Terrasses du Larzac
A lovely ruby red hue. Highly opulent nose with notes of red and black berry fruit such as redcurrant, blackcurrant and elderberry. The attack is elegant, frank, with a strongly red fruit middle palate and complex notes of aniseed, peppermint and eucalyptus for a wine with lots of character. The oaky notes of this vintage are finely honed and the tannins are already well integrated. An atypical Terrasses du Larzac in the continuity of the style of previous vintages.
