Wine of the Week: Borie la Vitarèle Les Terres Blanches 2009

February 2nd, 2011

Continuing on my trip, leaving Perpignan and going up to Montpellier to go to the Millésime Bio show, I did make sure to stop at the table of Borie La Vitarèle to taste all the new releases. One of the wines we already have here in California is Les Terres Blanches 2009. A blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Syrah, this wine reveals the tastes of vines grown in harsh soils of limestone and clay. Full bodied with elegant tannins, rich raspberry flavors and an astonishing lingering finish.
