Le Masoulier Moulin de Gassac 2011


We made a number of visits to the local Nicolas wine store, part of a chain that’s been around in Paris for nearly 200 years. They sell a wide variety of wines at all different price points, from their inexpensive €3.30  plonk to very expensive special occasion wines.

Our first bottle was a red, Le Masoulier Moulin de Gassac 2011. This wine is from the Pays de l’Hérault region in Languedoc-Roussillon; it cost about $6. I’d buy it again.

Color: purple
Aroma: My perception was that this wine smelled like figs and ripe cherries.
Taste: An uncomplicated wine, dry but not acidic; just a bit tannic. It had a short aftertaste. I thought this was a pleasant everyday quaff.
Grapes: 30% Syrah, 30% Grenache, 20% Carignan, 10% Cinsault, 5% Alicante,  and 5% Aramon
