Garrigue 2012 - Château de Lascaux, AOC Languedoc

Out of stock

The opinion of the sommelier

What I love about this wine is that when you smell it, you instantly land in the south of France during a sunny summer listening at the cicadas singing. Each of the three grape varieties perfectly play their part bringing together spicy flavours, red berries aromas and a long and fresh finish. This gourmet wine will perfectly pair with mixed salads with sliced ham and olives. 

 

Terroir

The Languedoc-Roussillon vineyard is the oldest and largest vineyard in the world, spanning more than 200 000 hectares. The terroir of Château Lascaux is distinguished by its very hard limestone soils covered with garrigue. This vegetation made of juniper, thyme, rosemary, lavender and sage is typical of the south of France. Its scents remind heat, cicadas and relaxation. Close to the garrigue, grapes impregnate its flavours and then take it all the way through the bottle onto your palate. Well done!

lecepage Grape variety

The blending of these three varieties is fairly typical of wines from the Languedoc appellation, and gives birth to balanced wines. Syrah brings colour to the wine and a framed structure, when the grenache shines through its generosity with its silky texture and its aromas of red and black fruits. Mourvèdre enriches the aromas with flavours of more complex spices, especially pepper

lemillesime Vintage

The year 2012 could have been disastrous in the Languedoc region. Indeed, winemakers there are used to a very constant weather year after year, and in 2012, the winter was the driest in decades and was followed by a spring and a beginning of summer almost as dry. The grapes were suffering when Mother Nature eventually showed mercy at the end of august with a few strong rainstorms that gave the vine all the water it need. The 2012 vintage was saved and ultimately very appreciated by critics. 

lerecoltant A winemaker, a family

Through its wines, Jean-Benoît Cavalier wants to demonstrate all the generosity of the Languedoc terroirs. To reach this goal, he had to take risks by modernizing his winemaking facility during the 1990s. This bet was a success as Château Lascaux is one of the most famous names in the area.
