Roussillon Wine

The Roussillon is a giant wine-producing region in the south of France. With the Languedoc, it produces something like a quarter of France’s total wine output. Culturally, the region is Catalan -- it is just across the Pyrenees from Spain’s Cataluña region.  Some of the best wines from this region are dessert wines. Muscat de Rivesaltes has been famous since the 14th century. Maury and Banyuls are some otehr excellent dessert wines from the region. The Roussillon also produces plenty of ripe, southerly dry red wine, with Grenache acting as the main variety, and a little white.

    Snoothrank:

    Opened 30 minutes before aeration via Venturi. Deep (strong) dark cherry nose with a sugar note or two and some subtle (light) cedar bark. Beautiful, enticing black cherry colour just beginning to turn brick red. Entry is soft, seductive, sweet with cherry and cola predominating. Tannins are light, fading, but integrated. Finish is long and sati... Read More

  • M Chapoutier Bila-Haut Cotes du Roussillon Villages 2016

    Snoothrank:

    The Bila-Haut Cotes de Roussillons Villages Rouge is an excellent bargain year over year; Raspberry notes dominate the bouquet with just a hint of earthiness - almost like Sirop de Framboise. Entry carries the Grenache element with a slightly rustic raspberry/plum flavor - but balanced and only slightly warm on the finish. This is a very sound ... Read More
