Chateau Capion, Terrasses du Larzac
Located in the south of France, to the north of Montpellier, Terrasses du Larzac is a relatively new appellation, whose name reflects the terraces descending 800 metres down from the famous Causse du Larzac plateau.
Due to the position of this 800m high limestone plateau it escapes the hot summer sun and drives cool air through the vineyards planted on its slopes.
The appellation is proving its star quality, producing full-bodied, age-worthy reds with freshness and character.

A blend of 37% Syrah with 25% Grenache, 23 Cinsault and 15% Mourvedre. The unoaked Garennes Rouge is deep black-red in colour, with rich, vibrant fruit aromas of plum, blackcurrant and blackberry, combined with a clean, savoury intrigue. The palate is concentrated, deep and vivid, with great purity of fruit and Capion’s hallmark lively acidity; a fresh, pristine, juicy yet complex red from fastidiously sorted fruit, beautifully packaged and offering terrific value for money – Andrew Jefford: Drink to 2023
You thirst for more? This gives it to you! Very elegant and deep nose of spice, caramel, toasty oak, tea leaves and stone fruit. The palate is consummaately statuesque with whispers of buttery baked peach, citrus, vanilla, coconut, flowers and fine acidity. Very long, juicy and succulent. A joy to drink
