Domaine Les Grandes Costes, Pic St Loup, AOC/AOP Coteaux du Languedoc, France, 2009

Natural cork closure, 14.5%, £11.37, The Co-op.

WSET style tasting note
Appearance – clear and bright, deep intensity purple, showing distinct tears.

Nose – clean on the nose, with a pronounced intensity, youthful, with aromas of ripe black currant, sweet ripe black cherry and vanilla.

Palate – a dry wine, with medium acidity, with smooth integrated medium tannins, medium (+) alcohol, a full body, with medium (+) intensity flavours of black currant boiled sweets, ripe black cherry, ripe black berry, and  a sweet herbal note on the finish.  A medium (+) length with a clean sweet low key tannic finish.

Quality – a good quality wine, with a balance between acidity and alcohol, which are harmonious with the flavour intensity, and complemented by the smooth integrated tannins. A wine with a good level of concentration and a modest palette of aromas and flavours. With modest acidity and tannins, this wine will keep and evolve for another 1-2 years.
