Côte Dorée 2013 Languedoc Montpeyroux - Domaine L’Aiguelière

If you are a fan of complex reds from Languedoc, you will love the Côte Dorée. Aromas of red fruit dominate here, although Syrah makes most of the blend. A very round red wine, smoother than many of its peers. Really beautiful bottle to discover. Hint: Taste it blind with the Côte Rousse, you'll spend a memorable night!

91/100 "An enticing nose with mocha, cocoa and truffle over ripe, purple fruit. Uncompromising and ambitious with well handled new oak and touches of cinnamon spice. Clean and long."

It is rare to see such elegance in Languedoc, which is why some might compare this Côte Rousse to a Côte Rôtie. After a slow vinification, wine is aged carefully in oak barrels until the perfect moment. We loved its spicy notes, the concentrated...
