COQILLE D'OC 2010 ROUGE VDP

The Coquille d’Oc is a colourful new range of wines produced at Sainte Rose, located near Servian in the Languedoc region of Southern France. With their striking labels, easy drinking style and affordable price point these wines are guaranteed to create an impression--and this red wine certainly did so with our staff!

The scallop shell (coquille is French for “shell”) on the label is a very appropriate image to use for wine from Sainte Rose for two historical reasons. Firstly this shell was a waymarker for Medieval travelers on the pilgrimage route to Santiago de Compostela. Secondly, they have found actual scallop shells in one of the vineyards that date back to Roman times as there was a Roman settlement on the outskirts of what is now their local village. Le Coquille D’Oc is comprised of 40% Grenache, 40% Syrah and 20% Mourvedre.

Ahh--the southern French wine nose never ceases to fascinate (usually in a Pavlovian way) and amaze us. La Coquille blends notes of spice, black tea, leather, meat, cherry vanilla fruit and sea salt. The palate is equally tempting, with oodles of sweet, forward fruit that is balanced by good amounts of tannin and grip. Notes of both red and black plum, blackberry fruit, black pepper and mixed spices envelop the palate while the rounded tannins counterpoint nicely. The finish is lengthy and gorgeous. So much for so little!
