2007 Las Flors De La Peira "Terrasses du Larzac" Coteaux du Languedoc

SKU #1059641

93-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2007 Coteaux du Languedoc Terrasses du Larzac Las Flors de la Peira is around 40% each Syrah and Grenache, with the rest Mourvedre, but what Mourvedre it is! Harvested only in late October, that component of this wine displayed the variety’s archetypal chocolate, bay laurel, and raw meat, and for all of its alcohol, remained juicy and bright. It would have made a gorgeous bottling on its own, but the synergies in this blend are even more formidable. Coconut, lily, marzipan, black raspberry with high-toned distilled fruit notes all pour from the glass. Chocolate richness and an amazingly vivid sense of decadently-sweet inner-mouth floral perfume inform a creamy-textured, liqueur-like palate. A reservoir of fresh black fruits flows into this rich lake from somewhere, preserving vivacity and a sense of sheer refreshment, while saline and chalky notes creep into the long finish, enhancing a sense of cool complexity that helps ward off the slight sense of heat from analytically high alcohol. This beauty strikes me as likely to benefit from at least 6-8 years in bottle." (06/09) 14.5% abv.

The minute I smelled this wine in the glass I knew we were on to something special. On the nose the wine displays a hedonistic blend of baker’s chocolate, rich oak accents, raw meat and raspberry kirsch aromas. On the palate is a kaleidoscope of flavors including dark black fruits, tobacco, smoke, coconut, chocolate and a touch of earth. The mouth feel is rich and dense with a long, decadent finish. This is a killer wine. It was the star of the night! With a dynamic winemaking team in place, this producer is one to keep an eye on. This blend, by the way, is 40% grenache, 40% syrah and 20% mourvèdre. -Alex Pross, Wine Club Director

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
