A deep ruby red wine with an intense nose of red fruit, like cherry, spices and lightly smoky undertones, evolving to menthol, aniseed and floral aromas. In the mouth it is smooth and fresh with silky, well-balanced tannins, as always. Vanilla, liquorice and elderberry lead to rich roasted notes and mocha on the finish. The Terrasses du Larzac remains a truly exceptional appellation, and this vintage is here to
prove it once again.
