Clos de la Barthassade 'Pur C' IGP Pays d'Herault, France 2020
A new domaine as of 2014 in the heart of Terrasses du Larzac. A couple, Guillaume and Helene Baron, are making delicious and highly drinkable wines from some of the best terroir in the Terrasses du Larzac. Guillaume takes the unusual step–rare for Languedoc–of using 50 to 80 percent whole cluster, depending on the cuvee, which imparts very unique character to the wines. The results are extremely impressive, with every wine speaking clearly of its origin with elegance, balance and purity of fruit. This Cinsault exudes delicate tannin accompanied by dark fruits and vibrant freshness.
Pairing: duck, game meats
