Winemaker Notes

Very attractive deep garnet-red in appearance. The intense, yet delicate bouquet is a perfect harmony of red fruit aromas, hints of spice and mocha nuances. The attack is smooth, and on the palate the characteristic aromatic expression of the grape varieties, with the Syrah in particular is prominent in the oaked character. The wine presents integrated and silky tannins and the overall effect is perfectly balanced. It has a lingering finish, with a distinctive, appealing freshness.

Blend: 60% Syrah, 10% Grenache Noir, 30% very old Carignan (over 60 years)

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WE 88
Wine Enthusiast
Pronounced garrigue notes dominate the nose here—rosemary, menthol and lavender—with soft notes of red fruit in the background. More cherry and raspberry show themselves in the mouth. Medium weight with a gripping structure and medium-length finish.
WS 88
Wine Spectator
Well-focused raspberry and cherry flavors give this structured red from the south of France good lift. Finishes with suave, spicy notes of vanilla and sandalwood. Drink now through 2011. 1,000 cases imported.

Languedoc-Roussillon

View all wine

An extensive appellation producing a diverse selection of good-quality and value-priced wines, Languedoc-Roussillon is one of the world’s largest wine-producing region, spanning the Mediterranean coast from the Spanish border to Rhône. Languedoc forms the eastern half of the larger appellation, while Roussillon is in the west; the two actually have quite distinct personalities but are typically grouped together. Languedoc’s terrain is generally flat coastal plains, with a warm Mediterranean climate and a frequent risk of drought. Roussillon, on the other hand, is defined by the rugged Pyrenees mountains and near-constant sunshine.

Virtually every style of wine is made in this expansive region. Dry wines are often blends, and varietal choice is strongly influenced by the neighboring Rhône Valley. For reds and rosés, the primary grapes include Grenache, Syrah, Carignan, Cinsault, and Mourvèdre. White varieties include Grenache Blanc, Muscat, Ugni Blanc, Vermentino, Maccabéo, Clairette, Piquepoul and Bourbelenc.

International varieties are also planted in large numbers here, in particular Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. In Roussillon, excellent sweet wines are made from Muscat and Grenache in Rivesaltes, Banyuls and Maury. The key region for sparkling wines here is Limoux, where Blanquette de Limoux is believed to have been the first sparkling wine made in France, even before Champagne. Crémant de Limoux is produced in a more modern style.

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
