Britt’s Wine of the Month: Terrasses du Larzac 2011, Mollard & Fillon, Languedoc

Packed with dark berries, quite soft and easy-to-drink but with good structure and freshness and a spicy after-taste that reminds me of the syrah grape. And syrah is one of the grapes, the others are grenache, cinsault and carignan.

Mollard & Fillon is a new small wine company run by Nicolas Mollard and Sébastien Fillon. Sébastien also run the small high-class vineyard Le Clos du Serres.

For this Terrasses du Larzac, says Nicolas, they look for good vineyards in the area, buying up grapes from growers who work well and thoroughly. Their aim is to produce a pleasant wine with elegance and freshness. And the superb terroir of Terrasses du Larzac helps, says Nicolas.

Terrasses du Larzac is located northwest of Montpellier and is considered today as being a very interesting part of Languedoc. The mountains are near, Mont Baudile reaches 850 meters. Cool nights allow the grapes to ripen slowly, thus we get more complex flavours, says Nicolas. Approximate price 14 euro.
