Hit or Miss when Unfamiliar
I'm notably ignorant when it comes to French varietals and while this wine was by no means "bad," I made an error in judgement with the pairing. It was a bit too earthy for my intentions and was something of an afterthought given CH's Napa Cabs.
Oh, You Speak French?
Oui. I tend to stay close to the ranch in Northern California when it comes to my CH purchases. I've dabbled in South America, and even more in Washington and Oregon, but I rarely try the European offerings, probably to my detriment. This one I liked very much. I can't recall what led me to this one, but it's subtle and velvety tones had me with the first sip.
I am very familiar with central coast syrah, not so much with French style. I enjoyed this for a change up. It is definitely medium body per the description, but good none the less. I will give it a 5 on value, because it is French and drinkable. You can't normally get a $15 drinkable French wine!
Syrah from France
Expect sediments in Syrah from France. You should decant through a screen....very vice value for this wine!
A very nice styled Syrah
I enjoyed this well styled French Syrah. Good nose, balance of tastes, lingering after taste. Very true to description.
The tasting notes are accurate. A very yummy tasty wine, good with steaks and burgers or just sipping with a cigar or pipe. As for the sediment, it is no big deal. I just put the filter on my aerator and problem solved. I don't understand the criticisms of wine with sediment. Even some of the first growths develop a sediment over time.
Really good tasting, full bodied Syrah.
Great value and a nice alternative to Cabernet for lighter dishes...lighter and fruitier but still a real mouthful.....I will buy more of this varietal.
Recently purchased a case. Taste/color/quality fine. But truly disappointed in amount of sediment in every bottle opened so far. Apparently unfiltered. Searced all CH descriptions I could and found no references. Maybe better luck next time ??
Really nice Syrah
Very pleasant wine to enjoy with or without meals!
Smooth, savory Syrah - like French wine from the Languedoc
Sitting here enjoying 370 with grilled skirt steak and my mind is sifting through a number of other entree 's that would pair well with this Coteaux de Languedoc. It well may be better than any Syrah I 've yet to taste. Smooth, great on the palate...lovely blueberry piece there. At the price, a steal. I could serve this with several French inspired menus...though it it should to be held to any one cooking nationality.
