2014 Faugeres "La Closeraie" (Abbaye Sylva Plana)

Abbaye Sylva Plana, Faugeres "La Closeraie", Languedoc, France 2014

{organic} 40% Grenache, 30% Cinsault, 15% Syrah, 15% Mourvedre

JAMMY BERRY, SMOKED BLACK TEA, BIG, LUSH & PEPPERY

At this historic 1139 abbey, the monks used ancient Roman winegrowing methods. Now owned by Nicolas and Henry Ferdinand Bouchard, the estate is updated and making some of the most modern, powerful wines in the Faugeres appellation. These are rich, chewy wines with intense berry flavors. The "La Closeraie" is rich while still maintaining balance. A Closeraie is a small French garden or farm.

Serving Suggestions: Rare grilled leg of lamb or venison. This mouthful of wine will overpower less delicate foods, so go big and gamey.

2011 Faugeres "Les Novices" (Abbaye Sylva Plana)

Abbaye Sylva Plana, Faugeres "Les Novices", Languedoc, France 2011

{organic} 40% Grenache, 30% Cinsault, 15% Syrah, 15% Mourvedre

RASPBERRY & BLUEBERRY, SWEET HERB & SPICE & EVERYTHING NICE

"Les Novices" is a 1970 French film in which a sultry prostitute (played by Brigitte Bardot) and a young nun attempt to convert one another. The same story plays out in this wine, as firm, old-world structure meets sexy, spicy, seductive fruit in a marvelous tête-à-tête. One of our best values from the Languedoc!

Serving Suggestions: Steak (or lamb) tartare with harissa, sesame paste, and scallions.
