Another Excellent Wine from Pas de L’Escalette
With just a short period of breathing, the 2014 Domaine du Pas de L’Escalette, Languedoc will draw you in. The aromas are youthful and grapey but the flavors of the wine are serious. You will find lip-smacking berries that will fill your mouth yet will not weigh you down. This is perhaps the most forward wine I have drunk from this estate so I recommend you start drinking it right now. This wine is available at MacArthur Beverages.
2014 Domaine du Pas de L’Escalette, Languedoc – $17
Imported by Elite Wines. This wine is a blend of Grenache, Syrah, and Carignan. Alcohol 13.5%. There is a youthful red, ruby, grapey color followed by a fruity nose of strawberry aromas. In the mouth the clean and bright flavors are of red berries and black fruit. The wine is almost lip-smacking with a modest amount of tannins and watering acidity. It is also gently mouthfilling. *** Now – 2017.
