Domaine La Sarabande Faugeres

Cracka Review

A blend of 60% Grenache, 25% Carignan and 15% Syrah and Mourvedre grapes sourced from our 'Mas de Lanus' and 'La Clavel' vineyards in Autignac. 

The wine has a deep rich ripe cherry appearance. The aromas are dominated by an elevated fruit character reminiscent of plums with a layer of wild herbs. The Carignan adds a forest floor character with wet earth and mushroom aromas. A proportion of the Carignan underwent malolactic fermetation in 500L French barriques. This adds a very slight intrigue to the aroma and a strength to the palate. The palate is packed with fruit but finishes with smooth tannins and a lingering aftertaste. 

Drinking well in 2012 but will continue to improve for a few years yet. Best drunk before 2015.



Reviews and Accolades

Round, spicy fruit and a tannic streak. Mid-weight with good balance. Nothing is going to stand still here and I sense that Domaine la Sarabande has far to go.

Expert Reviews

The Wine Front (2010 Vintage) says
Pepper, dark fruit, stony, aromatic dried herb, some chocolate. Medium to full bodied, grainy tannin, earthy savoury flavours. Has that wild South of France feel in spades. Grippy. Excellent.
