Intense black-cherry color with good depth of color and hardly any signs of evolution. Very expressive aromas on the nose with notes of licorice, cinnamon and black pepper, with just a subtle hint of the long cask-ageing, thanks to its great complexity and ripe, concentrated fruit. Fresh and easy to drink on the palate, good backbone and lovely, polished tannins. The long, persistent finish leaves gentle balsamic reminders of the finest quality.
This wine goes well with ham, mild cheeses, casseroles which are not highly spiced, bean and pulse dishes, poultry, red meat, grills and roasts.
2017 Gerard Bertrand Terrasses du Larzac Chateau La Sauvageonne Grand Vin
The Château la Sauvageonne is a legendary winemaking estate, where optimal sun exposure, perfect location and an exceptional terroir are combined to produce wines of distinctive character. This Grand Vin is the fruit of the union between an extraordinary terroir, an original selection of grape varieties and the superior skill of the winemakers. The Terrasses du Larzac appellation is located in the northern reaches of the Hérault département, a region known for its substantial temperature variations: the distance from the sea and proximity of the Causse provide a touch of freshness on summer nights, allowing the grapes to mature slowly and gradually, developing a rich, deep color.
Intense, ruby color with tile-red hints. Prominent echoes of the scrubland in the nose, with jammy fruit and lively spice. Subtle hints of Château La dark fruit and gingerbread. Elegant and refined tannins frame the palate, with great balance and vivacity.
A perfect match for grilled steaks, cheeses and other classics of southern French cuisine. Or if you're like me...a nice hearty roast.
