Les Servieres 2001 Cinsault

88 points- This wine comes form a single vineyard near Montpellier (Vin de Pays l’Herault). It is from 100 year old Cinsault vines. Cinsault is typically used as a blending variety in Languedoc. It is a high yielding and quite acid grape, but here with obvious low yields, it was a bit like Grenache with a bit more berry on the nose. It had a fruit and yet earthy nose with a smooth palate with no obvious oak. It was probably in old oak barrels. I had no idea what to expect, but was happy to drink the wine with a spicy fish stew- no rough edges and fun to drink. – Larry Lockshin
