Coteaux du Languedoc Terasses du Larzac L Esprit de la Fontaine 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

"Dill and fennel, cassis and blackberry scent and flavor L'Espirit de la Fontaine's 2007 Coteaux du Languedoc Terrasses du Larzac along with a red roasted meat richness and a stony undertone that segues into reasonably fine-grained yet formidable finishing tannins. A lick of salt lends saliva-inducement, but for all of its savory persistence, don't look to this wine for charm. Expect it to benefit from at least another year in bottle, though the track record is not yet established for this cuvees long-term potential. (And given the firm, reduced character exhibited by its components when I tasted them in December, 2008, I wonder whether this wine has as yet really ever relaxed or revealed a gentler side)....90" WA 08/11
