Languedoc wines can age well! Bottles from 1998 and 1999

IMG_2013

Last week it was proven again that wines from Languedoc in Southern France have an ability to age. The 1998 Chateau de La Liquière, cuvée Cistus from Faugères had a dense structure with fruit and balance, was superbly mouth-filling and showed a great length.

The one year younger 1999 Mortiès from the Pic-St-Loup was more brilliant in colour and also had a more lively fruit and more pronounced acidity followed by a nice length.

I’m pretty releaved that these wines have braved the passing time since I had several bottles of much younger Faugères from Barral which faded way too early (all 3 estates are of good reputation). Sometimes you just have to keep the faith in a wine region and it’ll reward you :=)

    I’m a huge fan of Pic St Loup and find many will keep for several years. They never do of course as my empty wine rack testifies!
