2019 L'Anglore Terre d'Ombre
Eric Pfifferling's Domaine L'Anglore is about as iconic and influential as any winery in the past decade. Eric is a master at creating juicy, lightly extracted reds from the warmer climes of the Southern Rhone Valley. They have all of the spice and joy of Rhone wines with the texture and weight of Beaujolais and a complexity closer to Burgundy. They are simply delicious.
This is the perfect introduction to the wines of L'Anglore. 100% Grenache taken from the estate's younger vines. Lighter and less intensely flavoured than some of the other wines from the domaine, it might just have the highest level of smashability of anything in the range.
