A delicious 90 point Languedoc red blend, the Mas de Lunes e6-g Gres de Montpellier from Vignobles JeanJean.
We've got a lovely one today and it's over half off!
Today's blend of 70% Syrah and 30% Grenache is made from organically grown grapes that come from 35 year-old vines planted in some very special soils, called "e6-g", in the Languedoc region of France.
We're big fans of the wines from the Languedoc as the quality to price ratio tends to be very high. Off the radar for many wine lovers who only concentrate on the big name regions, today's wine comes from an area that might even be off the radar for Languedoc lovers! Here's how the winery describes it's unique location and soils:
Matthieu Carliez is the technical director for all the Jeanjean vineyards. Matthieu likes to say that The Mas de Lunes is a Cru in itself because it is completely isolated sitting on a plateau with 2500 acres of garrigues all around.
E6-G is the technical name of the unique and rare soil type our vines are planted on. It is a rare combination of red clay and round calcareous stones that makes it so special. Some say that clay imparts a profile to wines that is similar to the texture of clay itself — thick, round, and generous while pebbles are most helpful in absorbing heat and reflecting it onto grape varieties, particularly at night when temperatures tend to cool. This allows a region to make wines that are bigger and more alcoholic than they typically would be in that climate.
Here the climate is Mediterranean; dry and hot but at the same time kept under control by the Mediterranean Sea located 6 miles away. Matthieu likes to say that he produces “Vins éclatants” translated into English as “Dazzling wines”.
Talk about terroir! The gold medal winning 2015 Mas de Lunes e6-g Gres de Montpellier received 90 points from Meininger magazine. Half of the Syrah spends time in French barriques of which 25% were new. It has an SRP of $22.

While the 2015 Mas de Lunes e6-g Gres de Montpellier is 70% Syrah, this is definitely not a Rhone-like Syrah but truly more of an easy drinking red blend. It does need a good amount of time (several hours) to open up but once it does, you'll find an excellent aroma of black cherry, spice and lots of garrigue (herbal notes).
Tasting the wine reveals it to be bright, fresh, very ripe and juicy. Medium-bodied, this is a fun one to drink and quite pleasing on the palate. It's fruit forward in the mouth but still has touches of spice and garrigue with just a hint of earthiness.
It ends with a dry, long, lip-smacking and juicy finish. It's drinking very nicely now after a little air and that will likely continue for the next 3-4 years as well. Highly Recommended!
