Category Red Wine
Region France, Languedoc-Roussillon
Brand Jeff Carrel
Alcohol/vol 13.5%
Deep red with glints of purple. Hints of red fruit yoghurts, and with aeration fruits such as plums, blueberries and blackberries combined with cinnamon and white pepper spices. Combines amplitude and stress with a dense and silky matter. Mature tannins which easily pass thanks to the fruit and its freshness. Powerful, full-bodied and luscious with numerous but not over-bearing spices finishing with menthol resinous notes. Pair with barbecues, red and white meats, a red wine for all occasions…

The 2017 Languedoc Les Darons is made from 75% Grenache, 20% Syrah, and 5% Carignan that's mostly from older vines in the Minervois. It saw a touch of whole clusters in the fermentersand is still aging all in concrete tanks. It's deep purple (almost inky) and offers a sensational perfume of blueberries, blackberries, licorice, ground pepper, and earth. Deep, full-bodied, beautifully concentrated, and long, it shows the purity and sexiness of the 2017 vintage and is going to be a killer value."

Ripe mulberries and black cherries abound in the 2017 Les Darons. It's medium to full-bodied, with touches of leather and smoke evident as well (despite being entirely unoaked), giving it an attractive savory complexity that's rare at this price point.
