From the Critics:

  • "Silky and perfumed, with an understated elegance about it that's similar to a north Rhone Syrah, the 2008 La Peira Coteaux du Languedoc Les Terrasses du Larzac Les Obriers de La Peira is a barrel aged blend of 59% Cinsualt and 41% Carignan that's all from the gravel and limestone soils of the Bellefeuille vineyard. It shows captivating aromatics of freshly snipped flowers, damp earth, iron, and mineral like notes that are supported by fresh raspberry and pit fruits. The wine follows suite on the palate and displays a medium bodied, energetic texture, beautiful integration of the acid, tannin, and fruit, and a clean, excellent finish. It's not a powerhouse and shines for its balance, purity, and energy. While I would drink it over the coming 2-4 years, this could surprise and age well. Time will tell." (03/11) - 91 Pts Jeb Dunnuck - The Rhone Report
  • "As is often the case with wines from Cinsault and Carignan, the 2008 Les Obriers de la Peira displays a smoky aromatic overtone and nut husk bitterness attributable to reduction. The alkaline, stony elements that underlie this rendition of Les Obriers only tend to underscore its initial reticence. Aeration, though, reveals impressive depth of juicy, primary black fruit with the nuttiness emerging in a long finish in the form of delightfully piquant walnut oil and chard, while a mouthwateringly saline aspect adds to the wine’s impressive arsenal of mineral matter. This rather 'serious' instantiation of its cuvee will I suspect be worth following for at least half a dozen years. That Les Obriers is La Peira's least expensive bottling must in large part be attributed to its reliance on two rather unfashionable grapes; but I am coming to believe that it is a mistake to suppose that this fine value cuvee will require drinking any sooner than do its more flamboyant, seductive, and expensive siblings. (The berry richness, nutty piquancy, and mineral complexity of the bottled 2007 on this occasion lived up to the highest expectations reflected in my issue 183 rating.)"
