Ratings : Jancis Robinson 17,5/20, Silver Medal International Wine Challenge 2016
« Not pronounced, but distinctive nose: pomegranate and beetroot, orange peel, guava. Glossy intensity spreads across the palate filling all corners of the mouth with reverberating layers of flavour. Clenched with tension and intent, ambitious, beautifully balanced, tannins smouldering in the background, no single component dominating. Strong, spiced finish. » (Jancis Robinson - September 2016)

Jancis Robinson

Wine rated (guide 2016) : 17,5/20

About this wine : Not pronounced, but distinctive nose: pomegranate and beetroot, orange peel, guava. Glossy intensity spreads across the palate filling all corners of the mouth with reverberating layers of flavour. Clenched with tension and intent, ambitious, beautifully balanced, tannins smouldering in the background, no single component dominating. Strong, spiced finish. Almost long, and then it just fades a tiny bit too quickly for so much delivery.

About the vineyard : Jérôme Joseph et Laurent Calmel sont des négociants sans chai. Ils élèvent les cuvées qu’ils sélectionnent chez les vignerons auxquels ils les achètent. Leur art consiste à développer les saveurs des vins dans le respect des terroirs d’origine. La gamme est large, beaucoup de vins sont bien réussis et ne dépareillent pas, dans une dégustation comparative, avec la production des meilleurs vignerons des appellations où ils opèrent.

Located northwest of Montpellier, the vineyards of the Terrasses du Larzac are heavily influenced by the cool air that comes down off the Larzac plateau, symbolized by Mount Baudile rising to over 850m. Geographically, the area is pretty unique, with day and night-time temperature variations that can be as wide as 20 degrees in summer. This means that the grapes mature slowly and ...
