It's like drinking a barnyard (in the best way)

Lighter than barral. Lovely thought. Light but evident tannins. Hits all the right notes softly.

90% Mourvèdre and the rest Grenache bush vines. 500 meters, the highest elevation of Faugeres.

Cmon baby light my fire. I little lighter than I prefer. But good with spicy food or hard aged cheeses. I ate with spicy almonds too. Delish.

Difficult to find and not an every day wine. Mas d'Alezon Faugeres 'Monfalette' 2013 is in the border of we may consider a natural wine: very little sulphur added, biodynamic unfiltered, fermented with spontaneous yeast in concrete vessels using 'foot piegage' and neutral oak. Old -school - low intervention farming and winemaking. Gamey - earthy -clyish aromas with light body (only 12.5 abv) but showing a second layer of complexity with spicy notes. 90%Mourvedere - 10% Grenache. Welcome to the real Languedoc-Roussillon wines!!

Earthy, funky. Dry, but with some fruit. Tasty.

Very specific flavour that needs to be paired with the right food. Reminiscent of leather, sausage meat, and milky half fermented syrah. This is not for the casual wine drinker. Definitely an aquired taste.
