About

90-92

Coming from a vintage described by Sumner as a "difficult, yet great year," the 2013 L'Enfant Perdu should be an outstanding wine. With close to equal parts Grenache, Carignan, Syrah and Lladoner Pelut that was all brought up in barrel, it has terrific concentration and depth to go with ripe blackberry, black raspberry, licorice, cured meats and spice. This is classic Roussillon that has big richness and texture, yet stays clean and classy on the palate, with medium to full-bodied power, fine tannin and good freshness. It will have a decade or more of longevity. Located in Maury, Domaine des Enfants is run by the talented couple of Marcel Buhler and Carrie Sumner, with Marcel managing the vineyards and Carrie spending most of the time in the cellar. These are gorgeous wines that show the classic richness and texture of the region, yet back it up with fabulous purity of fruit, notable freshness and all-around balanced profiles. These are exciting wines that I'd happily drink any day.

Product Description:

“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.
