David Schildknecht - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

"The Puig-Parahy 2010 Cotes du Roussillon Georges - about to be bottled when I tasted it - offers its usual exuberant, infectiously juicy, impeccably-clean, tart-edged fruit, reflecting a blend of Carignan, Grenache, and a smidgeon of Syrah, raised in tank. Blackberry and purple plum are tinged with brown spices, bittersweet herbs, and peat-like smokiness. Given the pricing of past vintages, we can expect that this 2010 rendition of "Georges" will once again offer outstanding value over the next several years." (06/11)

Product Description:

If you ask us, this is one of the best bottles of red wine you will find in the shop for under $20. Some of us might even say higher. As you can see from the notes below, several wine critics also have issued outstanding praise here. One of them even remarking that many of the wines from this region " taste like Chateauneuf-du-Pape - at less than half the price." - (Globe and Mail)

"The southern Cotes du Roussillon region is on a roll. Some of the reds taste like Chateauneuf-du-Pape - at less than half the price. Blended from grenache, carignan and syrah, this full-bodied red has achieved ideal ripeness and comes unencumbered by oak, so all you taste is that pure, sunny fruit. A polished texture carries flavours of spiced plum and wild herbs. It’s perfect for red-meat roasts such as leg of lamb." - 91 Points - The Globe and Mail - Ontario

"Juicy with fleshy purple plums and blueberry liqueur richness. Full-bodied and deep. Great price. There are dark spices and fruitcake notes on the finish. Great for hearty meat dishes." - 90 Points - Natalie Maclean
