Bright, gleaming cherry red. Spices, garrigue, smoked meat and red berry fruit intermingle on the nose. The palate opens with superb freshness with fine, velvety tannins, followed by mentholated aromas, blackberry, cherry, black olive tapenade and smoked wood. Lovely minerality on the finish. The 2019 vintage is true to the atypical and highly individual profile of this wine, and once again we have a magnificent harvest. Great ageing potential in perspective. We’ve got a new label for our Faugères, and how could we call this big, strapping guy anything but “Le gaillard”…?

Vinification

Traditionally vinified. Grapes are destemmed and sorted. The Carignan is vinified without crushing or pressing the grapes; for the Syrah, 50% of the grapes are crushed and then they are vinifed without pumping over (the cap is occasionally moistened); the Grenache is vinifed at 30 °C for one month. Malolactic fermentation occurs with the marc.
