Terrasses du Larzac
Deep colour. Clean and straightforward on the nose, showing a beautiful identity. It is intense and concentrated with notes of red and black fruit - with a predominance of blackcurrants. The texture on the palate is supple, concentrated and balanced: the tannins are fine. Notes of liquorice, menthol, garrigue, bay leaves, blackcurrants and spices. This vintage is less "gamey" than the 2011. The wine shows marked minerality with superb fruit. A very delicate wine.
