Just had a bottle of the new vintage of Laurent Miquel’s Languedoc red and loved every drop. It’s a Grenache/Syrah blend with bright flavours, some richness and wonderful drinkability. Very bistro-ish, and not a lot different than all my favourite Cotes du Rhones.
P.S. Miquel’s non-oaked Chardonnay is in my LCBO’s top-ten list. Refreshment with French flair. Get both.
