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.
