L'hirondelle De Faugeres

Colline de L'Hirondelle

Cocolico Languedoc Red Blend

Interesting blend from the Languedoc. 65% Chenancon, 20% Mouvedre, 15% Carignan. Well balanced and really wants you to pair this with food right away. — 6 days ago

Domaine Paterianakis

Melissokipos Vineyard Kotsifali-Mantilari blend 2018

A blend of native Greek varietals from Crete. Quite dry finish & succulent enough dark red & black fruits in a medium body. Has a peppery snap to finish that reminds me of some blends from Faugeres/ South of France. I like that on the back label there is recognition it’s women-made. — a year ago

Domaine de Cebene

Ex Arena Brigitte Chevalier Grenache Blend 2021

Really great value in a straightforward, honest, balanced Grenache. It’s grown within the Faugeres appellation but can’t claim the AOC apparently because it’s from deep sandy soils and not schist. No matter! Rayas grows Grenache in sand so there’s great precedent! Nose shows sappy kirsch-y fruit, lots of savory, mineral notes, and a touch of vanilla and spice. Soft and light-footed in the mouth. Quite dry, savory, and saline. Very soft tannin. Alcohol is relatively low at a stated 13.5. Drinking well now, it will certainly last a year or two longer, though I don’t think it will improve. I love wines like this. So food flexible. — a month ago

Château Faugères

Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

A brilliant effort, the 2016 Château Faugeres shines all the way through. Deep ruby colored, the nose reveals whafts of tobacco, violets, red and black plum, blackcurrant, mint, leather and forrest floor. Full bodied with boatloads of ripe and polished tannins, the wine closes with a long, intense finish. This is a fantastic wine from Château Faugeres. Drink now until 2041. — a year ago
