2005 Coteaux du Languedoc, Mas Belles Eaux "Les Coteaux"
91 points and a Smart Buy in the Wine Spectator: "This refined, elegant red from the south of France has an enticing aroma of pepper and sage, with flavors of raspberry, kirsch, red cherry and hints of garrigue. The pure, minerally finish ends on a meaty note. Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre. Drink now through 2012. 1,000 cases imported." (08/08) And, according to Wine Enthusiast: "Intense wine, full of ripe but juicy fruit, layering spices, herbs, soft tannins and fresh red berry acidity. Well-proportioned, well-balanced...the aftertaste is warm, rich, herbal." (11/08)
