Like the other wines from this fine estate, [Les Gourgoules is] aged in concrete vats, which seem to help retain some of the region’s garrigue-like notes. In this medium to full-bodied cuvée, the Syrah stands out for its violet aromas and hints of liquorice, while the other varieties seem to fill in around its structural core, adding notes of berries and cola.
… hints of garrigue, black cherries and raspberries on the nose… savory components of black olives and roasted meat on the palate, plus a velvety finish. Nicely done!
… notes of crushed stone, strawberries and raspberries… medium-bodied, with refreshing lime flavors on the long finish.
Aromas of crushed stone and forward fruit – think strawberries and raspberries – lead into a flavorful, medium-bodies palate that’s capped off by a refreshing blast of lime on the long finish.
Cochon Volant rosé 2018: 90 points
… generous amounts of upfront fruit, with some of [the] Corbières’ stoney texture coming through on the palate, which is otherwise smooth and supple, ending on a hint of liquorice.
