Blend

Blend of the most generous and deep Syrah of the appellation, with a large proportion of Mourvèdre and Carignan, our Faugères shows the structure and minerality most characteristic of the slate hills of Faugères.

As the matter of course, Syrah is still highly dominant in the blend but Mourvèdre natural firmness bonds with the generous curve of the magnificent Grenache from Lenthéric and Cabrerolles. Carignan combines vivacity, depth and a kind of rustic character that we adore.

Maturing

10% tank
50% demi-muids (new)
40% demi-muids (one year old wood)

Tasting

The beautiful ripeness of Syrah is very well balanced due to magnificient tannins of the finest Mourvèdre, allied with a minerality, most characteristic of the Faugères terroirs. The wine is concentrated, voluptuous and elegant with beautiful freshness and great finesse. Its very strong mineral character shares Cade wood and blackberry-pie scent added to floral aroma violet.
