Our judges looked at three outstanding Languedoc reds in our Best In Show tasting, each very different from the other, but in the end this Terrasses du Larzac wine was the one which won through thanks to the way it seemed to sum up the appeal of its region. It’s dark in colour, and its aromas sketch out not just the stony, wild fruit typical of the Languedoc hills but also the scented plants (notably thyme and rosemary, but also cade, juniper, pine and sweet-scented greenbrier) which fill the garrigue scrublands and forests. After that aromatic treat, you’ll find a lively, even athletic wine with plenty of depth, energy and texture: truly a regional standard-bearer. In contrast to many ambitious Languedoc reds, oak is used sagely here.
