2015 Mas des Chimeres Coteaux du Languedoc Nuit Grave Terrasse du Larzac
This wine is 45% Syrah, 30% Grenache, and 35% Mourvedre, sourced from 33-year-old vines grown on basalt plateaus. The fruit is harvested by hand; the Syrah is then macerated for 6 weeks, and the Grenache for 2 months. Aged in 400L, 500L, and 600L barrels for 12 months. Terrasses du Larzac is an AOC within the Coteaux du Languedoc, created in 2005 for red wines made from Syrah, Grenache, and Mourvedre grapes, with the acceptable additions of Cinsaut and Carignan, and grown in some of the highest vineyards of the Coteaux du Languedoc on the slopes of the Cevennes.
Robe crimson purplish. The nose is expressive with red fruits, spices and licorice scents. In the mouth, Nuit grave is mild and refined, it offers aromas of black berries and a nice freshness.
Will make tastier red meats or meats in sauce, as well as refined food such as rack of lamb.
