Languedoc 2020 Fine Wine Case
This is Collioure in the Roussillon, from higher up the slope and away from the sea, thus with more concentration and dramatic flavour;. It is full-bodied and spicy and ready for food, and even better if decanted before serving.
This comes from one of the best co-operatives in France, small enough to be managed like a large domaine and capable of focusing on quality. This has spice and ripe-fruit flavours and is generous yet beautifully polished. A lovely red for when the weather turns cold.
Lovely red from near Pézenas in the Languedoc, where there is volcanic soil nearby, always good for growing grapes. Syrah and grenache here create a ripe-tasting, fruity red with plenty of character and interest that is especially good in 2020. A perfect winter warmer.
Syrah dominates but grenache and mourvèdre undoubtedly add complexity to this Languedoc cuvée of very old vines. A Rhône-like finesse and level of spicy fruit.
Maison Jaune is grenache-dominated with some syrah, aged in used barrels for a year. There is old-vine concentration here, richly textured, yet soft and long. Lovely now but has the ability to develop further in bottle.
This cuvée from the Languedoc brings together syrah and grenache, mostly from young vines, barrel-aged for a year, but without new oak. It is Rhône-like, balanced with a touch of spice and ripe black cherry. and utterly gorgeous in the 2020 vintage.
