2017 Domaine de la Réserve d'O "La Réserve d'O" Terrasses du Larzac

SKU #1415702 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The primary production of the estate, the 2017 Terrasses du Larzac La Réserve d’O is a blend of 45% each Grenache and Syrah, plus 10% Cinsault. Aged in tank and amphorae, it's a delicious blend of cherries, raspberries and blueberries with garrigue and violets. Medium to full-bodied, it's silky in texture, with only soft, ephemeral tannins on the finish. (JC) Inner quote mark (5/2019)

K&L Notes

We met Marie Chauffray at the Vinifilles tasting in January of 2015 in Montpellier. The Vinifilles (which means "wine girls") is an association of women producers who own and operate their own estates. From growing to winemaking to marketing, they are involved in every aspect of their wineries' successes. I was invited by our friend Francoise Antech-Gazeau (our sparkling wine producer from the Limoux) to visit and taste her wines and meet some of her other grower-producer friends. Chauffray's was one of the most impressive wines we tasted at the event, and we immediately struck up a relationship. Marie owned a wine shop but always wanted to pursue growing, so she and her husband Frederic began looking for a vineyard. It took ten years to find the perfect plot. The vineyard, which is planted on limestone gravel, is on a unique site 400 meters above sea level in the Terrasses du Larzac sub-region of Languedoc. The farming is certified both Ecocert Organic and Demeter Biodynamic. Representing the best qualities of the estate the "Reserve d'O" is a blend of 45% Grenache, 45% Syrah with 10% Cinsault. Some of the most unique wines you will taste all year. (Keith Mabry, K&L French Regional Buyer) *Biodynamic, Natural Wine*

Although the 2016 "Terrasses" was quite good, the 2017 is definitely next level and reminds us a lot of the outstanding 2015. Layers of spiced red and black fruits coat the palate and remind of the incredible value and quality to be had with Southern French reds. Domaine De La Reserve D'O is one of our favorite direct French imports that not only farms organically but also continues to over-deliver.
