2018 CLOS DE L'AZEROLLE Minervois Vieilles Vignes 75cl (Languedoc, France)
Style - Bold
Grapes - 100% Carignan
Tasting - Old vine Carignan in the Languedoc is such a precious resource it's amazing that the wines sell for so little. This beauty has definite X Factor qualities with a beguiling soft texture and a vivid blue-black fruit profile. The true autumn-winter drinking experience. (Shoppers happening upon this wine in Spring or Summer are also encouraged to get this in the basket!)
FYI: We're delighted to discovered via a Google Image search that this estate's proprietor, Raymond Jullien, is just as robust and rugged as his wines.
