WINES - LES CAPRICES DU BACCHUS
The appellation, AOP Terrasses du Larzac, is relatively young, having been established in 2004 as a territory of AOP Languedoc and becoming it's own appellation in 2014. Despite its youth, the area has generated a lot of interest. Writer and journalist Andrew Jefford summed it up best: "If you were to write me out a cheque for a million Euros and tell me to go to find somewhere to make great red wine, I would look most closely of all at Terrasses du Larzac." (2008)
Terrasses du Larzac
Our current Terrasses du Larzac offering is the 2016 Les Caprices de Bacchus. We describe it as having an intense and spicy nose offering ripe, red fruit and hints of chocolate. On the palate it's rich and round and mouthfeel is supported by flavours of boysenberries and eucalyptus, and it has a supple, savoury finish. This is a generous wine that will accompany red meats and cheese especially well.
