LA MAISON LAFON, Les Temps Changent, AOP Languedoc, Rouge, 2018

Our Syrah are planted facing north, it changes every thing ! Bruno's comment "I really like the floral aromas and the elegance of the wines from this vineyard

The wine

This wine is very unique by its freshness, its balance , very far from the standarts in Languedoc : floral nose , black and white peper , very fine after taste

L’exposition Nord Ouest et la date des vendanges donnent à ce vin une fraîcheur et un équilibre très rares en Languedoc: très floral et poivré une belle densité sans lourdeur, les tannins sont très fins et élégants.

"A smoky, spicy red, offering blackberry and currant notes, cast with wild herb, dark chocolate and meaty elements, and muscular tannins. Drink now through 2024" [+]
