Wine of the Week – Domaine De La Réserve D’ O 2012

Domaine De La Réserve D’O  comes from the Languedoc region of France where former wine shop owners Marie and Frederic Chauffray are producing beautiful wines with rich intensity. The 2012 received 92 points from Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate.The wine is aged in unlined concrete tanks  and is biodynamic and organic. The grapes are biodynamically farmed in the sub-region, which receives a Mistral wind  off the Mediterranean.
The grapevines are 30-plus years old and are certified organic. Cooler nights and hot sunny days help balance the acids and sugars in the grapes.

This wine is 14 percent ABV. It’s fruity, rich flavors and intensity make it a special wine for either every day drinking or celebratory occasions. Today, Terrasses du Larzac in the Langeudoc-Roussilon has been approved (since 2014) for appellation status. 20170317_151204.jpg
