John Wilson’s Irish Times Article on the Terrasses du Larzac
“La Pèira, one of the new superstars of Terrasses du Larzac”
From the Financial Times (I think the answer lies in the soil) to the Bangkok Post (A Great Newborn from the Larzac); from Bettane & Desseauve’s appreciation (Appellation of the Year 2011: “Un terroir , un vrai”) to the digital world of Technorati (The Best Appellation You’ve Never Heard of), the Terrasses du Larzac has been looked at in print a few times.
Not to mention articles in Decanter and being designated as Primus inter pares in the Revue des Vins de France’s « Classement des Terroirs du Languedoc ».
This weekend saw John Wilson publish an article in the Irish Times worth reading and a good introduction. Link here: Hitting the high notes – The Irish Times
“Terrasses du Larzac, seems to be the name on everybody’s lips. Not only does it include two established superstars, Mas de Daumas Gassac and Grange des Pères (although neither of which use the term Terrasses du Larzac), this area also has the greatest concentration of both great and very promising estates in the Languedoc.”
The very limited amount of the La Pèira wines are available in Ireland through Gary Gubbins/RNW can be found here: Wine Searcher.
