Tasting Notes

A beautiful ruby hue matched by the brightness of blackcurrant, thyme flower and a hint of balsamic. Fresh and silky in the mouth, you’ll find all the fruitiness and balance here that you’d expect of its Faugères terroir.

Technical Info

The grapes are carefully de-stemmed, then soaked for four weeks to create a deep redness. After fermenting in stainless steel, the wine is matured for a full 28 months, letting the flavours blend and intensify.

Reviews

Matthew Juke MW: “With spicy, meaty, liquorice and wild herb notes underpinning a luxurious black fruit core this is a devastating wintry red.”

Katherine Dart MW: "The tannins are ripe and woven with the fruit and the acidity brings freshness and focus. There is a clarity on the finish that lifts and lengths the fruit."
