Mas Gabriel, Clos des Lievres
ORGANIC / MEDAL WINNER / VEGAN / HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
70% Syrah, blended with Grenache and a touch of Carignan. Aged for 12 months in French oak barrels (15% new). Complex aromas of black cherries and cassis, with mild spices, the wine is concentrated and full-bodied but balanced with freshness, elegant tannins and a long finish.
Jancis Robinson 'Red fruit on the nose, but smudged, as if it didn't want to be there. Raw, a little bit of iron-filings mixed in with deep damson. Intensely savoury/Bovril (meat extract) flavours, but the damson notes persist to the finish, coated in the best of tweed-weave tannins. Just a bit of dry field herbs on the end.' 16.5/20
Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate 'Terrific notes of lavender, scrub brush, pepper and black raspberries all emerge from the sexy, downright seamless 2014 Languedoc-Pézenas Clos des Lièvres. Based on 75% Syrah, 20% Grenache and a splash of Carignan, this medium to full-bodied, layered, impeccably balanced Pézenas is a huge success in the vintage and should not be missed!' 93/100.
