"Readers that like full-bodied, textured wines that always shows a sense of elegance and purity need to get on this estate’s bandwagon." - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
One of the Languedoc-Roussillon’s finest estates, Chateau de L’Ou is real proof that Southern France is the among the most exciting wine regions in Europe - even without mentioning the extraordinary value. With their luxurious Syrah-based cuvees, de L’Ou is a major contributor to the region’s skyrocketing popularity, and despite the fact that most of their production is snapped up by restaurants and European buyers, JJ Buckley has managed to secure some of their stunning 2014 Infiniment de L’ou.
Chateau de L’Ou produced “some of the top wines in the vintage” (Wine Advocate) in 2014, and the ‘Infiniment’ earned 95 points from the Wine Advocate! At only $29.94, this is a 95-point Syrah that can compete with the best of the Rhone for a fraction of the price, and it's ready to enjoy today!
Chateau de L’Ou is a “hidden gem” (Dunnuck) in the Roussillon, and their secret lies in their organically farmed old vines located in the appellation’s best terroir. Unlike so many reds from the Roussillon, the ‘Infiniment’ is 100% Syrah from estate vineyards, and only select barrels make it into the cuvee. Savvy buyers know that the Cotes Catalans is the greatest source for value Syrah in France, and this is a must buy for fans of any style.
2014 was a vintage of “purity and balance” (Wine Advocate), and the exceptional de L’Ou reds are a beautiful crop of Syrah that are approachable and delicious. Enjoy the ‘Infiniment’ today and over the next 10 years!
