Mas Conscience Le Cas VDP L’Herault 2008

14% abv

91 points Robert Parker “The Vidals’ 2008 Le Cas is not only an irresistibly juicy, bright example of the charming interplay of dark berries and mineral nuances that Carignan can exhibit (traits known to too few wine lovers), it also displays an unusual levity, the function of a vintage in which this fruit of ancient vines near the windy gorge of the Herault had to hang well into October and still rendered barely 13% alcohol. Ripe yet tart elderberry and black berry mingle with salt, chalk, iodine, and shrimp shell, while bittersweet floral perfume – doubtless enhanced by the inclusion of stems in the ferment – wafts alluringly throughout. If this doesn’t liberate your salivary glands and perk you up, I wonder what red wine would! I’m hoping to resist opening at least a bottle or two for longer than the first two years, just to see how this might evolve thereafter. From chalky and cobbled soils proximate to Puechabon and St.-Jean-de-Fos – including sites almost on the rim of the Herault gorge – Laurent and Genevieve Vidal are continuing to render some of the more distinctively, indeed diversely delicious wines in the Terrasses du Larzac.” 13.5% abv.
