2009 Domaine Grès St Paul "Antonin" Coteaux du Languedoc (Previously $17)

SKU #1080982 90-91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Tasted from tank, the Gres Saint Paul 2009 Coteaux du Languedoc Antonin features beet root along with dark cherry and black raspberry in a rich, low-toned and firmly tannic display. Hints of game are also detectable and will doubtless grow with time in bottle. Crushed stone, fruit pit, and salt lend cut and saliva-inducement to its finish much as in the corresponding 2008. (Both wines are also just under 14% alcohol.) There is plenty of primary juiciness here which Salasc attributes to the tempering advantages of the vineyards’ breezy, maritime exposition, as well as greater density and impressive grip, but I doubt that there will ever be the elegance or interactive complexity of the 2008, and I would plan on drinking this over the next 4-6 years." 80% syrah, 10% grenache, 10% mourvedre.

Very serious wine here. A delicious mixture of dark and red fruits, surprising richess and lots of spice. This wine will jsut get better over the next year.

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
