Chateau De Flaugergues 2001 “Cuvee Sommeliere” wine review by (PB)

This is another super value wine from the Coteaux Du Languedoc that is dense cherry in color with an almost opaque appearance. It is full bodied with nice structure and the first fleeting taste in the mouth is of spice with a trailing sense of steel.

In the front palate there is a layer of menthol with cedar sprigs galore; the finish is lasting with a hint of licorice and eucalyptus. It reminds me of some of the high end Syrahs I have had. I paid $12 for this wine and would buy a bunch more if I can find it. If you run across this wine BUY IT and enjoy it to the max! Raise a glass and more.
