Terrasses du Larzac "Le Petitou"

2021
France
Languedoc

Roughly 60% Grenache with Syrah and Carignan. The Grenache and Syrah come from her highest hillside parcels, which are windswept sites of very dense limestone with very little clay, giving the wine intense aromatics. The Carignan comes from a lower site and gives color as well as acidity. The grapes are de-stemmed and raised entirely in tank. The SO2 additions are minimal and done following devatting, then again during élevage, and a third time after blending.

"A light, vibrant and juicy wine that's a little coy at first, but with time begins to unravel excellent purity of red cherry fruit, red currants, damsons and sloes. Touches of dried leaves and fresh earth, and nice mid-palate weight. Really drinkable."
