Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate (Jeb Dunnuck) / Languedoc 2012

2014-04-30 Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate (Jeb Dunnuck)

The 2012 Languedoc, a blend of Syrah, Grenache and Carignan is a spicy, black cherry, herb and leather-scented effort that has mid-weight aromas and flavors, plenty of character and a quaffable feel. Enjoy this bistro-styled effort over the coming couple of years.

This was a superb lineup from Gregory Hecht and Francois Bannier. The wines show distinctive personalities as well as solid underlying structures. They also represent excellent values.
