L’humeur vagabonde (vagabonde free style), AOP Terrasse du Larzac. Red – Organic wine certified NOP

Centennial Carignanon Ruffes
Ruffes: thick sandstone deposits accumulated there 265 million years (primary age). Their color is due to the presence of iron oxides. Numerous drying cracks (ripples carved by water) and footprints “reptiles“ leave us imagine a marshy landscape where constantly alternating dry and wet periods.
Quaternarybetween-1.9and.4My: a real chain of volcanoes came across the region Lodévois. Latest volcanoes became extinct towards Salagou -650,000years.
And red ruffes in herited from the primary era coexist with dark basalts from the Quaternary volcanic flows making these landscapes and these unique terroirs in Europe.

Tasting notes

« The sensational Terrasses du Larzac l’Humeur Vagabonde checks in as a mix of very old vine Carignan (more than 100- year-old vines), Syrah and Grenache that was completely destemmed and aged in tank. Garrigue, saddle leather, peppery herbs and ample dark fruit flow to a medium-bodied, pure, elegant red that’s already hard to resist. Drink it anytime over the coming 4-6 years”
Jeb Dunnuck – The Wine Advocate #230. 92/100.
