  1. 1. 2 0 0 9 & 2010 WINE ADVOCATE, ISSUE #224 APRIL 2016 “While the 2010 shows a cool, Bordeaux-like elegance and austerity, the 2009 is pure southern France in its exuberant, sexy, voluptuous and hedonistic personality.”
  2. 2. LA PÈIRA 2009 I continue to absolutely love the 2009 Terrasses du Larzac la Peira, and where the 2010 shows a cool, Bordeaux-like elegance and austerity, the 2009 is pure southern France in its exuberant, sexy, voluptuous and hedonistic personality. Black raspberries, spice-box, licorice and cured meats all emerge from this full-bodied, sexy, beast of a wine. It’s worth noting that this is the first vintage were they made the final blend right after the vinification and before going into barrel. There’s no harm cracking this beauty today, but it will certainly keep for another decade or more. Drink Date 2016 – 2026 Wine Advocate 99/100 Issue #225 June 2016 WINE ADVOCATE, ISSUE #225 JUNE 2016 99/100 “Black raspberries, spice-box, licorice and cured meats all emerge from this full-bodied, sexy, beast of a wine.”
  3. 3. WINE ADVOCATE, ISSUE #215 OCT 2014 99/100 “A wine that flirts with perfection” LA PÈIRA 2009 A wine that flirts with perfection, the 2009 Terrasses du Larzac La Peira is comprised of 60% Syrah and 40% Grenache, that spent 24 months in new French oak barrels. It offers an incredible bouquet of creme de cassis, black raspberry, creamy licorice and smoked meats that gives way to a full-bodied, fabulously concentrated wine that has off-the-charts purity, a seamless, elegant texture and a blockbuster finish. One of the greatest wines I've tasted from the Languedoc, It shows the decadent, rich style of vintage, and can be enjoyed anytime over the coming decade or longer. Wine Advocate 99/100 Issue #215 Oct 2014
  4. 4. LA PÈIRA 2010 One of the standouts is the 2010 Terrasses du Larzac la Peira, and it might be the best in the lineup at maturity. Made from a blend of 60% Syrah and 40% Grenache that was brought up all in barrel, this full-bodied beauty shows a deep, concentrated, structured and cooler style to go with tons of black fruits, minerality, iron and a beef blood-like quality that comes out with time in the glass. Still youthful and fresh, with a touch of austerity, it needs another 2-3 years of cellaring and will keep through 2030. Drink Date 2019 – 2030 Wine Advocate 97+/100 Issue #225 June 2016 “One of the standouts is the 2010 Terrasses du Larzac La Peira, and it might be the best in the lineup at maturity. ” WINE ADVOCATE, ISSUE #225 JUNE 2016 97+/100
  5. 5. WINE ADVOCATE, ISSUE #225 JUNE 2016 96/100 “ Another tour de force.” LAS FLORS DE LA PÈIRA 2009 Another tour de force is the 2009 Terrasses du Larzac Las Flors de la Peira, which is 33% each Syrah and Grenache, with the rest primarily Mourvedre. Similar in style to the sexy and voluptuous 2007, yet possibly with a touch more purity (but maybe less overall density), it offers a sensational bouquet of sweet black currants, caramelized meats, licorice, black raspberries and chocolate, with an additional floral, sappy character emerging with time in the glass. Full-bodied, concentrated, yet sexy, lively and still fresh, it has terrific purity of fruit, nicely integrated acidity and a great finish. Drink this fab Terrasses du Larzac anytime over the coming decade (although it’s brilliant today). Wine Advocate 96/100 Issue #225 June 2016
  6. 6. LAS FLORS DE LA PÈIRA 2010 My favorite of the lineup (not by much) is the 2010 Terrasses du Larzac Las Flors de La Peira. A blend of 55% Grenache, 30% Syrah and the balance Mourvedre and Cinsault, aged in 25% new barrels, its inky purple color is followed by notions of black cherry, leather, licorice and assorted mineral and rocky qualities. Full-bodied, seamless and silkily textured, with beautiful mid- palate depth and integrated acidity, it will continue to shine through 2025. Drink Date 2014 – 2025 Wine Advocate 94/100 Issue #212 April 2014 “Full-bodied, seamless and silkily textured, with beautiful mid-palate depth and integrated acidity, it will continue to shine through 2025.” WINE ADVOCATE, ISSUE #212 APRIL 2014 94/100
