Domaine Montrose Rouge 2010
Domaine Montrose is a family wine estate founded in 1701 when the "Three Lizards" coat of arms was given to Joseph Alazard by King Louis XIV's counselor. It is located in the Languedoc region of Southern France, 9.3 miles away from the Mediterranean sea, on the great Cotes de Thongue terroir. The Montrose name is derived from its geographic location on a volcano ("Mont") and the almond trees with rose-colored flowers that surrounds its vineyard. Currently run by Alazard's descendant, Bernard Coste, and his son Olivier, the knowledge the family has gained since Montrose's vineyard was created in 1701 allows them to strive for excellence. Domaine Montrose Rouge is a smooth, fruity, and medium-bodied wine.
Merlot, Syrah, and Grenache blend. Garnet-red color with purple hints. Nose of red fruits, strawberries, blackcurrant, and cocoa. The mouth is crunchy and round. It is a gourmand wine to be drunk young. Serve as an aperitif or with grilled meats, pastas, or cheeses.
