A fantastic Syrah-Merlot blend from Languedoc-Roussillon bio-dynamic for $10?
Yes, I just tasted the Canon du Marechal 2010 from Domaine Cazes in France and found a superb medium to full body wine that fully expresses the terroir of this southwestern region known as Languedoc-Roussillon or Cotes Catalanes.
This supple blend is 50% Merlot and 50% Syrah, with velvety fruity aromas and soft tannins, which makes it ideal to accompany any mediterranean food. It is best served at around 50 degrees.
The Cazes family goes back to 1731, acquired the domaine in 1927 from Marechal Joffre ( hence the name) and went fully organic in 1997, producing a complete line of bio-dynamic wines. The Canon du Marechal is one of the best (and most inexpensive) organic red on the market at the moment. It is available for $9.99 at Wines and Spirits Discount Warehouse in New Rochelle (next to ShopRite)
