2014 Domaine de La Reserve d'O Bilbo
Region: Languedoc Les Terrasses du Larzac, Languedoc, Languedoc Roussillon, France
Light to medium ruby red. Slightly stinky attack on the nose, almost like cured meats. Wears off in around 30 minutes or so and gets a little candied cherries, spices and a little smoky. Completely different palate than the nose. Low plus tannins (4.5/10) and low to medium bodied. Bright palate with soft red cherries and bright acidity but balanced. A bit of bret, with white pepper and roses. A little rustic in the medium finish with some wet rocks.
Blend of 45% Grenache, 45% Syrah and 10% Cinsault. From the Arboras commune.
2017 till 2020.
