Le Clos Rouge, Piccolo


Le Clos Rouge, Piccolo, Pays de l’Hérault – 12€

Le Clos Rouge is one of the newer estates of the Terrasses du Languedoc, based in St Jean de la Blaquière.  Krystal Brot made her first wines there in 2014.

Piccolo is a pure Cinsault and a delicious example of that often-over-looked grape variety.  Often it is used for rosé wines, but increasingly it is making reds that are equally enjoyable.  The colour is quite light, and the flavours are fresh and perfumed, with fragrant red fruit and an elegant finish.
