Wine Tasting Note: Montpezat Les Enclos
, 2004, Languedoc, France.
Available from Oddbins
Throwing Syrah (30%) into a vat of Merlot (70%) makes for an unusual blend, especially from France. But that is the joy of Vin de Pays. My hastily scribbled notes – I was grilling lamb steaks at the time – repeated deep, rich and complex several times. Full-bodied, complex flavours of raspberries and blackberries hoisted above the average with a touch of vanilla oak and a strong tannic background. Alcohol 13.5%. It’s a good wine, people, certainly worth trying with some hunky meat dish – sausages, steaks, autumn stews or as with us, lamb. Scribblings Rating – 92/100
