Cave de Saint-Chinian

Rosemary George

Tasting: Languedoc

Deep colour. Some ripe spice – nicely rounded spicy fruit. Harmonious.

Andrew Jefford

Tasting: Languedoc

Deep black-red. Some sweetness and warmth of youth remains on the nose. On the palate, the wine is beginning to lose its flesh,but the process isn’t yet advanced and it is still engaging and lively, if no longer perfumed and poised.

Simon Taylor

Tasting: Languedoc

Very ripe aromas. A sense of just over-heated fruit and tarry oak. A tad brutal
