2010 Mas Champart Causse du Bousquet

Price: $29/bottle SOLD OUT

champartHad you been a civil engineer in 2nd century BC working on The Via Domitia (the first Roman road through Gaul linking Italy and Hispania) you might have quenched your thirst by drinking wine grown in and around Saint-Chinian. From this ancient winemaking region in the Languedoc comes a heady yet inexpensive red — 2010 Mas Champart “Causse du Bousquet”.

Aromas of sweet cherry, wet stone, and twigs occupy a glass leaving behind the mere suggestion of licorice. Medium-bodied and firm, with enough structure to cellar for a few years, though flawless presently. We happily drank a few glasses with local J & M Farm smoked pork chops and some good company.
