Soggy Fall weather requires flavorful wine


We have countered the continual rain and gray clouds by drinking two flavorful bottles of wine.  The 2012 Domaine Le Clos du Serres, Le Clos, Languedoc offers surprisingly round flavors of red fruit and black minerals.  It is a clean, forward wine that will please many.  The 2012 Domaine Jean Baptiste Senat, La Nine, Minervois is darker, earthy, and meaty.  While capable of further development, it has a flavor profile I already find hard to resist.  While I recommend you try both of these wines, I suggest you start with a case of the later!  These wines are available at Weygandt Wines.

Weygandt1

2012 Domaine Le Clos du Serres, Le Clos, Languedoc – $18
Imported by Weygandt-Metzler.  This wine is a blend of 35% Grenache, 35% Syrah, and 30% Cinsault.  Alcohol 14%.  The high-toned aromas make way to a similar flavor profile in the mouth but with a surprising round mouthfeel.  The red fruit mixes with slightly watering acidity, and a very moderate structure that takes on some grip and black minerals.  This is a fine, clean wine with lots of forward flavor.  ** Now – 2017.

2012 Domaine Jean Baptiste Senat, La Nine, Minervois – $20
Imported by Weygandt-Metzler.  This wine is a blend of 50% Grenache, 25% Cinsault, and 25% Mourvedre.  Alcohol 13.5%.  The flavors are fresh, yet deep with earthy and other comfortable notes.  The slight prickle on the tongue eventually dissipates leaving a balance of acidity, creamy middle, and textured finish.  This meaty wine should develop over the next few years.  *** Now – 2020.
