2014 Saint-Chinian Rouge “Causse de Bousquet”

Mas Champart

2014 Saint-Chinian <i>Rouge</i> “Causse de Bousquet” Mas Champart - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant

A Syrah-based blend from rugged, windswept slopes of limestone and marl, Causse du Bousquet is the perfect introduction to Saint-Chinian. Isabelle and Matthieu Champart have called these Languedoc hills home since 1976, when they moved to Isabelle’s family’s farm and began tending the vines that surround the property. In addition to being a skilled vigneron, Isabelle is a fantastic cook, and the wines truly shine alongside simple Mediterranean dishes from fresh ingredients—just as she would serve guests on her terrace, overlooking the vineyards. This full-bodied red shows off the house style and can even age for several years, if you desire. Rustic yet remarkably polished, Causse du Bousquet is inky dark with notes of blackberry and a whole lotta soul.

About Languedoc-Roussillon

Ask wine drinkers around the world, and the word “Languedoc” is sure to elicit mixed reactions. On the one hand, the region is still strongly tied to its past as a producer of cheap, insipid bulk wine in the eyes of many consumers. On the other hand, it is the source of countless great values providing affordable everyday pleasure, with an increasing number of higher-end wines capable of rivaling the best from other parts of France.

While there’s no denying the Languedoc’s checkered history, the last two decades have seen a noticeable shift to fine wine, with an emphasis on terroir. Ambitious growers have sought out vineyard sites with poor, well draining soils in hilly zones, curbed back on irrigation and the use of synthetic fertilizers and pesticides, and looked to balance traditional production methods with technological advancements to craft wines with elegance, balance, and a clear sense of place. Today, the overall quality and variety of wines being made in the Languedoc is as high as ever.

Shaped like a crescent hugging the Mediterranean coast, the region boasts an enormous variety of soil types and microclimates depending on elevation, exposition, and relative distance from the coastline and the cooler foothills farther inland. While the warm Mediterranean climate is conducive to the production of reds, there are world-class whites and rosés to be found as well, along with stunning dessert wines revered by connoisseurs for centuries.

Trust the great winemakers, trust the great vineyards. Your wine merchant might even be trustworthy. In the long run, that vintage strip may be the least important guide to quality on your bottle of wine.—Kermit Lynch
