From Jeb Dunnuck’s March 2012 issue of the Rhone Report:

2009 Mas Laval Vin de Pays de l’Hérault Les Pampres (France, Languedoc Roussillon, Languedoc, Vin de Pays de l’Hérault) The entry level wine here and a blend of 45% Syrah, 20% Grenache, 20% Carignan, and 15% Mourvèdre, the 2009 Mas Laval Vin de Pays de l’Hérault Les Pampres is upfront and fragrant, showing sweet red and black fruits, bay leaf, seaweed wrappers, and assorted wild herb like aromas of thyme, rosemary, and winter savory. Beautifully made and polished on the palate, with a medium to full-bodied texture, excellent balance, good structure, and an overall clean, elegant profile, this outstanding wine should continue to please for 4-6 years.
