Organically farmed Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault from the foothills of Mont Alaric. The nose shows a earth, game, raspberry, and mineral laden tone with a bit of black cherry. The palate is present with moderate acid and a cherry and raspberry bramble balanced by earth and spice notes. D&M Notes
The Corbieres red 2016 from Faillenc Sainte Marie is a blend of Syrah, Grenache and Cinsault, which are fermented together after a partial destemming. The maceration period is quite long, allowing the maximum amount of color and flavor to be extracted before pressing. The wine is matured in stainless steel tanks with no exposure to oak. This allows the natural terroir-driven flavors to manifest themselves to the fullest.
The Corbieres red 2016 from Faillenc Sainte Marie is dark purple in the glass, a product of its long maceration period. This Languedoc red wine shows off an enormous character with a somewhat rustic, "animal" nose perfect blended with a bouquet of vivacious black forest berries, including blackberries, black currant and stewed plums. On the palate, its earthy flavors of garrigue are consistent with the nose, offering a strong black fruit core. The mouthfeel is quite velvety and smooth, with a firm tannic structure but not too much weight, considering its great density. Winery Notes
