High elevation Languedoc from celebrated lieu dit Montpeyroux, 30% Mourvèdre, 30% Carignan, 25% Syrah, 10% Grenache, 5% Cinsault. 35 year old vines growing out of limestone, clay, scree, and blue marl (with fossil deposits). Big, soft fruit up front with plenty of structure to back it up. Lively. Stout.

First wine in about a week. This stuff is insane! Rich, chewy, blueberry, wild herbs and blueberry finish....and it's not even ready yet. Montpeyroux has one of the best terroir in France

Un de mes vins coup de foudre ! Matière soyeux avec des fruit et des tanins a tombé par terre ! Je me damnerais pour ce vin :)

Sylvain Fadat's wines are some of the most overlooked in the #kermitlynch book, IMHO, and that's a shame because they are fantastic with a high QPR. The Mourvèdre really dominates now, in all its dark, wild splendor, and doing its best Tempier impersonation. Carignan provides some juicy acidity. #glassafterglass

Dark tones, earthy with lots of body and good tannins

Pick And Pour

Deep dark fruits with a little bit of floral on the nose, robust body with medium tannins. This is a great value.

I think this was maybe 18$ retail when purchased. A true testament to the fact that you don't have to spend a lot of $$ on wine to lay it down. This is delicious. Still showing deep red, black primary fruit- chewy, and earthy - garrigue for days!! Well done Sylvian, bravo!
