LE CIRQUE 2011 VINS DE PAYS COTES CATALANES

ROBERT PARKER 91 POINTS - "The brilliant 2011 Le Cirque Vin de Pays (a blend of 45% Grenache, 25% Carignan, 20% Syrah and 15% Mourvedre) is a sensational value. Its dense ruby/purple color is followed by abundant aromas of blueberries, cassis, garrigue and pepper as well as a meaty character. This powerful (14.5% alcohol), unoaked, mouth-saturating, dry red should drink well for several years."

The Roussillon region in France's far south has more in common with Northern Spain than with the adjacent Languedoc region of France - the yields are low and the soils are sparse and rocky. Le Cirque comes from an amphitheater shaped vineyard in the foothills of the Pyrenees. The wine shows generous blueberry and raspberry coulis up front with a powerful thread of minerals, black pepper, and Provençal herbs. Le Cirque is new to the market, but with value like this, we bought every bottle we could. LE CIRQUE 2011, Vins de Pays Côtes Catalanes, France.
