2009 Monplézy - Coteaux du Languedoc, Pézenas “PLAISIRS”...$17.99
Technical Notes: These grapes are sustainably farmed, with an occasional green harvest when required. At harvest the grapes are hand-picked, collected in 12 kilo cases, and sorted manually before fermentation. The yields are kept to a low 30 hl/ha. A portion of the wine is vinified using carbonic maceration, then blended back into the rest of the juice. The “Cuvée Plaisirs” is aged exclusively in tank. There is no oak ageing for this wine.
Tasting Notes: This is a rich ripe wine with a lot of black fruit. The Syrah and Grenache give the wine its lush black cherry, raspberry, and cassis fruit flavors. Meanwhile, the Carignan grapes, from vines planted in 1955, add an exotic spicy dimension to the wine. Finally, the Cinsault adds a silky texture to the wine, helping to tone down the tannins. The combination of flavors in the “Plaisirs”, along with its nice silky texture, makes it a very versatile wine. It is a great match for summer barbeque, as well as winter roasts.
