Chateau La Roque 1998 Coteaux du Languedoc Pic Saint-Loup Cuvee Les Vieilles Vignes de Mourvèdre ($9.99)
This unusual red wine from one of my favorite Languedoc wineries is made entirely from Mourvèdre grapes from old vines, and delicious fruit and earthiness make it a very good value for a penny under $10. Dark ruby in color, it shows fresh red-fruit and the pleasant earthy scents that I associate with this grape. Soft, juicy fruit flavors are consistent with the aroma, with light but sufficient acidity to provide balance. U.S. Importer: Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant, Berkeley, Calif. (Feb. 10, 2000)
FOOD MATCH: Just right with garlicky roast chicken.

Previous day's wine note
All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I purchase all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.|
