Wine of the Week: Luc Lapeyre L’ Amourier 2008

April 21st, 2011

Having crossed the threshold, as you remove your coat, take care to remove your watch as well. There is no longer any rush. We are now on vineyard time. It is now the vine, along with the climate, which decides. For some time now, we have synchronized our internal clocks with those of the plants. Having learned that fighting, forcing and bending are useless; we have instead dedicated our energy to observing, listening, breathing and maybe even understanding.

A bouquet of ripe black and red fruits, the wine palate is full-bodied. It has a soft attack but the sharp tannins that are drawn out in the aftertaste give it a perfect balance of “fullness and freshness.”
