2015 Mas Gabinele "Faugeres" Languedoc-Roussillon

SKU #1355093 91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The classic cuvee from the estate, the 2015 Faugeres is an elegant, impressively concentrated blend of 35% Grenache, 30% Syrah, 20% Carignan and the rest Mourvèdre aged in new and once-used oak casks. It has a rich bouquet of blackcurrants, licorice, toasted spice and leather. This gives way to a full-bodied wine that has a layered, polished textured, solid mid-palate concentrate, ripe tannin and a great finish. (JD)  (4/2017)

K&L Notes

Thierry Rodriquez is the man behind this classic French GSM, and I have to say he does everything right. He started this small domaine back in 1997, and he hasn't done things the easy way. The sandstone-schist soils in this area are extremely nutrient poor, meaning that the vines have to struggle and have naturally quite low yields. Even so, Thierry insists on sustainable farming practices and harvests all his fruit by hand, sorting out unfit berries right there in the vineyard. Handling in the winery follows the same philosophy, with long, slow fermentations, gentle extraction, and a discerning balance of old and new French oak. But I don't need to bore you with all the details-taste the wine and you'll see what this attention to detail means.

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
