2013 La Croix Chaptal Le Secret de Gellone Terrasses Du Larzac

Glycerin, tobacco, savory herbs, coffee, a little barnyard and a hint of bacon fat dominate the nose. Blackberry and minerals up front on the palate with gritty tannins and hay notes. This is distinct and rustic. Great, spiking acidity carries you to the savory, dry finish. The “Secret” is the winemaker won’t divulge the specific blend, but it’s Syrah, Grenache, Carignan and Mouvedr√©. Tasty.
