2018 Domaine de la Réserve d'O "La Réserve d'O" Terrasses du Larzac (Previously $25)

SKU #1512623 Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark I am getting glimpses of beautiful fruit, and intriguing notes of baking bread, but it's not giving much away. Stunning raspberry and blackcurrant fruit that has a shimmering intensity. Seems to glow from the inside, like a ruby lit up inside coal. The texture on this wine is beautiful, like a hand-turned clay vessel that has come off the wheel and gone through the first firing, before it has been glazed, silky but rough. So much life in this wine! But needs decanting and another year of cellaring. 17.5/20 points (TC) Inner quote mark (6/2020)

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 friendship. Marie owned a wine shop but always wanted to pursue growing, so she and her husband Frédéric 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 "Réserve 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*
