A jewel of southern France - polished, elegant and intense
Laurent Calmel and Jerome Joseph are obsessed with showcasing the rugged beauty of the south of France through its wines. Made with concentrated yet fresh grapes, this rivals many a Châteauneuf for complexity and depth.

"Calmel & Joseph make a huge range of wines divided between those made from particular Languedoc terroirs and local grape varieties and modern Pays d'Oc, such as the Pinot Noir and Chardonnay (also in this review) under the Villa Blanche label. This mouthfilling but polished Larzac is one of the former. It's a blend of Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre with a little Carignan and Cinsault and is packed with flavour – sweet, smoky, gamey, stony notes, wild hedgerow berries, garriguey herbs, spices, cocoa and tangerine freshness."
