Bruno Lafon & Francois Chamboisier, Minervois 'Racine', Minervois, Languedoc, France 2016

Regular price £10.99

Serious Languedoc born of a collaboration of two great producers - olives, spice, and a huge finish.

This venture brings together the Burgundian Bruno Lafon, owner of Domaine Magellan in the Languedoc, and François Chamboissier from Bordeaux in a project in the south of France where they seek out great parcels of vineyards. Made from vineyards in the La Livinière village area, grown on clay and limestone soils that give a fullness to the wine. The Grenache are old bush vines very well adapted to the hot climate and minimal rainfall of this area which give a big, juicy flavours and to these are added 20% of Syrah grapes for added substance and aromatics. Contains Sulphites.

Tasting Note: Classic Languedoc - A deep red-purple colour. Aromas of dark berries such as damson and dark cherries. Dark berry flavours, fresh acidity, soft tannins and a spicy finish.
