Château de l’Engarran 2012 Coteaux du Languedoc Grès de Montpellier


Château de l'Engarran is the flagship cuvée of the estate, made from different parcels. A complex bottle, more typical from a Languedoc red, with a bigger structure and elegant tannins (33% of the cuvée is aged in oak barrels), aromas of ripe black fruit and spices, and a nice freshness at the same time. Highly recommended for Languedoc amateurs, this is just an outstanding wine!

Gilbert-Gaillard.jpg

89/100 "Faint mature highlights. Ripe, distinctive nose driven by jammy stone fruit and spice with a touch of humus and undergrowth. Mouth-coating, profound palate with delicious, genuine aromatic nuances. Sensual substance imparts suppleness."
