Terrasses du Larzac
The spring of 2020 was cooler and wetter compared to 2019, followed by a summer that was not excessively hot. This vintage effect has produced a delicate and elegant wine of superb cherry red hue. The nose is very refined with lightly oaky notes underpinning redcurrant and cherry, floral notes, and also spices such as white pepper and curry. In the mouth, the attack is clean and subtle with a promise of great persistence. The smoothness of the tannins harmoniously accompanies the toasty, fresh almond, mocha, fruity redcurrant and cherry aromas, but also more sappy notes. Tasted blind, it exhibits a mysterious, wayward, unfettered character… in short, a free spirit.
