A steal of a wine. Deep, dense in color. Nose showed grape, herbs and spice. Palate was med-full body, light on palate, prunes, black fruit, spice and a touch of earth. Drying tannins and super acidity. Need substantial food, but so good just by itself. Holding other 2 til next year to see development.

In reply to your original question, I'm haven't had many Languedoc wines as I've been developing my palate by experiencing wines from all over the world. I liked this wine a lot although I'm really a fan of Italian wines that are light in body, full or fruit and acidity, and just great food wines. Again, sorry for the confusion! Hope we can talk again.

I really liked this - for the first hour, then it closed down and nail polish aromas waded in. Seems like it's got the structure, balance and beauty to age, and the first glass was flat out delicious, but when it shut down, and withdrew, it was rather unforgiving, and not very pleasant. Would love to revisit anytime between 2022 and 2030.

Bottle was leaking from under foil and dripping on other bottles. Opened and cork had no wine around edges...it was leaking through the cork itself, a first for me. Poured to examine and wine was garnet and clear. No sign or taste of oxidation. Still has very present but soft tannins and nice acidity. Get some black cherry, blackberry and spice. Nice long finish. Forced to drink early in the afternoon....some days are just good days.

Nose was closed until wine warmed slightly and was still not near as impactful as the palate. Peaches and cream, granny smith apple, a bit of pear and passive minerality. Fantastic acidity and tartness and just right sweetness that balanced with the alcohol. I Buy this wine every year and it never disappoints. Would like to lay down some bottles but it never happens. Too luscious.

Decanted 1 hr. Returned to open bottle for 3 hrs. Medium weight and color. Blackberry, cocoa, spice on palate. Tannin were a bit overbearing but settled as time passed. Good for the price.
