Tasting Notes

  Give it a good swirl and allow those gorgeous aromas to emerge. It has the prettiest high note of new season cherry blossom, berries and cream, a crack of black pepper and wild thyme and bayleaf. Ultra smooth, full, but not heavy, courtesy of those 80 year old vines, with the same pretty high berry coulis note carrying through to the finish and a good bit of grip. Grenache, Syrah, with a good dollop of old vine Carignan. Drink with slow cooked beef cheeks, seared duck breast with a side of pommes lyonnais or on its own.

More Info

Faugeres - North West of Montpellier - has been our radar for quite some time. They've threatened to be good value, but as the vines of the best varieties planted there are old, they tend to come in North of the £20 mark and some have gone beyond £30. Some are quite gamey and leathery and some quite sweet. But in our opinion this is just right, and despite being made from 90 + year old vines, yielding very low quantities, which in the hands of some owners would have tempted them to charge double from the off, this new producer, who has taken over a well tended vineyard is keen to get underway, so we've got in at just the right time.
