Once tethered with the not so endearing epithet "the wine lake" the Languedoc–Roussillon has emerged in this more modern era as a wonderful new land of opportunity, a brilliant source of warmer weather Mediterranean varietal and multi-varietal wines, the better examples among the great wines of Europe and, that said, the world. And, after all, the Languedoc-Roussillon remains among the most splendid of sources for value in fine wines.

2015 Corbières Rosé Domaine Saint‑Eugénie
Domaine Sainte Eugénie is located within the district of Fontfroide in Corbières in the foothills of the Pyrénées along the Mediterranean coast. The clay/limestone/pebble soils along with the dry weather, warm and sunny climate here combine to allow for quite the fine winegrowing environment. Domaine Sainte-Eugénie Corbières Rosé is produce of a predominance of Cinsault, together with a splash of Syrah and Grenache. Limpid light rose red with glints of sunset orange and blue in color; inviting aromas suggest a kiss of red berry, a waft of watermelon and Corbières mineral-laced soil and spice, and leaving just the right amount to the imagination; ample in body, with surprising nerve and depth of flavor on the tongue and a delicately minéral intensity, mouthwatering and fresh to the finish. Superb value, too!

Produce of 40% old vines Carignan, 30% Grenache, 30% Syrah, the 2015 vintage is a lovely deep ruby in color with aromas of fleshy wild berries and parched Languedocian earth; juicy, fleshy, succulent on the tongue at first, then gaining in power and structure and revealing itself full and dry and quite potent for a wine that sells for so modest a price.

2014 Pic Saint-Loup Grand Terroir Gérard BERTRAND

Pic Saint-Loup is located near a visually dominating mountain peak of the same name in the departement of Hérault in the Languedoc-Roussillon and is lately increasingly renowned for its fine winegrowing terroir. Flanked by limestone cliffs, with optimal sunlight exposure and light winds, these soils produce fine, concentrated wines with elegant notes of ripe dark fruits, an almost irresistable blackcurrant and bramble along with savory hints of thyme and spice; fine, light on its feet onto the tongue with a building richness and reprise flavor-wise of those first Mediterranean whiffs; then gently Languedocian sunshine warm and long on flavor to the finish. Delicieux!
