Faugeres is a beautiful, hilly region about 40kms north of Carcassonne in South West France’s Languedoc region. What makes it so special for vines is its ruggedly schisty, stony soils. Binet Jacquet work their vines 100% biodynamically which gives the resulting wines an unmistakable minerality and freshness.
This, their “basic” Faugeres, has deep, dense red cherry fruit, hints of local herb and garrigue, medium body and a pure, fresh, mineral finish. An impressive and characterful red for the price.
