La Pèira las Flors de la Pèira 2006
This Languedoc offering provides ample acidity to balance the hefty oak and tannins that are present. A very floral nose, with hints of coconut that give way to roasted espresso. Dark cherries are also prevalent throughout. This is, without a doubt, one of the best Languedoc wines I have tasted.Add winemaker's notes

This Languedoc offering provides ample acidity to balance the hefty oak and tannins that are present. A very floral nose, with hints of coconut that give way to roasted espresso. Dark cherries are also prevalent throughout. This is, without a doubt, one of the best Languedoc wines I have tasted.
The 2006 Coteaux du Languedoc Terrasses du Larzac Las Flors de la Peira mdash; with a bit more Grenache and corresponding less Syrah than its 2007 counterpart mdash; displays a simultaneously ravishing and decadent nose of fading lilies, iris, candied black fruits, mint chocolate, resin, and baking spices. Chalky, stony foundations under-grid the chocolate-drenched and spice-dusted black fruits on the palate, and an inner mouth floral profusion persists right through to a superbly soothing finish. In both perfume and its cocoa-power richness and velvet texture, this puts me in mend of a great Pomerol. For as far-gone on sheer ripeness and decadence as it is, this retains a wonderful sense of lift and elegance. Here is further proof (in a dramatically different style from Oliver Jullienrsquo;s wine) that 2006 was especially favored in this sector of the Terrasses du Larzac, and certainly this wine bids fair to evolve fascinatingly for at least a decade.
