Calmel & Joseph Terrasses Du Larzac
£15.50

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.

Description

Details

All wines from Languedoc-Roussillon are sourced in partnership with JJoseph Vins & Terroirs. In 2007, Laurent Calmel joined JJoseph’s fifteen years old trading company that specialized in the Languedoc Roussillon wines coming from Private cellars. Both of them decided to take up a new challenge: vinifying in the most natural way a range of great Languedoc Roussillon wines on hardly known appellations from a strict selection of parcels cultivated organically. This desire to prove the exceptional quality of these soils also relied on complete transparency of the wines. Their cultural methods and vinification are widely described on their blog www.calmel-jjoseph.com.

Vineyards

Clay limestone with cryoclastic limestone gravel within a deep sandy clay soil.

Vinification

Traditional process in vats. Punching down early in the fermentation process, then daily, light mouillage (soaking) of the cap is carried out towards the end of the 15-day period in vat. Malolactic fermentation takes place in barrels. 12 months in oak barrels (40 % new wood, 40 % barrels used for one vintage, 20% barrels used for two vintages)
