Jean-Claude Mas Languedoc 2011 AoP

Tasted 15/08/12, 14%, cork closure. £8 UK retail (e.g. Sainsburys Taste the Difference). This is a classic southern French blend of Grenache, Syrah, Carignan and Mourvedre under the new regional appellation of Appellation d'Origine Protegee. The winemaker has a good pedigree and it shows - this is a lovely wine. Deep purple colour, nose of pimento, coffee and toasted spice. The tannins still have a firm grip but this is an elegant, well structured wine. Lots of juicy black fruit on the palate with coffee on the finish. Very enjoyable now, from 2013. 16/20
