Not a lot of new stuff for #winewednesday but these are some pretty interesting wines. Of particular note is the Clos des Fous pinot noir, which is from a newish winery intent on exploring “extreme terroir” in Chile. The Languedoc blend from Gérard Bertrand is a great value wine from Southern France, a finessed combination of syrah and grenache that has some power behind it. And for a cheap and cheerful taste of the Languedoc region of France, we have the cleverly named Longue-Dog with a cute little pooch on the label.
Clos des Fous Subsollum Pinot Noir (Chile) $33.9
Gérard Bertrand Languedoc Syrah/Grenache (France) $21.9
Longue-Dog Red (France) $13.9
