Domaine de Cébène Les Bancèls 2015

Faugères, Coteaux du Languedoc, Languedoc, South of France, FranceBrigitte Chevalier, a highly rated name within winemaking circles, makes wine described in the French press as the perfect, textbook example of Faugères. Her modus operandi is cooler sites in the Languedoc, organic grape growing, and careful vinification. Les Bancèls grows on two parcels planted over schist: organic syrah and grenache that is situated north and northeast; the mourvèdre vines face south. Expect a fresh, red and black-fruited wine with white pepper, classic garrigue and schistous minerality. No oak, just authenticity. Super value. Les Bancèls is a local term designating the schist terraces where many of the Domaine de Cébène vines grow.Tasted: 28 June 2019Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 28.99 BCLS Producer: Domaine de CébèneDistributors: Enoteca Bacco
