Binet Jacquet Faugeres Grand Reserve 2017
Imported directly from Faugeres, Binet Jacquet is situated in the foothills of the
Cevennes. The stoney soil here, coupled with hours of summer sunshine are reflected
wonderfully in Binet Jacquet’s wines; and what’s more they use natural techniques in the
vineyard to avoid the use of chemical
fertilizers or herbicides.
Who says Faugeres is backward and rustic? This is a low yield, terroir driven wine with a
wonderful purity of deep, dark, meaty Mourvèdre. This is backed up by some Syrah spice and jammy Grenache and Cinsault. Typical, rich, warming and beautifully made Faugeres.
Region: Faugeres, Languedoc
Grapes: Grenache, Syrah, Mouvedre
