Review: *** $$ St Martin De La Garrigue Bronzinelle Coteaux du Languedoc, France, 2006

Check out today's pricing and retail availability for this wine.

Original tasting and review : This is St Martin De La Garrigue Bronzinelle Coteaux du Languedoc, France, 2006, finished at 13.5% alcohol, sampled at seven years since vintage date.

In the glass: Medium brick magenta.

On the nose: Poured at room temperature and swirled vigorously, shows soft, lightly funky red fruit with an oak overlay.  From the aroma, seems like this will be fruity and well-aged.

On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are in fact fresh and bold with a combination of red and black fruits, with blackberry predominating.  A bit of oak still apparent, but little in the way of other "old world" funk.  Pleasant and clean.

In summary: Overall, rates three stars on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale.
