Les Darons Languedoc rouge 2015 (4714)

France - Languedoc-Roussillon
Rhone Blend

Once a source only for cheap bulk wine, Languedoc is now proving its ability to make wonderful terroir wines at very reasonable prices. The region is thriving with so many exciting wine producers you hardly know where to turn.

The wines of the Languedoc have a lot in common with their relatives from the southern Rhone. Traditional Rhone varieties like Syrah, Mourvedre, Grenache and Carignan are favoured by those with an eye to quality.

Darren Harris

On the nose this is all raspberry and blueberry - the Grenache to the fore. It is very Chateauneuf - but not quite. A great palate - slinky, juicy, fresh with flowers and a liquorice/pastille character. It is bright and pure. Succulent. Deep. Not too ripe - more mouthcoating and textured - the alcohol well and truly under control. Then it finishes with defined acid, fine tannins and some garrigue. Gosh, this is a good drink. 


Jeb Dunnuck - eRobert Parker

What looks like another great vintage here, the 2015 AOP Languedoc les Darons is made from 75% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 5% Carignan; grapes were completely destemmed, and fermented and aged all in concrete tanks. It sees absolutely no oak whatsoever. This medium to full-bodied, plump, rounded, downright sexy 2015 has lots of blueberry, violets, and jammy black cherry aromas and flavors; it has terrific purity of fruit, good acidity and an overriding sense of elegance. If it came from a more prestigious appellation in the southern Rhone, it would go for three times the price.
