Grange des Peres Rouge 2014

Known for mass-produced bulk wine for far too long, the Languedoc Roussillon got a pretty bad rep for most of the 20th century-- that is, until wineries like Domaine de la Grange des Peres came along and shook up the local scene. This gorgeous, Syrah and Mourvedre dominant blend is full-bodied and spicy, full of savory dark fruit flavors dotted with garrigue and earth. Languedoc skeptics, this one’s for you.


Blackberry-scented beauty (a.k.a. Monastrell in Spain) that loves hot climates like Provence in France and Jumilla in southern Spain. It’s thick-skinned and dense making reds with a pleasing gaminess.

Languedoc-Roussillon, France

This large swath of southern-most France is a value-hunters paradise: chunky, satisfying Grenache- and Carignan-based reds await you, alongside whites and rosés that similarly over-deliver.
