Cotes du Roussillon "Georges", Domaine Puig-Parahy 2011

George Puig's approach in the cellar is to produce a wine with minimal intervention. He vinifies with native yeasts and ages in tank with a small dose of sulfites. The Cuvee Georges is a blend of almost equal parts old-vine Grenache, Carignan, and Syrah. For the 2011 vintage, there is just a bit more Syrah in the blend, so you'd notice more elegance in the wine compared to previous vintages. The flavors have a dark richness and texture as always,  but the verve is also turned up a bit. A pleasure to drink! And at just $15 it's an experience you can easily afford to go back to many times.

"The Puig-Parahy 2011 Cotes du Roussillon Georges--a bit more Syrah than usual blended into its Carignan and Grenache--is intriguingly and delightfully scented with Ceylon tea, ripe elderberry and blueberry, accompanied by striking intimations of shrimp shell reduction in its combination of sweet-saline savor and tincture of iodine. A nutty, piquant, and positively vegetal note of Swiss chard adds to the stimulation of a juicy, vivacious, mouthwatering, and remarkably mineral palate presence and finish. Look for this extraordinary value to perform superbly at table through at least 2016." 91/100 David Schildknecht, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
