Expert.pngWhat experts say  

90-92/100 "Comprised of 74% Syrah, 14% Grenache and the balance Mourvedre, the 2011 Languedoc St Georges d’Orques Cuvee Quetton Saint Georges is a smoking barrel sample that does everything right. Loaded with creme de cassis, black raspberry, earth and mineral tinges, this beauty is medium to full-bodied, rich and layered, with a full, fleshy mid-palate and rocking length on the finish. Spending a full year in 25% new French oak followed by another year in tank, it’s a gorgeous effort that should drink nicely for over a decade." (previous vintage)

Highly recommended for Languedoc amateurs, this is...

Le Parc is the absolute cherry on the cake. Yes, it is an expensive Languedoc wine, but we have never tasted anything as such in the region. Le Parc is a huge, full-bodied and explosive red, made of 100% Syrah coming from a specific parcel. It shows an incredibly concentrated nose of roasted blackcurrant, cassis and eucalyptus. The palate is really...

This is an amazing but unusual rosé from Languedoc. It is light and fresh as a Côtes de Provence - which is definitely what we love for a rosé. Ideal for an afternoon in the sun or even better, on a barbecue. Summer is not quite there yet, but you will be happy to have a few bottles ready as soon as the temperature starts coming up!

The Château de l’Engarran has been in the same family for years and is managed by two sisters - Diane and Constance - with a very feminine touch! Terres de l’Engarran is a lovely Merlot-based Languedoc, easy to drink with notes of red fruit on the palate. A touch of mint and spices on the finish immediately call for another sip. Perfect with grilled meat...
