry flavors and bacon fat notes mixed in. Rich, deep and lush, with dark chocolate and espresso notes on the finish. Powerful. Drink now through 2005.

Gorgeous aroma of rose hips, currant and spice, with luscious flavors of dark plum, smoke and mocha. Plenty of baby fat in this, but powerful as well, with a long, structured finish of pepper, brick and mineral. Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. Drink now through 2012.

Dense, opaque red with copious amounts of Syrah and Mourvedre. Spicy, with black pepper and Mediterranean herbs underlying chewy blackberry fruits. Bold and assertive, a perfect complement to roast lamb and rosemary potatoes.

A powerful, well-structured red, with a strong minerally cast to the red berry and kirschlike flavors. Very focused, with intense milk chocolate and mocha notes driving the fresh finish. Drink now through 2015.
