Continuing our trip in southern France..we move across to Roussillon....only to be disappointed after the Rhône and Languedoc.
Domaine Gardies Vieilles Vignes
Tautavel Rouge 2004
Cotes du Roussillon, France
Prunes(which I hated as a kid), tight earthy smell;.
jammy sweet fruit, chunky palate with lots of
dry, beefy tannins.
Really rather brutal and not much charm....
not a bad wine but considering it was in the
same price range as the 2 other wines from
Southern France..it lost out.
Get me outta here!
