Domaine La Fourmone Gigondas "Le Fauquet" 2020


Only 1 left!

Alcohol: 15%

Grape(s): Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre

Localization: Rhone Valley, France

Tasting Notes: Le Fauquet casts an opaque black-plum robe and fills the room with textbook Gigondas scents of black raspberries, black licorice, lavender-inflected garrigue, bay leaf, and hickory smoke. Fleshy and generous on the palate, the wine tightens mid-palate to reveal plentiful fine tannins that frame and buttress the wine’s chewy kernel of blackberry and plum fruit.

Food Pairing: This will make a lovely foil for leg of lamb, burgers, grilled eggplant, mushroom ragouts, and hearty stews.

The Domain: It is at the place called Petit Montmirail in the south / south-west of the limestone massif of Dentelles de Montmirail that the thirty-year-old vines of Fauquet stand tall. They produce a wine combining fruity delicacy and aromatic richness.
