Natalie's Score: 89/100

The 2015 vintage of this full-bodied southern French red wine is a blend of 75% Grenache, 5% Carignan and 20% Syrah grapes. This wine is from France's very warm Languedoc region and is created by Jeff Carrel. Grapes for this wine are from 40-year-old vines, and the wine is spicy, black plum, blackberry on the nose and palate. Pair with grilled, gourmet sausages.

Food pairings: game meats, rare roast beef, spice-braised lamb, cheddar.

Reviews and Ratings

Produced by Jeff Carrel, Les Darons (2015) is a savoury and medium-full bodied red blend of75% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 5% Carignan sourced from 40 plus year old vines from vineyards in the Languedoc, Midi wine region. This is a spicy red with dark berry fruit, earthy florals and cherry jam flavours on the palate. Wine grapes were destemmed, fermented and aged all in concrete tanks. There is no oak on this wine. Fantastic value for quality under $20. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
