Velours 2013 Languedoc Montpeyroux - Domaine L’Aiguelière


Velours - or Velvet - is a complex and refreshing wine and its name is exactly what you feel when tasting this wine. This red wine boasts wonderful aromas of ripe black fruit with notes of toast, chocolate and vanilla. Ageing in oak barrels provide a very nice complexity here, with both fat and fine tannins on the finish. This cuvée is an excellent choice for as a medium to full-bodied red from the south of France!

90/100 "A rich, mouth-filling wine with dark cherry, sweet tobacco and great minerality. There are plentiful smooth tannins and a bitter anise flavour, that endures well on the long finish."
