Mas Foulaquier “Violetta”
Grenache, Carignan, Syrah & Merlot
Winemaker Pierre Jéquier considers his corner of Languedoc’s Pic Saint-Loup to be a dream wine estate and this bottling has us totally convinced. Nothing naughty here—organic vines, biodynamic farming, native yeasts, no fining, no filtering. The nose of this wine is like burying your head in to dad’s leather armchair with a palate of deep violet, stewed blueberry, plum, cassis and spice box. This wine has a dark aura but is surprisingly light and could be enjoyed with a cigar or served slightly chilled with a hearty stew.
