Rosemary George

Tasting: Languedoc

Quite deep colour, firm structured nose. Quite rounded palate with a certain stucture, some dry spice andfruit and a tannic streak.

Andrew Jefford

Tasting: Languedoc

Deep opaque black-red. A rather strange aromatic profile,with sawdusty oak dominating. Stocky, sturdy palate with enough chunky fruit to hold it ground against the oak … just.

Simon Taylor

Tasting: Languedoc

Overt oak aromas. Chocolatey, extracted style – disappointing given there is plenty of concentrated fruit behind.
