Château de Flaugergues Red Rhone Blend Coteaux du Languedoc la Méjanelle 2007
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.Add winemaker's notes
External Reviews for Château de Flaugergues Red Rhone Blend Coteaux du Languedoc la Méjanelle
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.
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.
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.
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.
