Sauvignon “Grain d’Automne” Pay’s d’Oc IGP Domaine Bergon, 2017
This wine is sourced from vineyards near the town of Beziers. Very fresh grassy Sauvignon grape character. Full rich flavour with good acidity.
Terrasses du Larzac “les Crus” AOP Calmel & Joseph, 2016
Ruby-red hue. The nose is as remarkable as ever with pronounced fruity notes of blackcurrant, elderberry and a hint of fruit cake. Slightly woody and liquorice-like aromas then start to come through. On entry to the palate, the wine is clean, with a silky elegance and good balance. The 2014 preserves the characteristic style and attractive personality of the previous vintages. There are notes of menthol and spice on the palate, while the Mourvèdre provides a strong typical character and a nice complexity to the whole. A beautiful vintage with good cellar-ageing potential.
12 months in oak barrels (30 % new wood, 40 % barrels used for one vintage, 30% barrels used for two vintages).
