(2020) This blend of 70% Grenache and 30% Syrah comes from Chateau de Figuières' 70-hectare property, the vineyards all within the La Clape appellation, one of the Languedoc's most interesting with its marl-limestone soils and proximity to the ocean. Made in stainless steel, it presents a beautifully creamy, smooth profile of black fruits, dusted with a fine layer of violet and lavender. On the palate there's terrific juiciness, the tangy, sour black cherry edge to the acidity and the firm but fine tannins wrapped around the core of sweet black fruit. A lovely wine which the producer hopes to bring to the UK. Around 7.50€ in France at time of review.
