Chateau Assas Reserve

Grape Varietal
50% Syrah, 40% Grenache, and 10% Mourvedre.

Tasting notes
After fermentation, the young wine is aged in French oak barrels for 11 months prior to bottling. On the palate the wine is flavorful, dry, and full-bodied, and the flavors linger nicely into the long aftertaste. We like this wine with roasts, stews and braises, flavorful cheeses, and of course with the famous dish from nearby Carcassonne, Cassoulet.

Reserve Les Almades Red

Grape Varietal
60% Syrah
40% Grenache

Tasting notes
Dark Ruby Color.
The nose is composed of black fruits (blackberries, blackcurrants) and woody aromas from the 18 months aging in oak barrel.
On the palate, the attack is supple, the middle is characterized by very subtle tannins which melts into an awareness of hormonious oakiness which persists to an excellent long finish.
This wine is good with pizza, BBQ lamp, beef fillet with black peper, charcuterie or cheese platter.

Chateau L'Argentier Les Demoiselles

Tasting notes
Located in Sommières, between Nîmes and Montpellier, Château l’Argentier is run by the same family since 1937. Taking care of 24 hectares of vines, current owners Elisabeth & Francois JOURDAN are committed to produce terroir-driven wines from Languedoc indigenous grapes such as Cinsault, Carignan, Grenache, Mourvèdre, Syrah & Aramon. Produced from old vines planted on Silex soils, all the wines are fermented in concrete vats. After a long ageing in bottles, Château l’Argentier’s wines are always released when they are at their best for dinking.

Domaine Saint Antonin Magnoux

Grape Varietal
70% Syrah, 20% Mourvèdre, 10% Grenache

Tasting notes
« Magnoux » shows a dark ruby color with hints of garnet. The nose starts with slightly animal and very spicy notes: cinammon, pepper, a touch of liquorice. The fruit is dark with ripe blackcurrrant and garrigue (thyme, rosmarine…). In the mouth, the wine is generous and hamonious, fruity and spicy, structured with a lot of finesse in the tannins. The wood-ageing does not dominate, it is melted into the structure and acts as a support to the wine, adding to its ageing potential.
