Le Secret des Capitelles' Saint-Chinian 2013

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought this bottle of wine from a shop in London [www.nicolas.co.uk] for £7.50. Saint-Chinian is an appellation created in 1982 for red and rose wines[and extended to white wines in 2005 although 85% are red] from 20 communes around the village of that name on the southern slopes of the Massif Central about 20 miles inland from Beziers in Languedoc. My bottle is from the Cave des Vignerons de Saint-Chinian co-operative group and consists of 65% grenache and 35% syrah aged in oak barrels.I started the bottle last night with my supper of roast pork.It is a dark and full-bodied wine with plenty of a blackberry and blackcurrant style fruit and some smooth and soft tannins but barely sufficient structure.I am not the only one to like this wine because it has won a number of awards including a silver medal at the Decanter magazine World Wine Awards in 2016

This is a co-operative founded in 1937 that now has 295 members and produces over 3 million bottles of wine a year.It is one of the leading producers of the Saint Chinian appellation.Situated between Narbonne and Beziers, “the land of Rugby”, on exceptional soil, surrounded with and protected by the Caroux and the Espinouse Mounts (as a backdrop), our winegrowers have been producing one of the greatest wines of the Languedoc region, the A.O.C Saint-Chinian, classified French top quality wine, since 1982. The North is the kingdom of the schist and sandstone soils dating from the primary era whereas. The South is composed of great calcareous formations gradually brought there by the sea during the second and third era. An extraordinary geological and climatic diversity gives Saint-Chinian wines a particular character which confers to each wine its own originality, and as such, an increasing quality. Read less
