Domaine Farraud 'Mas des Restanques' 2021 VacqueyrasRegular price €18,90
This domain was founded in 2007 and is today owned by the son of the house, Philippe, they have been organically certified since 2012. The finesse and work in the vineyard are paying off and they are undoubtedly among the better domains in this appellation. The three grape varieties are planted on a surface of gravel, sand and limestone. The harvest is done manually in the early morning. Afterwards, the wine is placed in stainless steel tanks and undergoes natural fermentation. The wine is then bottle-aged for 6 months. This gives us a refined wine from this warm region. In the nose we notice marmalade of blueberries, dried herbs and cassis. Tasting reveals ripe, blue fruit with a light 'garrigue' note in the undertone. The final is a perfect balance with the acids and balanced tannins. We serve this wine at around 16° C in a Bordeaux glass. A wine that will certainly convince you and your company. Hello!
