In our most recent staff tasting, Les Clos Perdus' 2009 l'Extreme was the hands down winner. Lush grenache fruit paired with syrah? Count me in! We currently have a small quantity of the 2007 l'Extreme Rouge in stock, and it's so interesting to taste these wines side by side. The 2009 is presently so "pretty" with notes of violets, lavender and raspberry, while the 2007 (from a warmer and very strong vintage)is a bit more robust and four square with Balsamic, dark red fruits, and earthy notes. Both vintages are fantastic examples of the characterful, terroir driven and high quality wines coming out of the Roussillon these days.
