"La Maison Jaune", Domaine J.M. Alquier
Bottle size: 75cl
Out of stock
The Faugères soil is dominated by grey schist, friable schist apparently, if that is not oxymoronic. The resulting wines, where vines are old and yields are low, as here, can be rich, savoury and take on complex gamey notes with maturity. Located just to the north-east of Beziers, Faugères deserves more attention.
The significance of the eponymous yellow house 'Maison Jaune' is not entirely clear. What is clear is that their 'Maison Jaune' is a prestige cuvée, made up of 80% old vine Grenache and aged for 14 months in barriqus, 10% of which are new.
