Calmel et Joseph ‘Les Crus’ Terrasses du Larzac

Languedoc Roussillon, France

Laurent Calmel and Jerome Joseph are two of the nicest guys you will ever meet on the French wine scene, and are doing some pretty amazing things on their beautiful organically-farmed property just a few kms from the ancient city of Carcassonne. Visiting this estate is like something straight of an episode of Rick Stein, with the Canal du Midi passing just minutes from the property – there is little more enjoyable than sitting in one of the beautiful canal-side restaurants over a very long lunch watching holidaymakers in their rented boats negotiating the locks! Rent out the farmhouse or one of the other small, beautifully appointed gites for a real taste of French rural life. But in the meantime, their wines are a wonderful catalogue of the very best the Languedoc-Roussillon region has to offer.

If you enjoy the elegance and perfume of good Mourvèdre you will absolutely love this ultra refined wine. With 50% Mourvèdreit has Syrah and Carignan in equal measure playing the supporting role in every way. The fruit-packed nose offers its classic notes of blackcurrant and spice, layered with touches of menthol and aniseed. This magnificent vintage has superb balance, with a silky texture, velvety tannins, and aromas of eucalyptus, elderberry, crystalized fruit with rich toasted notes on the finish.
