2010 La Peira En Damaisella Obriers Terrasses Du Larzac
91 Points Robert Parker
Wine Library Price - $18.98
Plus free shipping on 6 bottles with code LP2010

Those of you who have followed the reviews from Robert Parker himself will be thrilled with today's huge offer.

One of the best new values to arrive to the shop, the 2010 Les Obriers earned a huge 91 Point score from Robert Parker and comes in at just $18.98 per bottle plus free shipping on 6+ bottles.

This is from one of the hottest estates in the region and we were thrilled to discover the last few cases of this wine available in the inventory of our supplier.  We have had other vintages of this wine in the past and they have all been huge hits.  Now totally sold out, this is the only vintage we have available at the moment ... and it's a big one!

Take a look at the notes below from Robert Parker himself!

"The least expensive cuvee, the 2010 Les Obriers Terrasses du Larzac is a special selection made for American importer Eric Solomon. The brilliant Claude Gros, who also produces what I believe is the best wine of the Roussillon, Chateau de Negly, oversees this unfined and unfiltered beauty made from an intriguing blend of 65% Cinsault and 35% Carignan aged 18-24 months in wood foudres. This much Cinsault usually produces a light wine as well as magnificent roses, but this offering is surprisingly deep. The flowery component of this varietal, combined with deep raspberry and kirsch-like fruit, medium body and an elegant style give this wine a Burgundian sensuality and finesse. I do not believe this remarkable 2010 will age well given its varietal composition, but who really knows? Certainly it is brilliant now and should continue to drink well for 3-4 years. Don’t miss it, especially if you love flowers, raspberries and finesse." - 91 Points

Those of you wondering how well this will age should note that Robert Parker rated the wine in 2012. Jeb Dunnuck from the Wine Advocate went back and rated the wine 91 Points again in 2014 and noted:

"The 2010 Coteaux du Languedoc Terrasses du Larzac Les Obriers gives up ample black cherry, mineral, pepper and wild herbs to go with a medium-bodied, layered and yet elegant overall profile Aging beautifully and still youthful and vibrant, it will have another 4-5 years of longevity."
