I was spending some time at one of my favorite wine shops and came across a bottle that I couldn’t pass up in hopes it would be a great mid-week wine. Laurent Miquel Nord Sud 2007 Syrah comes from Languedoc, which is in the South of France. Languedoc is a great wine region because it produces wonderful wines that are often priced far lower than some of France’s more notable regions (think Bordeaux and Burgundy). This wine is a perfect example!
About the Wine- From the Winery
Laurent Miquel Nord Sud 2007 Syrah is 100% Syrah from France. It has 13.5% alcohol and retails for around $14.
Now the Fun Part- Tasting the wine
This Syrah has enticing, earthy aromas of plum, dark chocolate, and dark currants. At first sip, flavors of berries and dark chocolate come alive. Then tastes of pepper are shine through with a touch of minerality and a lift of acidity. A delicious wine priced very fairly!
My Wine Rating- A-
Food Pairing Suggestions- Pair this wine with rack of lamb, burgers, or a pizza with black olives and mushrooms.
