"Aromas of coffee bean, sweet tobacco and ripe fruit lead to a medium- to full-bodied palate, with soft tannins and a medium finish. A little loosely knit on the palate. The second wine of Carignan. Best after 2009." – James Suckling 86points

As we spend time this summer exploring new wine regions it’s worth pointing out that these endeavours need not be expensive. Of course some of the best discoveries are those that are easy on the wallet. Wines that over deliver at their price points and expand our understanding, and enjoyment of the fruit of the vine. Case in point: the Languedoc... Read More

Old vine Carignan, certified Organic by Ecocert AB, blended with 20% Certified Demeter Biodynamic Grenache. A touch stinky on the nose with natural aromas of barnyard and dry grasses. Smooth in the mouth with early mineral notes and hints of chocolate and black cherry skin. While relatively lean and focused this turns a touch chewy on the midpa... Read More
I have never had a bottle from this Chateau so thought I would give it a try. It received a medal from the Concours Des Grands Vins De France and I usually enjoy many of the wines that compete there. This red is a blend of 35% Syrah, 30% Grenache, 25% Carignan, & 10% Mourvedre. Sounds interesting enough. A nice ruby red color in my glass and not... Read More
