"The Ch des Karantes, Bergerie 2012 Languedoc La Clape Rouge is, perhaps mercifully, Carignan-free, and 14% alcohol. It is characterized by ripe concentrated fruit but has no suggestion of heat or heft. Instead, it is well balanced, long and satisfying - and approachable already, perhaps because there is none of the rigidity of all but the finest Languedoc Carignan. I'd drink this any time over the next five years."
