A blend of Mourvèdre and Grenache make for playful mates in this delicate, yet vibrant red. There’s a lavender lick, plenty of wild raspberry and mulberry and smatterings of thyme. There’s much lip-smacking to be had, but it still feels complex, there’s no arguing with Eric’s decision to bottle most of it in large format.
L’Anglore is a winery that barely needs an introduction, given its bewitching hold on the wine drinking world. Eric Pfifferling and his family are the reason for the revival of Tavel, a small town whose region is most known for dense, complex rosè/light reds. Eric is unstoppable when it comes to his pursuit against the ‘industrialization’ of wine, cultivating seven hectares and a small release of wines that one can only describe as ornate. They are like precious jewels, glittering, full of glamour and shock, true expressions of how beautiful the earth can be. They are a must for collectors and those who seek perfume and mystique in their wines.
