Tasting Notes:
rated: December 16, 2007 , Frank Herzog
"Jean-Louis Denois is considered by many as a maverick of the Languedoc. This passionate vigneron produces an impressive portfolio of wines from Limoux, considered one of the coolest regions in the Languedoc. The Denois philosophy is simple. To showcase Limoix as an island of freshness in the south of France. Finding the perfect balance between ripeness and acidity here is key, and Denois manages to maintain this across the board. The 2004 Denois Merlot is a wonderful expression of a fresh Merlot style with plenty of fruit but just enough acidity to give it balance. The nose is dominated by plummy Merlot fragrance. On the palate the wine is medium bodied with lots of dark fruit, just a bit of earth and soft yet present tannins. This wine is an easy drinker, intended for consumption at an early age—so open it up and enjoy. It will go well with beef, pork or even roast chicken, and with hard cheeses. " Best 2007-
