DBR Lafite Blason D'Aussières 2014

Blason d’Aussières is characterised by ripe fruit, fresh flavours, and a supple, full-bodied structure which is an excellent representation of the property’s terroir. Its aromas evoke the richness of the garrigues and the flavours are often spicy. 20% of the wine is aged in oak barrels for 12 months. The 2014 vintage is: 32% Syrah 23% Mourvèdre 18% Carignan 27% Grenache. The Languedoc underwent marked disparities in terms of climate, particularly regarding rainfall, which impacted each production zone differently. The northern and southernmost parts of the region tended to receive an excess of rain, while the central area suffered from a shortage. Even within Aussières’ vineyard, this year’s weather resulted in unevenness between the various terroirs and grape varieties. Despite very different conditions from the previous vintage, 2014 presents some similarities in terms of the balance of the wines, with good levels of extraction, lovely aromatic finesse and plenty of freshness.

Tasty wine with lots of elegance. Really earthy and smoky on the nose, but super fresh on the palate with lost of juicy raspberry.
