L'Ancienne Mercerie

Rosemary George

Tasting: Languedoc

Deep colour, quite a firm nose with quite a tannic palate. Quite restrained with some youthful depth and plenty of potential.

Andrew Jefford

Tasting: Languedoc

Dense, saturated black red. Gruff but compelling aromas of earth and underbrush. Very dense, textured and stony-schisty: a challenging but rewarding wine of great length and breadth. Liquid schist! Evidently fine vineyards and very low yields here. Just a little more aromatic charm would send it into the stratosphere.

Simon Taylor

Tasting: Languedoc

Appealingly refined cassis aroma. The palate is more extravagant, offering a wild gush of blackberries and spice, with impressive grip too. So expressive of the south, and is very much on the way up too.
