"Tasted from barrel, the 2012 L'enfant perdu is a sensational-looking 2012 that has full-bodied richness and depth to go with lots of darker fruits, cassis, liquorice and spice. Made from Grenache, Carignan, Syrah and Lladoner Pelut, it has a voluptuous, hedonistic style and should drink well for upward of a decade." The Wine Advocate 2015
“L’enfant perdu” is our secondary wine, without being a typical secondary one. The constellation differs each year, depending on which vineyards are chosen for our top wine, but it always contains all of our four types of grapes, namely Grenache, Carignan, Lladoner pelut and Syrah. Generally our secondary wine consists of two thirds grapes from our younger vineyards which have an age range from 10 to 50 years. Half of this wine is developed in French barrels holding 300-600l and the other half finds its place in concrete tanks.
