Review Antoine Petru    This wine shows a bright ruby colour with cherry shaded tones. The nose is impressive thanks to a nifty subtlety as well as a bewitching aromatic delicacy. There can be found nuances of red fruits slightly poached like redcurrant, raspberry with wide tones of confit rhubarb. Airing brings it up to its climax in a powerful expression of one of the best terroir of Languedoc, "Les Terrasses du Larzac".

The mouth is precisely the moment when the Cinsault takes its full amplitude. Le Pradel offers a silky texture in a full delicacy. The tannins granularity perfectly mixes concentration and accuracy. Moreover, the aromatic range never ends, delivering sparingly some teak smells, tropical fruits and beautiful universe of sweet spices, during a long finish.

 

Our Notes    Xavier Braujou is recognized by the French "INAO" (Association for the AOC classification) as the ONLY winemaker in the world who makes 100% Cinsault in new barrels!
