While Frederic wasn't sure if they would release a Terrasses du Larzac cuvee last year, the final blend of the 2012 Terrasses du Larzac looks to be outstanding. A blend of 60% Syrah and the rest an even split of Grenache and Mourvedre, it has that limestone influenced minerality to go with pretty black cherry and kirsch fruit, dusty soils, spice and licorice. Medium to full-bodied, silky and elegant, I love its overall balance, and while it will drink nicely on release, I suspect it will have a solid 10-12 years of overall longevity as well.
