ABBAYE SYLVA PLANA  Faugères La Closeraie 2013 -  89 pts

"Made from a blend of Grenache, Syrah, Carignan and Mourvèdre (the Mourvèdre and Carignan fermented with carbonic maceration), the 2013 La Closeraie comes from schist soils and was brought up all in tank. It offers classic Languedoc scrub brush, juniper, leather and sweet plum and berry fruit-like aromas and flavors. Medium-bodied, with both good acidity and concentration, it's still young and unevolved and should benefit from a year in the cellar. It will have upwards of 5-6 years of overall longevity. " - Jeb Dunnuck, #218 April 2015

MAS GRANIER  Coteaux du Languedoc Les Marnes 2013 -  91 pts

"Mas Granier’s 2013 Languedoc Les Marnes Blanc is an outstanding blend of 70% Roussanne, 20% Grenache Blanc and 10% Viognier. It offers beautiful tropical and pear notes, medium to full-bodied richness, integrated acidity, and a fleshy, textured yet fresh style. Drink it over the coming couple of years. " - Jeb Dunnuck, #218 April 2015

MAS GRANIER  Coteaux du Languedoc Les Grés 2012 -  89 pts

"The 2012 Languedoc Les Grés is made from 70% Syrah, 20% Mourvèdre and 10% Grenache that spent 12 months in 300-liter barrels. It has impressive ripeness in its blueberry, wild herbs, crushed violet and earthy nuances to go with a medium-bodied, textured, yet balanced feel on the palate. It has sweet tannin, lots to like, and should evolve for 4-5 years. " - Jeb Dunnuck, #218 April 2015
