"Consistently the most elegant and ageworthy wine in our Languedoc portfolio, distinguished by the high proportion of Mourvèdre (about half, plus Syrah and Grenache). Savoury and spicy underpinning. There is tannin but it melds in perfectly with the black fruit. Delicious now but will keep beautifully. Now-2026. 17/20 points. (TC)”
Vinous Reverie Notes
Terrasses du Larzac, 2019 vintage is a blend of 50% Mourvèdre, 30% Syrah and 20% Grenache balancing the piercing freshness of Mediterranean warmth, in a spicy way, rather than an alcoholic way (13.5%). Organically farmed. All grapes hand harvested, transported in baskets and destemmed. Spontaneous fermentation in tank, pump overs (frequency based on tasting) during the five week cuvaison. Aged 13 months in 400 liter barriques. Intensely flavored but light on its feet has vibrant aromas of black cherries followed by lovely depth and balance on the palate. This wine is delicious now, but built to last 15 to 20 years. This is the perfect autumn wine, perfect for autumn food: bacon, butternut and lentil salad; chickpea and red-pepper curry; shepherd's pie. It's a wine for the moment.
