A lovely Carignan-Merlot blend from the sunny south of France. This wine is made by the modern Les Vignobles Foncalieu cooperative based in Arzens, south-east of Toulouse. The dry, sunny region is cooled by the Mediterranean Sea breezes and is perfectly suited to the Carignan and Merlot varieties. Red berry aromas with a touch of sweet spice on the nose. Red fruits and plum notes on the palate are supported by fine tannins and a subtly peppered finish. A great accompaniment to charcuterie and cheeses.
Black, meaty and appealing on the nose. There are complex aromas of ripe red fruit mixed with notes of wood. The palate is soft and has round, voluptuous tannins resulting in a good balance and fantastic length.
The nose has jasmine tea notes with white pepper held together by a fine sandy structure. On the palate there are bright floral and mineral nuances with a lingeringly spicy, ginger and exotic finish. A hugely and broadly appealing and accessible Gewürz.
