The Oddbins Take

The French find it hard to explain the concept of terroir to Brits as there is no natural English translation. It's one of those things you either get or something you may never understand. It's like any film by M. Night Shyamalan, if you come to terms with the fact everyone in the film is probably already dead or from the future or all pretending Mel Gibson is a good actor (sorry, spoiler) you'll have a wonderful time. If not, all you'll be left with is plot holes and the urge to ask your fellow cinema goers, "so his name is really Night?"

Really, terroir is like the concept of love or the colour blue, it cannot be defined by words, in the broadest terms it is a sense of place made manifest in wine, but you can only truly grasp terroir through taste. Sip on Chateau Ciffre Terroirs Gaugeres, close your eyes and let the intense dark berried fruits wash over you, followed by waves of delicate violets, the scent of Havana cigars and garrigue herbs under the warm Mediterranean sun and in no time, you’ll be transported to the rugged land of the Languedoc – that's terroir!
