Region

The Languedoc is a vast region stretching across much of the south and Mediterranean and is France`s single largest vineyard entity for its Vins de Pays wines. Within the Languedoc lie several distinctly identified Vins de Pays (including the l`Aude, Gard and Hérault) and many generic appellations that maintain traditional local blends and wine styles such as Minervois, Corbières, Pic Saint Loup and Fitou.

Producer

Also called `Clos l`Armet`, this domaine is situated next to Montpellier and has been family run by the Biscaye family for five generations. Emmanuel Biscaye has been in charge since the death of his grandfather over 15 years ago. He was still a student when he inherited the domaine and has worked to update the vineyard and vinification techniques to create wines which are modern and dynamic, but still in keeping with the family traditions.
Tasting Notes
Made from 100% Marselan (a crossing of Grenache and Cabernet Sauvignon), the wine is an intense ruby red in colour with notes of fresh black fruits on the nose. Soft and ripe on the palate bursting full of blackberry and cherry flavours with an undertone of liquorice. Silky tannins support this soft wine which finishes long and fruity. Currently undergoing conversion to organic and will be certified in 2022.
Food
Serve with grilled meats, cold meats, pate and hard cheeses.
