Clos du Prieur Terrasses du Larzac by Jean Orliac 2011 / 2012 (RP:90+)

Vintage

Clos du Prieur站在深藏不露的Terrasses du Larzac山坳內,此處比著名的Pic-St-Loup板塊因為山谷風向令此處平均氣溫更低,故Grenache和Syrah在特定年分可載乘更多風土性,但寒涼感令Mourvedre難以成熟,所以少有這品種在內,但Terrasses du Larzac區塊的複雜多樣性土壤和微氣候在未來日子更有機會令人看見多振奮的大自然風格,的確讓人拭目以待!

Clos du Prieur 是由 Orliac 家族創立,Jean Orliac 已一早是在Pic St. Loup 與 Domaine de l’Hortus合作的獨立葡萄種植者。

產區:
Coteaux du Languedoc

產地:
法國

葡萄園面積:
7 公頃

土壤:
來自白堊紀的啡土。10% - 20% 斜坡。葡萄園位於150m至200m海拔。

葡萄品種:
60% Grenache, 30% Syrah, 10% Carignan

釀造:
以傳統方法釀造,即人手採摘、腳踩葡萄、簡約的酒窖設備。這能讓高濃度的酒可以在法國橡木桶中陳年18至24個月,一半在新桶,另一半在一年桶。

品酒筆記:
濃郁香氣包括灌木叢、乾香草、黑果、石灰石和甜味。口感圓潤和帶辛辣,展現Grenache性格。比 Grande Cuvee Domaine de l’Hortus Red 更直接的酒,但也有乾和精準的收結。


Clos du Prieur is created by the Orliac family and Jean Orliac was already one of the first independent wine growers in the Pic St.Loup with Domaine de l’Hortus.

Region:
Coteaux du Languedoc

Country of Origin:
France

 Vineyard area:
7 hectares

Soil:
Brown soils formed on scree from the Cretaceous. Slope of 10 to 20% incline. Vineyard located from 150m to 200m high.

Grape varieties:
60% Grenache, 30% Syrah, 10% Carignan

Vinification:
Vinified in a traditional way: hand picking, treading with the feet, minimum simplified cellar equipment. The high concentration of the wines allows a long ageing in French oak, between 18 and 24 months, half in new barrels and half in one-year old barrels.

Tasting Notes:
Very aromatic nose of guarrigue, dried herbs, black fruits, chalk and sweetness coming out. Round and spicy on the palate, pure expression of the Grenache grape. A bigger, “in the face” wine than the Grande Cuvee Domaine de l’Hortus red, yet with a dry and much precised finish.
