Terrasses du Larzac ‘Signature’ AOP, JFV

£15.49

Our first wine from one of France’s newest appellations, in the north of the Hérault department. This part of Languedoc is known for vineyards and sheep: hence great wines and Roquefort cheese. It’s an exceptional limestone scrubland terroir; its vineyards sit on ancient terraces above the Hérault river in St Jean de Fos. They enjoy the biggest daily temperature difference of the wider region with cooling Tramontane winds blowing from the mountainous plateau to the north. This enables the grapes to reach optimal maturity, ripe but fresh.

The wine is aged for 12 months in vats and displays a inviting garnet red, packing hefty notes of spice, ‘garrigue’, pepper and liquorice. This is a supple, well-balanced wine, whose potency is tempered by aromatic freshness. Try it with grilled beef, or vegetable ravioli with mushroom sauce.

Jacques Frelin

We first met Jacques Frelin In Paris in 1987 and this pioneer of the French organic wine movement has been our most important supplier almost from that moment. Originally from the Vendée region he worked initially with his now ex-wife at Domaine de Clairac, then with Louis Andrieu and Olivier Azan. He now runs the operation single-handedly but with the backing of his old friend Frédéric Lachaux.
Organic vineyards represented – 40 hectares. Organic since 1983.
