Red Roc d'Anglade # 2 & 3

Roc d'Anglade 2003 & 2002
Roc d'Anglade, Languedoc, France
When Remy Pedrenos joined forces with

Points 16.5

Vintage 2002
Clear brick-red; meaty aromas; soft velvety fruit..gentle tannins...enough acidity to carry the fruit and makes for a well balanced wine.All the wines are quite lush and rich..but never overdone..retaining a coolness.......

Points 17
