2007 Chrysalides et papillons Coteax du Languedoc: Gentle, soft, good nose.

oct. 24, 2010: emilie and i celebrated mom's birthday with mom and dad at their house in newburgh. dad made his sumac-marinated rotisserie chicken (delicious), and i made guacamole via http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alton-brown/guacamole-recipe/index.html and butternut squash risotto (the squash was from our garden) via http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/Roasted-Butternut-Squash-Risotto-105725. emilie helped mom make her famous persimmon pudding, which was especially tasty this time, and we all had a very good dinner.

this languedoc was definitely soft. mom and dad had had it at a restaurant in new york, but dad said that bottle was an older vintage. he thought this wine could do with a little bit of aging. i thought the nose was definitely aromatic, berry-ish and very pleasant. the flavor wasn't especially distinctive, but two out of three isn't bad. i'm looking forward to trying this again a few years from now. 14 percent alcohol.
