Mont Rocher, Cabernet Franc, Vieilles Vignes, IGP Pays d'Oc, France, 2022
Wines inspired by the spirit of place - ‘L’esprit du lieu’. The wines of Terres Fidèles are created in the Roussillon and surrounding regions, a place of remarkable stories where layers of history and cultures are embedded in the raw and wild landscape.
Authentic, crafted small batch wines. Wines of the wilds. Old vine Grenache, Carignan, Malbec, Cinsault, Viognier and more. Wines to share..., some of which, namely Felicette, Mont Rocher and Montsablé we have been proudly producing for some time.
The grapes are harvested from hillside vineyards in the Haute Vallée of Limoux, which sit on rugged limestone rich soils. It is here some of the most expressive Cabernet Franc is grown, displaying a purity of fruit and a distinctive 'gout de terroir' (taste of the place).
There is a cold pre-ferment maceration for 5 days, before a classical fermentation for 8 to 10 days in stainless steel tank. Malolactic fermentation before bottling.
No oak ageing
Luscious and mouth-watering, blackcurrant and redcurrant fruit characters. Fresh and vibrant with a twist of nutmeg and clove through to the finish.
Steak, charcuterie, sausages, veal, or roasted chicken.
Cabernet Franc 100%
6 x 75cl
