A question about Chateau l'Euziere, and otherwise deciphering French wine labels

nooodles | Aug 20, 2005 12:58 PM

There's so much written on here, and I have so little experience with French wine outside of the most famous regions, I have no clue what this label means:

1999
Chateau l'Euziere
L'Almandin
Coeaux du Languedoc
Pic Saint Loup

Near as I can tell, languedoc is the grape, Chateau l'Euziere is the winery, and of course 1999 is the vintage. Am I right, and what's all the rest?

Also, does anyone know about this winery's reputation, or the quality of this particular wine? Some Googling showed that this wine is actually decreasing in value as it ages. The 2001 is retailing for $15, the 1999 for $10, and the 1996 for $9. Obviously I don't have high hopes, but was hoping others could chime in with opinions, info, and advice. Thanks!
