Binet Jacquet Faugeres R 2016
A traditional, meaty Faugeres made from Grenache (40%), Syrah (40%), with the rest Carignan and Mourvedre. The Reserve is aged for two years in French oak. It's a 'natural' wine, (natural yeasts, no sulpur, fining of filtration).
A gorgeous deep colour, heady aromas of flowering shrub, herbs and serious quantities of dark smoky fruit. The palate is full, warm and round, but with good firmness, and lots of plummy fruit.
Region: Faugeres, France
