After the phylloxera crisis, those extremely hard to work vineyards laid forgotten for a long time. But now they are being rediscovered by the best producers and sure enough, they give us the best grapes in the Languedoc. Rich and meaty, this wine will give you pleasure now or for years to come. Definitely a wine for the table. Think Andouilletes, Chile con Carne, Roasted pork...

A Corbieres not to miss. This has everything that I want in a Rhone blend; dark but pure fruit, earthy, spice, mineral, texture and length. If you can hold onto it for another year or so, this will get better and better.

Old vine Mouvedre and Carignan are simply not found in the States very often, and that is something of a shame in my book. The Carignan supplies lift to the Mouvdre with flashes bright fruit that intertwine with the darker notes of the Mouvedre and Grenache. Powerful but not abrasive, this full bodied wine would play the perfect escort to any hearty fall dish.

This wine should not get lost in the vast ocean of wine that the world has to offer. It is a treat from Corbieres that has layers of flavor and complexity. At first, there are nice aromas of fruit and herbs,and then a nice mouth filling body that is full of fruit and hints of earth and minerals. Decant one hour before drinking and you will have a wonderful wine to enjoy.

100 year old Carignane seems to brighten up the darker Mourvedre fruit here. Rich, darker berry fruit aromas, with some endearing rusticity, leads to more of the same on the palate. Flavors are both persistent and fresh, especially given the amount of Mourvedre in the blend. Tasty.

Deep nearly opaque violet color with dark fruit, and herbal aromas. On the palate, balanced, medium-bodied with fine grained well integrated tannins, good acidity, and bright, persistent black currant, dark raspberry, mineral and spice flavors. Medium finish. Nice value @ $20!

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity.
