2016 Les Vignes Oubliées, Terrasses du Larzac, Languedoc

Description

Dark ruby in colour with purple hues this intensely aromatic red shows notes of brambly fruits and sweet spice. On the palate it is very juicy with notes of garrigue towards the finish. Far from rustic, the fine tannins are in perfect balance with the fresh acidity, making it incredibly quaffable. Enjoy with red meat dishes or a sausage casserole.

Wine Advocate90/100
Wine Advocate90/100
Matured in demi-muids for a year, the 2016 Terrasses du Larzac is a blend of 60% Grenache, 20% Carignan and 20% Syrah. Despite the oak levage, there's no obvious toast or vanilla, just pure scents of black cherry fruit and hints of garrigue (thyme and bay) in this medium to full-bodied, supple, silky offering.

Coteaux du Languedoc

Coteaux du Languedoc

The Coteaux du Languedoc appellation is either a useful assemblage of the top enclaves in the Hérault department or an extremely unhelpful conglomeration of vastly different sub-regions which would be more helpfully categorised independently. Whatever one's opinion, it is not short of both significance and potential, running along the Mediterranean coast from Narbonne almost as far east as Nîmes, and covering over 10,000 hectares – as well as some of the most attractive and wonderfully-situated vineyards in France.

Several of its sub-appellations are fighting for full AC status, the most famous being La Clape, Picpoul de Pinet and Pic St Loup. Of the others, high quality wines are now being produced in, inter alia, Montpeyroux, Grés De Montpellier and Terrasses du Larzac. All the principle grapes are represented, with Carignan and Cinsault reduced to a maximum of 40 percent apiece to encourage more fashionable varieties, especially Syrah and Mourvèdre. The terroir is equally diverse, with limestone, schist, sand and clay all evidenced.
